Generally speaking, improving a power to weight ratio is exactly what you need in order to take on heavier, yet more powerful opponents in the straight line. The main protagonist here is this Morendi-tuned 600 horsepower Mercedes-AMG GT S, which took turns racing both a 700 hp Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG 4Matic PP-Performance Stage 2 with the PP-Performance Stage 2 tune, as well as an 830 hp Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG Gorilla Racing Stage 4 ML 63 AMG. The latter weighs a monster 700 kg (1,543 lbs) more than the Mercedes-AMG GT S, yet produces roughly 230 hp more from its large 5.5-liter twin-turbocharged V8 unit. The older Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG 4Matic PP-Performance Stage 2 uses the same engine, with the exact power and torque figures when stock – which would give it very little chance against the Mercedes-AMG GT S if there were no mods involved. Seen as though that’s not the case, we could easily classify this particular drag race as being somewhat unpredictable, and especially with that much power on tap, and the Mercedes-AMG GT S being the only car here without the benefit of an all-wheel drive launch.
