Drag race: BMW M5 v Mercedes-AMG E63 S v Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid | Autocar

  • Published: 19 July 2018
  • Which German uber-saloon is fastest: The BMW M5, Mercedes-AMG E63S or rather complicatedly-named Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid? Subscribe now: http://smarturl.it/autocar

    All have 4.0-litre V8 engines with two turbochargers attached, and all are big executive cars, and all have four-wheel drive, but beyond that they go about things in slightly different ways, as we'll explain.

    But only one can be quickest through 60mph, 100mph, a standing 1/4 mile and a standing 1/2 mile. Question is, which one?

    Matt Prior straps our timing gear to them, and run them head-to-head in an old-school shootout.

                Why no M5 Competition? The others are also the top models of their sort.

                            I love AMG, but I'm sure M5 monster is faster, you failed to launch in M5
                            M5,cs also is faster than E63s AT drag 1/4, but at rolling race E63s is faster, and Porsche is just a cheater with E Hybrid

                                                  The M5 might not have beaten the Porsche but if launched well the race would have been a lot closer. Matt Watson’s reviews are so much better.

                                                    This is about the third video i have seen where the launch on the m5 has not engaged properly, its a shame cos i think it should beat the e63....sort it out bmw, this is not a good look!

                                                        I've seen clips of both the e63 and the m5 getting to 60 in 3.1 and doing the quarter mile in 11.0 ...
                                                        Not sure about the panamera, but these two are way quicker than this video shows, some very poor launching fellas

                                                          Porche panamera 11.3 seconds? M5 did 11.1 in other drag races, so the launch was totally screwed
