E 63 AMG S-Model Beats Nissan GT-R in The Quarter Mile

We find it a bit unfair that some media outlets out there have failed to praises the bejesus out of the Mercedes-Benz E 63 AMG S-Model, as it is currently the fastest accelerating production sedan on the planet.

Naturally, the “world's fastest accelerating” bit only happens in left hand drive versions, as they come with standard 4Matic all-wheel drive.

The following video might start off like a poor comparison between two mis-matched vehicles, as in one corner we have the national taxi of Germany and in the other the highly talked-about and “destroyer of Porsches” Nissan GT-R.

To be fair, the GT-R is a 2010 model, while the E 63 AMG S-Model is brand new, but other than that both cars are entirely stock and neither one is using launch control.

Sure, the AMG has 585 hp (577 bhp) and 800 Nm (590 lb ft) of torque, which is quite a lot more than the GT-R's 485 hp and 590 Nm (434 lb ft) of torque. This doesn't counteract in any way the fact that the majority of people watching the drag race probably first thought that “Godzilla” was going to obliterate the AMG.
