Who’s ready for an almighty, luxurious petrol v electric drag race?!

We’ve got our hands on the Tesla Model S 100D, and it’s going head-to-head with the Mercedes S-Class S500.

So how do these cars compare? Well starting with the Model S, it’s equipped with dual electric motors which deliver AWD and 600hp. It weighs in at 2.3 tonnes, and when it was new, it cost £82,000.

Next up it’s the S-Class S500. With a 3-litre straight-six turbo under the bonnet, it can put down 435hp and 520Nm of torque. It’s also equipped with AWD, but it’ll set you back more than the Model S, coming in at £110,000.

So how do you think this will play out - will the newer S-Class snatch the win? Or will it be a walkover for the Tesla? There’s only one way to find out - LET’S RACE!

Why pick the V6 Mercedes? Anyone in this segment will buy the S580, Audi A8L 60TFSI (V8), BMW 750xi. There’s a theme, all V8’s. Either way, even the Hummer EV will shoot past them.

"S500, which means it has a 3 litre engine" Yes, yes. Obviously that's what the 500 means.

I absolutely love the internal combustion engine. YEARS of refinement and perfection to be replaced with a battery. Its heartbreaking but necessary. I blame the fact there are WAY too many cars on the road. Many households have multiple cars which I think is ruining it for us. We have dug our own grave - I'm sad I wont grow up with a good strong combustion engine like my dad and his dad did :(

so u took a car the size of an e class and with 200 hp more than the s class as a comparison. The e63 wouldve been the fair comparison but obviously the views from the elon musk cult are way more important than quality content

You guys should do a video on a possible Tesla Model 3 Plaid. What is might be like, I just wondered what it could be like?

An S500 without a huge V8 or a V12 is NOT AN S CLASS. I can't believe Merc is charging $120K for a V6. It's shameful

I think the vast majority would pick the Mercedes S. I went Audi A8L with the V8, which was a tad sportier. We’re talking all >$100 cars and Tesla just is not on my list even in it’s Plaid trim. I’d rather do Taycan if going electric.

He claim its 100D, yet 100D model has 420 Horsepower, Not 600. P100D is the 600 HP version, which does 2.7-2.8 sec 0-60, and its much faster than the S class, so what version is this car after all ? People are getting Misslead thinking this is P100D, with the 600 HP, 100D does 4.1 sec 0-60 with 420 HP, and i think this is the actuall car in the video, if it had 600 HP it would smoke the S class.

You just started to work for banking system, and for next future slave society which they intend to estabilish to avoid anarchy which will come once with global warming? (then following ice age). That's why you promote often those bullshit EV which is seen as "future" by mental retarded and.. obviously by our masters? How could you ask about results between 4xx bhp luxury limousine and 6xx whp shitty ev?! I'm just asking when you'll start to promote on this chanel.. Forced Vaccination, or those useless sign of absolute obedience - masks?
