    • W212 E63 AMG S wagon runs 11.7@120.4 and the SLS AMG Black Series 11.1@129.8 in MotorTrend's World's Greatest Drag Race Part 3

      While having all this impressive hardware available to them for the Best Driver's Car competition MotorTrend managed to line up the cars for they call the World's Greatest Drag Race 3. The name is over the top but with hardware including Aston Martin Vanquish, Audi R8 V10 Plus, Bentley Continental GT Speed, BMW M6, Ford Focus ST, Jaguar F-Type V8 S, Mercedes-Benz AMG E63 wagon, Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series, Nissan GT-R Track Edition, Porsche 911 Carrera 4S, Porsche Cayman S, and SRT Viper. Lining these cars up is almost mandatory.


      Keep in mind the E63 AMG S is a wagon. The sedan will be quicker as it is lighter. Still, an 11.7@120.4 is absurd performance for a wagon. This points to the all wheel drive AMG S sedan to be capable of mid 11's out of the box. That also likely means easy 10's with a tune. Incredible? You bet.

      The SLS Black Series finishes second as the GTR wins the drag race by virtue of its all wheel drive. It loses out by a tenth but it has a higher trap speed at just under five miles per hour over the GTR's 125.1. The SLS Black Series is the fastest car in the competition.

      Full results below the video, enjoy.
