Can The Porsche Panamera Have A Chance Of Beating A Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S And BMW M5 Competition In A Drag Race?

In a recent video, CarWow lined up three super sports cars in a drag race, two of which feature electrified hybrid drive systems: the Porsche Panamera Turbo S e-hybrid and Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S e-hybrid, and the ICE powered BMW M5 Competition.

Among the competitors, the Porsche Panamera Turbo S e-hybrid holds the title for being the heaviest, weighing in at 2350 kg. It is equipped with a four-liter V8 engine supported by an electric motor, resulting in a combined optimum power output of 700 horsepower and an optimum torque of 870 Nm. The price of this car is approximately £146,000.

However, when compared to its rivals, the Porsche Panamera Turbo S e-hybrid will face tough competition. The new Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S e-hybrid boasts an impressive 843 horsepower and 1,400 Newton meters of torque (equivalent to 1032 pound-feet) from its 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine.

Lastly, we have the BMW M5 Competition, which derives its power from a 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine, generating 625 horsepower and 750 Nm of torque. It distributes power to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic gearbox. Among the three cars, the BMW M5 Competition is the lightest, weighing in at 1,865 kg.

So, which of these high performance sports cars will come out on top? Watch the video to find out.
