AMG GLC 63 Drag Races Urus, Challenger, Charger, Trackhawk with surprising results
Mercedes-AMG relies heavily on its handcrafted 4.0-liter V8 mill for the high-performance credentials of the vast majority of its models. As for the top level GLC 63, it is good for 469 or 503 horsepower by opting for the “S“setup. This means that a Lamborghini Urus, the mighty Trackhawk or a Hellcat Charger should do a short job of this Merc on the Strip.
Still, if there’s one thing we’ve learned since taking advantage of the quarter-mile action from YouTube outlets such as the Drag Racing and Car Stuff, it’s never a question of judging a car by its metallic casings, even if everything looks like bone.
After all, we’ve seen people get their fair share of surprises when six-second Maxda RX-7s tear big-chunk Chevrolet gaps on just about everything or sleepers like a 1982 Ford Fairmont put Porsches to shame at the same time. 911 and the Chevy Camaros with eight seconds. results. And these are just a few examples.
The latest comes in the form of a beautiful blue Mercedes-AMG GLC 63 that lined up on the Strip against a seemingly impossible group of suitors. If this premium compact crossover SUV were in stock, no one would even dream of having a remote chance against a Lamborghini Urus, Jeep Trackhawk, Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat and maybe even the Challenger Scat Pack.
But acting like the underdog of high performance, this AMG GLC 63 probably hides a lot of changes under the hood as things are put in a very different perspective from the start. A first solo race gives us an ET of 11.1 seconds, so we’re already intrigued by the time he starts some skirmishes against a white Lamborghini Urus.
The match ends in a disgraceful defeat for the super-SUV, which posts some uninteresting results of 12.4 and 12.6 seconds. These are nowhere near enough to secure the victory, as the GLC enters ten seconds territory with 10.8 and 10.6 races to grab the public’s attention.
With the audience clearly wowed, it’s time for the Dodge chapter, with AMG doing a short job on the Challenger Scat Pack with another 10.8 seconds against the opponent’s 12-second net. The more powerful SRT Hellcat charger doesn’t fare any better even though it delivers a solid ET of 11.1 seconds.
Still, the upcoming outing against a Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk shows the GLC rider needs to have better consistency as the previous result of 10.7 seconds is now erased with an 11.4 second run that essentially handed the victory back to the Jeep. of 11.1 seconds on a silver. dish.
