Back to the drag strip with two of the Shmeemobiles in the most unlikely of drag races! My Mercedes-AMG G63 goes up against my Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 in a head to head where you might not be able to predict the winner.
However, the G63 is no ordinary G Wagon; in this case thanks to an Akrapovic exhaust and RENNtech tune it's running a mere 727hp and 1,069Nm (from the standard 585hp and 850Nm), so plenty of punch to overcome the 2.6 tonne weight and least aerodynamic body shape of more or less anything on the road.
On the other hand, the Cayman GT4 is a nimble and lightweight sportscar with 420hp and 420Nm, but does have a manual gearbox in mine which provides sufficient challenge for the driver to be able to get a good launch from the line.
With three races head to head, joined by Christian from BOTB to pilot the G63 while I take the wheel of the GT4, let's see how they actually shape up... prepare to be surprised!
