The time has come for a very inappropriate duel. The top variant of the Tesla Model S range, the P100D, comes face to face with one of the world’s most powerful 4-door cars: the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 4MATIC+.
The Tesla Model S P100D and Mercedes-AMG GT 63 4MATIC+ 4-Door Coupe are lightyears away from each other. They have nothing in common but the fact that they feature four doors each.
The Tesla Model S P100D is zero-emission sedan, powered by two electric motors and equipped with a 100 kWh battery pack, that provides it with a 615-kilometer range according tot he NEDC standard. The car hits 100 km/h (62 mph) from a standstill in just 2.4 seconds, a figure comparable to those achieved by hypercars such as Lamborghini or Ferrari models.
Its rival, the GT 63 4MATIC+ 4-Door Coupe, comes with its 4.0-liter AMG V8 twin-turbo engine, that rolls 585 horsepower to the aspahlt. It takes the car 3.4 seconds to run from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph). There is though a more potent variant in the AMG range: it is the S variant with 639 horsepower.
So who shall be place our bets on?
With the Ludicrous Plus mode on, the electric sedan is a rocket at startoff. It rapidly gains ground, but will this be the order at the finish line? Check out the result in the film below:
