    Driving any of these cars doesn’t feel slow at all because the meeting only starts when you arrive.

      S63 would probably win easily

      ​@Berke AltindagI would still prefer the 7 series and even better I would take the M5

    The speed of new cars are just awesome. I remember having to do a ton of wrenching and mods 30 years ago to get a street car into the 12s. Now you have huge luxury cars doing it like its nothing.

      Yeah and 2.5 tons with a 3 litre engine that’s incredible

    Dynamic with Rory, Sam and Mat is so good. This should be the standard lineup

      Add also Chiemi Tanaka in this lineup alongside Matt Watson.

    Mat and Sam’s banter is bloody brilliant. So damn entertaining! Perhaps even more so than Mat and Yianni

      Wish we could see Coco Hayashi joining the Carwow gang of Matt Watson and Yianni.

    2. Machinshin Avatar

      I guess that is because Sam is never ever getting mad, he just laughs with it. Yianni on the other hand, gets so furious xD

    That Merc just looks so clean, such a timeless design.

      before launching, everyone said that design was uglier than previous S class.. but now,, everyone agree that New S class have sleek design

    2. sean siew Avatar
      sean siew

      @E Reinaldyit’s still uglier than the old one nonetheless, s classes had road presence back then which made them nice, the new one doesn’t look like it has any which makes it ugly in comparison

      Sakhile Nkosi

      @E Reinaldy I do remember this but relative to the competition and its previous gen it looked odd ,now that BMW is team controversial any car that has any bit of good design looks fantastic in comparison ..still think the previous gen S class is the best looking .

    4. SWENWAR Avatar

      @E Reinaldythe new one is not disappointment. This cant’t be said about the BMW though.

      The old one was more luxurious looking but this one is just amazing and elegant

    4:22 the reason there’s a soft limiter is because the engine is cold, let it warm up then it lets you rev to redline. You see it move a tiny bit up when he revs it

    If you set the M760e in full electric mode, you get extra power and you can do full throttle in stead of trying to balance it.

    1. TheMkBroadcast Avatar

      Depends how much charge is left in the car, if there’s no electric then the engine will automatically kickstart and it sounds unreal tbb

    Considering the Audi’s much lower power output compared to the M760 It did impressively well

  19. DPCcars Avatar

    Honestly, the synergy between Rory, Sam, and Mat is off the charts! It’s like watching a trio of car-enthusiast buddies having the time of their lives. Their camaraderie makes the races not only thrilling but also hilarious. The playful banter, especially between Mat and Sam, adds a whole new layer of entertainment. I couldn’t agree more with @mtho3509, this should definitely be the standard lineup. Oh, and can we talk about the Merc’s ‘special massage’ seats making a cameo in the race? Classic! 🤣🏎🔥
