Check out this drag race between fully loaded Scania and Mercedes trucks
In this episode of Carwow, a popular British car-comparison YouTube show, presenter Mat and Yianni from Yiannimize are filmed challenging each other to a truck drag race.
Mat took the steering wheel of a brand new mirrorless Mercedes Actros, with a 10.7-litre engine that produces 480hp. Alongside him, you’ve got Yianni in the Scania R500, which sports a 13-litre engine that’ll put down 500hp.
The video was the first time both presenters had driven an HGV, and the experience turned out to be anything but boring for the duo – especially once the trailers were fully loaded to 44 tons!
Given there were two inexperienced drivers in the driver’s seats, it was very much the machines that had to do the trick. Which vehicle came out on top though? Check out the video and see for yourself.
