744 PS Mercedes-AMG GT S Beats Many Rivals, But Not The McLaren 720S

A tuned Mercedes-AMG GT S with 744 PS (734 hp / 548 kW) produced by the twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8 should be able to challenge pretty much any supercar.

Well… when that supercar is the stunning McLaren 720S, it needs way more to be able to stand next to it, let alone beat it.

The Mercedes-AMG GT S depicted on film below is the work of JB Automotive. It packs their Stage 3 upgrade, which adds 222 PS (219 hp / 163 kW) to its output.

The German sports car turned super was filmed in Germany, during a drag racing event, where it faced some fierce competitors. Of course, the most menacing was the 720S mentioned above, which schooled it in a rolling drag race, but the GT S got its chance to show what it’s made of against other powerful vehicles.

Among the cars that have fallen victim to the said AMG GT S and its immense power was a Nissan GT-R. The list included other models, too, such as the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Corvette, but it was also taught an important lesson by a certain BMW M3, which was probably tuned to the teeth.

    Virtually nothing is a match for the 720S. It’s kickass F1 tech on the street and actually performing as advertised.
