Can a 2010 Mercedes-AMG E63 Beat The 2021 AMG E63 S On A Drag Strip?

The new E63 S comes with twin turbos and an all-wheel-drive system, unlike its ancestor

The folks at Throttle House pit the 2021 Mercedes-AMG E63 S against the 2010 Mercedes-AMG E63 on a drag strip

The 2021 Mercedes-AMG E63 S comes with a 4.0-liter, biturbo V-8 engine that churns out 603 horses and 627 pound-feet of torque

The 2010 Mercedes-AMG E63, on the other, is powered by a 6.2-liter, naturally aspirated V-8 mill. It puts out 518 horses and 465 pound-feet of torque

The 2021 E63 S comes with the 4MATIC+ system and a nine-speed automatic gearbox. It takes 3.3 seconds from 0-60 mph

The 2010 E63 comes with a seven-speed automatic gearbox that powers only the rear wheels. It takes four seconds from 0-60 mph

In the first drag race, the new car beat the old model by a huge margin. In the second race, however...

… they turned off the new car’s all-wheel-drive system and traction control. This gave the 2010 E63 an edge and it emerged victorious
