Good match making: Infiniti Q50 Red Sport vs. Mercedes-AMG E43
Guessing the winner is harder than it looks
In most cases, the drag racing battles have a favorite, at least on paper, but this one is so well matched it’s hard to even speculate.
In the left corner sits the Mercedes-AMG E43, hiding a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 good for 396 hp and 384 lb-ft. It has all-wheel-drive, and it weighs 4,287 pounds.
The Infiniti Q50 is rear-wheel driven (although an all-wheel-drive is available as well), and it features a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 with 400 hp and 350 lb-ft. Tipping the scales at 3,744 lbs, the Japanese has an obvious weight advantage.
So, who would you put your money on?
