The Mercedes S63 AMG vs Nissan 200SX drift
What do a new Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG and a Nissan 200SX race drifter have in common other than that they are both moved by turbo-charged engines driving the rear wheels?
The guys from AutoExpress headed to the race track for a drifting challenge between a storming drift-prepped Nissan 200SX and the stately Mercedes S-Class (albeit in the powerful S63 AMG form).
The Nissan 200SX racer comes with a highly-tuned 2.0-liter turbocharged four good for 520hp and 480Nm (354 lb-ft) of torque while tipping the scales at a featherweight 990kg (2,183 lbs).
On the other…two hands, the latest Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG sports a mighty 5.5-liter bi-turbo V8 twisting out 577hp (585PS) and 900 Nm (663 lb-ft), but weighs in at just under two tonnes (1,995kg or 4,398 lbs).
So which car will win this drift challenge? See the two cars on the track in the following video.
