750PS Mercedes CLS 63 AMG Gives Lamborghini Aventador A Run For Its Money

As a general rule, it’s very hard to outrun a 700 PS supercar that also comes with all-wheel drive and can hit the 100 km/h (62 mph) mark in just 2.9 seconds.

If you want to at least not get embarrassed by a Lamborghini Aventador, you better make sure to spice up your family car with not just more power than the Lambo but definitely more torque so that you can compensate for the extra weight.

What we have here is a typical 557 PS Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 AMG (not the AMG S version apparently) that’s seen its power output grow to an impressive 750 PS.

Even though we don’t know how much torque it has as of right now, it has to be way more than its standard 720 Nm (530 lb-ft) – which was more than the Lambo had to begin with (690 Nm / 508 lb-ft).

Off the line, a stock CLS 63 AMG 4MATIC can hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.7 seconds. That is really fast for a four door saloon (coupe, whatever), yet still it’s almost a full second slower than the Lambo’s sprint time.

We can only assume that the performance upgrade helps it accelerate about as fast as the Aventador because that’s what we’re seeing in the video. In fact, it jumps off the line quicker than the Lambo which is weird to say the least, since it’s heavier and shouldn’t be able to shift gears faster.

Now even if the Aventador had a bad or more likely a mediocre start, it still managed to claw back into the race and make this a near photo finish at the end.

We won’t spoil it any further, so that you can check out who won for yourselves.
