Porsche 911 Turbo PDK vs Mercedes SL65 AMG Black Series Drag Racing

August 15th, 2010

GTBoard put up a video of a 2010 Porsche 911 Turbo with the PDK transmission running heads up from a roll against the Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG Black Series. While the race was very close, it was surprising that the Porsche was able to jump ahead of the Benz each time when the race started, especially since the Mercedes V12 Twin Turbo Engine makes a lot more torque than the Porsche’s 6 cylinder twin turbo.

After the initial 1 car or so jump of the Porsche, the SL65 Black Series hangs on and eventually starts pulling on the Porsche, although before it can pass they run out of runway and the race is over.
