Mercedes-AMG E63 S vs G63 vs 520hp Ford Focus RS – DRAG RACE, ROLLING RACE & BRAKE TEST!

  • Published: 27 November 2019
  • It's time for something a little different! We've managed to get ahold of a souped-up Mountune Ford Focus RS! Normally, this hot hatch, with its 350hp output, would be obliterated by the Mercedes-AMG G63 and the E63 S estate, both of which have immense, 4.0-litre, twin-turbo V8s and around 600hp! However, the Mountune RS gets a gigantic power boost, with its 2.3-litre, turbocharged engine now putting out 520hp! Is this – plus its lighter weight compared to the Mercs – enough to make it today's victor? There's only one way to find out... LET'S RACE!

    I wonder what the difference would be if the focus would have utilized launch control.

      Seems like the E class used their launch control, the RS did not

      Don't worry Mat I'm with you on that. I dont care if manual gearboxes are more involving blah blah blah but I love autos, they're easy to use, and faster for gear changes compared to manuals.

        E63 has another 100 bhp on the rs,give the rs the same power and things will be different 👍

          So a 520bhp RS is as fast as a standard 310bhp Golf R?

              £15k of mods will get Audi RS3 in to 700+ bhp showing 2.1 sec 0-60 and low 9 sec in 1/4 mile!!! This is a bad advertisement for Mountune really.

                Thats RS had almost 100 bhp more per ton advantage not to mention aero dynamic advantage.

                                        In 2nd gear the Focus is fwd only, look at the tach go right to the limiter. The clutch that couples the rear driveshaft is not strong enough, maybe because it always slips, as the car does not have center diff. The same system is in the E63 but reversed, so that clutch couples the front axle which has a lot less weight on it on accelerations, so torque is much less. It may be stronger too.

                                              I’m calling BS on the mountune performance claims. There’s just no way if it had close to 520HP and 700Nm that it would be getting left in the dust by a 2.5 ton G-wagen.

                                                Somthing had to be wrong with that Focus RS or driver, that much more power than a stock RS should give a better quarter mile time than it did.

                                                  Still slower than a bike from the 80's with 115 to the wheel.

                                                      that's the slowest fast RS ive ever seen. 520hp my ass

                                                        No way that RS has 520hp. I would want my money back! With 400hp it should be easily somewhere in the 11's or low 12 sec over 1/4 mile with AWD and launch control
