Can a Lamborghini Aventador beat a Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S in a drag race? Find out here.

Aventador vs GT 63

Can a Lamborghini Aventador S take down a Mercedes GT 63 S and a GT R in a drag race?

Well, probably. It does have 730 horsepower thanks to its 6.5-L V12 engine, and it can accelerate from zero to sixty in as little as 2.9 seconds thanks to all-wheel-drive. Top speed is 217 mph, which is faster than either AMG-badged Mercs.

So what does the GT R bring to the table? Not much, at least when compared to the awesome majesty of the Aventador S. A 4.0-L twin-turbo V8 produces 577 hp and 520 lb-ft of torque with zero to sixty taking 3.5 seconds. Top speed is 198 mph. It does have a 200 lb advantage over the Aventador, but that hardly seems enough to keep up with the Italian stallion.

The GT 63 S, on the other hand, is a bit more in the Aventador's league. The same twin-turbo engine now makes 630 hp and 554 lb-ft of torque, knocking zero to sixty down to just 3.2 seconds. Sadly, as a four-door sedan, the GT 63 S gives up a lot of weight to the Aventador at 4,500 lbs, making it 700 lbs heavier.

And yet, the GT 63 S still manages to win the first race against the Aventador. Mostly because the driver cheated and ran off well before the starting signal.

For some reason, this motor enthusiast meet-up in the UK doesn't have a working drag race tree, so a kind woman is up there pointing at the cars to indicate the start of the race. It's all very ad-hoc and street-race style, which gives these races a bit of rustic charm.

Sadly, we don’t get to see the Aventador have its revenge as afterward the GT 63 S takes on the GT R, then a Mercedes C 63 and an Audi RS 4 Sportback. It’s a tough series of races, but at least the GT 63 doesn’t blatantly cheat in order to win.
