AMG A45 S v Jaguar Project 8 – DRAG RACE *£56k v £180k*

…………………………………………………….

Thanks to CS Panda for lending us the Jaguar Project 8 –

What happens when you’re filming a load of drag races and you have both the A45 S & Jaguar Project 8 on hand? Well you have them go head-to-head against each other, of course!

Now on paper, you may think this will be an easy walkover for the Project 8. With a 5-litre supercharged V8 under the bonnet, it’ll produce 600hp & 700Nm! In comparison, the AMG A45 S only has a 2-litre turbo under the bonnet, which will produce ‘just’ 421hp & 500Nm.

And how about the weight? Well, to be honest, they’re pretty even… The Jag comes in at 1672kg, while the AMG is only slightly lighter at 1630kg.

So you’re probably thinking ‘Mat, what’s the point?!’ Well, here’s the thing… While the A45 costs £56,000, that’s only a fraction of the HUGE £180,000 price tag of the Project 8! So with that in mind,, will there be such a massive difference in performance? There’s only one way to find out… LET’S RACE!

If a car has carbon ceramic brakes, you should get some heat in them first to bring out their best performance.

That Jag is really ugly, though. I have no idea why anyone would buy that against the competition.

The wheels on the Mercedes look to small for the car. Needs bigger wheels!
