Thanks to CS Panda for lending us the Jaguar Project 8 -
What happens when you're filming a load of drag races and you have both the A45 S & Jaguar Project 8 on hand? Well you have them go head-to-head against each other, of course!
Now on paper, you may think this will be an easy walkover for the Project 8. With a 5-litre supercharged V8 under the bonnet, it'll produce 600hp & 700Nm! In comparison, the AMG A45 S only has a 2-litre turbo under the bonnet, which will produce 'just' 421hp & 500Nm.
And how about the weight? Well, to be honest, they're pretty even... The Jag comes in at 1672kg, while the AMG is only slightly lighter at 1630kg.
So you're probably thinking 'Mat, what's the point?!' Well, here's the thing... While the A45 costs £56,000, that's only a fraction of the HUGE £180,000 price tag of the Project 8! So with that in mind,, will there be such a massive difference in performance? There's only one way to find out... LET'S RACE!

    • Can you stop saying dual clutch transmission is a automatic gearbox

    • Jaguar definitely Could you race monster trucks by any chance? Or maybe that 6 wheeler in the video with the cheap Bugatti, and Rolls Royce Or all the cars in that video The DC Avanti would probably win but it would still be cool

  • I feel like that mercedes is your little daily car for the rest of your life

  • The jag would be more epic in an estate version

  • If a car has carbon ceramic brakes, you should get some heat in them first to bring out their best performance.

  • Supercharger > Turbo. IMO

  • “It’s £180k but it has got a roll cage in it”

  • I honestly want to see the new Audi S6, BMW M135i and the Mercedes A45 drag each other

  • This is a complete mismatch

  • Mat do a gt86 Vs Audi TT drag race with yianni

  • That Jag is really ugly, though. I have no idea why anyone would buy that against the competition.

  • Hey Mat, would love to see the 128ti vs GTI 8

  • Doesnt the A45 have 9G SpeedShift, not the 8 speed auto?


  • The only day were you actually needed UK weather and it didn't happen

  • U can make a video with 4 cars with equal hp but different engines.

  • worlds most needed but unfair race existent

  • Tell yianni too get Aleem’s Bugatti

  • BMW X6 M vs GLE AMG

  • That Jag sounds better than hearing a live band in 2020

  • Seat leon cupra RS (kombi)!!!!!!!!🔥🔥💯💯

  • Petition for DMO to come on with his Mercedes?

  • The wheels on the Mercedes look to small for the car. Needs bigger wheels!

  • Can you start converting Nm to lb-ft for us?

  • I love your channel But do something different than drag races

  • btw the jag was alot farther then the a45 WAYYY FURTHER

  • Mat is like the minions in despicable me 2

  • V8 against a 4cyl....I wasted time watching!

  • Check Mercedes-Benz evolution videos on my channel

  • It didn’t help Matt 😆

  • Drag race... Porsche 911 turbo s vs tesla s p100d

  • Can you do an all land rover race not the sport models the normal models

  • We want big machine drag races like tractor and trucks

  • Jaguar wow

  • Zafira gsi or asta vxr vs Subaru wrx

  • M5 vs Project 8

  • What about hot lap?? It would be amazing to see Carwow do this

  • What is that sound?😍😍😍

  • £124K more than the Merc, I would have the Merc, as an every day car, and a play thing, you could have the Merc and a M2 competition, and a RS3 for the same price as the Jag


  • Get a C8 across the pond and feature it vs everything

  • You should do a C53 vs jaguar progect 8

  • Not watched till the end yet but at the beginning I thought this was a pretty pointless race. But if you class this as apples for pears and think more about the cost aspect, it makes for an interesting race. However, without checking I'm sure they raced hot hatches not to long ago and the merc was slower. Saying that it kept up at the beginning on the frost race with i found interesting.

  • Track car do track tests Matt !! Would be pretty great upgrade from the routine drag races

  • £56k for the Merc is a joke to be honest, yes it might be a bit faster and better built inside than a Honda Type R but 25 grand more? I don’t think so

  • Good vid👍🏾 Trackhawk vs x5 m competition would be pretty epic to see!!

  • 2:44

  • Rear suspension looks unusually low... it’s a conspiracy!

  • Could you make a video with a bmw 535d gt?

  • Please do off road comparison btw ford raptor and bronco pls

  • Jag is disappointing. Rather buy the Merc.

  • I'm from the future Congrats on 5mil subs

  • Can you do a dragrace with: Suzuki swift sport/Renault twingo rs/up gti/ford Fietsa st/ Peugeot 208 gti?

  • 180 for a Jag but they could only fit an Alibaba rear wing 🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

  • Mat you actually made my phone pause the video and go to google

  • How tf did that even keep up with the jag wtf

  • £180,000 for a jaguar get the fuck out of here

  • goes off like shit off a shovel

  • Please msg me the email address so I can submit my C63 507 with LSD and MONSTER this Jag.. I’m ready!!

  • Why to buy a jaguar when you could buy an M5 COMPETITION...

  • it was the Jaguar

  • Hoonicorn Vs Porsche 911 Turbo S, soon please 👌

  • Who else wants to see a gt black series here?

  • Matt: Google My phone: if u like orgasms.. I could suggest...

  • This has to by far be the best launch I've seen on your channel !!! Definitely better than any of Yani's launches... and he's reaction time has never let him down... well done Matt !!!

  • Radical SR8 vs Ariel Atom V8 please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :D

  • Hey Matt can you please drag race BMW M5 Competition, the one with 1000hp with Jaguar projet 8! I hope we will c the great race

  • This Jag is so beautiful 😍

  • Next video Drag Race is : 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 vs 2020 Camaro ZL1 1LE vs 2021 Hellcat Redeye !!!!!!!
