    • Ferrari 812 Superfast vs. Brabus tuned Mercedes-AMG W213 E63 S wagon

      A 1/4 mile race here actually favors the heavy Mercedes-AMG wagon. Why? Because despite lugging an extra 750 pounds the AMG has a twin turbo V8 powerlpant and all wheel drive. Off the line, it has the advantage.


      The Ferrari based on magazine testing has a devastating top end. As this is not a race on a prepped strip and the high revving naturally aspirated Ferrari is rear wheel drive it will come down to whether it can catch the AMG in time due to being traction limited.

      Surprisingly, it does. It manages to just pull past running a 10.73 @ 136.7 miles per hour. The E63 Estate on the other hand does an 11.14 @ 131.73 miles per hour.

      A roll race to see that V12 top end would have been fun to see...

        I heard a superfast in person, has to be the one of the best sounding motors of all time.

        Hopefully we get to see a customer 812 on the dyno soon.

        One of the world's best cars.

        This is what sets Ferrari apart from everyone else. Only Lamborghini comes close as far as the mtor but nobody else does a GT like this.
