Can The Toyota GR Supra Shame The Mercedes-AMG C63 S In A Drag Race? @ Top Speed



In the previous race, the GR Supra went up against a more powerful, but heavier Mustang GT Convertible and won. But the Mercedes AMG C63 S is even more powerful and actually lighter than that Mustang.

The AMG C63 S redeems itself in the rolling race

From a 31 mph roll-out, the “Merc” manages to put all 503 hp to good use, securing a win

That said, the Mercedes still weighs a hefty 4,094 pounds (1,857 kg).

On the other hand, it has a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 that makes 503 horsepower and 516 pound-feet (700 Nm).

Power goes to the rear wheels through a nine-speed automatic.

The Toyota GR Supra is, once again, the lighter competitor at 3,304 pounds (1,499 kg).

Its 3.0-liter inline-six features a twin-scroll turbocharger and makes 382 horsepower (or so they say) and 368 pound-feet (499 Nm).

Power is sent to the rear axle through a ZF eight-speed automatic.

The two cars do a total of five races – four from a dig and one from a 50 km/h (31 mph) roll. Customary to the channel, the first runs are in normal mode. Mercedes slept on the first start, giving the Supra an easy win (stay focused Sam). For the second race, Sam manages to react on time, but the featherweight GR Supra still manages to pull ahead.

The lighter Supra puts the power down better

This results in it being consistently quicker than the Merc over the 1/4-mile

Things aren’t much different in sport mode, as the Supra just rockets off the line. The more powerful AMG C63 S closes in fast at the second half of the quarter-mile, but it’s too late. The rolling race is the only one done with traction control off. The Mercedes easily takes the win here, but according to Sam “the Supra isn’t that far off”.

But it was closer than you think

Even Sam was surprised at how well the Supra kept up in the rolling race

The moral of the story is that if you want an early lead, you need a lighter car. And we also confirmed, once again, that the Supra is insanely capable pound for pound.

In sport mode the Mercedes wakes up

However, that doesn’t stop the Supra from winning again
