Need help buying your next car? Click and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!
It’s the drag race you didn’t know you needed… Until today!
Mat’s in a Mercedes Actros, with a huge 10.7-litre engine that produces 480hp! Alongside him, we’ve got Yianni, who’s in the Scania R500, with an epic 13-litre engine that’ll put down 500hp!!
It’s the first time both Mat and Yianni have driven a HGV, and given how they’re so evenly powered, this one is too close to call… And just wait until they add the trailers on as well!

  • I am still laughing... The speed they cross line 😂🤦🏽‍♂️

  • One of the most entertaining races 💀and the way they were so excited for going 56 mph is just amazing 😭

    • They can go faster if you knowhow, even with the limiter on 😁

    • And just to realize Yianni got a lambo which can attain 60 mph in like 2.7 seconds

  • Absolutely LOVED this episode! Had a huge smile from start to end. I can't imagine the immense fun those two had in the trucks. But that exiting the cabin though 👏🏾🤣🤣🤣🤣

    • He needed to try to exit the old Renault Magnum :D

  • How did the respective companies react to this race? I'm dying to know! Very entertaining and informative! Thanks so much for making my day as always!

  • How can you not tell the Nm amout of these trucks, it's more impressive than their horsepower

  • 5:10 mat's reaction to the horn is priceless 😂😂

  • The drag race nobody asked for but everybody wanted

    • As always

    • You mean needed, they didnt want it because they didn't ask for it.

    • @@IA_777 Just leave me alone, I know what I'm doing

    • @@IA_777 same applies, they didnt need it cuz they didnt ask for it....

    • Next Drag race: Me and Yianni, both in drag with full make up with dress and high heels running the qtr mile

  • I’ve never been so excited to see something travel at 50 mph

  • This was the funniest drag race ever 💀

  • First race start: 6:00 Second race start: 7:23 Third race start (loaded race): 9:55 Fourth race start (loaded rolling race): 12:10 Fifth race start (loaded rolling race): 13:07

  • The braking power of trucks is astonishing. They can stop incredibly well considering the weight they have to halt. i was half expecting one of them to almost hit the steering wheel. More of this kind of thing please Carwow, this was hugely entertaining, more truck stuff

  • This was the most exciting drag race I've watched in a while. I went for a quick lesson on the Pel, got off and showered, made a drink, had my drink, then got back in time to see the end of the race. #AmazingRace .

  • Let's just appreciate Daniel for lending them the lorrys,and giving us a magnificent race.

  • I think I enjoyed this one more than every other one so far! :) BUT I am sad that you guys forgot to tell the torque numbers on those engines! That would have been awesome since that is a place where they destroy most cars! The Mercedes has more than 2200 Nm for what I could find!

  • Matt you & Yanni make a great team, love watching your vids & seeing your banter 😀

  • What a hilarious drag race! Great idea and execution! So so original and funny! Great job guys!!!

  • The way Mat came out of that truck in the end was hilarious

  • I had the chance to drive the back then prototype for the 2017 Freightliner New Cascadia, with a DD 10 gear transmission pulling a 25T load. Suddenly we were doing over 120km/hr during a Road test. It was great. Loved the truck.

  • Seeing them in trucks make me want to see different vehicle races like buses, bikes, motor bike and all sorts of bizarre stuff

  • I love how Denali keep finding perfect moves until she wins the drag race. She's very tactical in his combinations

    • I dislike that she's a BMW fan girl

    • it was indeed annoying in this video

    • I will buy every single piece of those cars then race with my home boys and girls😊

  • Just goes to show racing can be a lot of fun without actually being fast. Great show love it.

  • When you were towing, I notice the load cover was deployed on the Scania, opposed to an open load for the Merc. I still reckon the Merc would have got trounced but the Merc must have had increased drag imposed on it. But it helped with braking.

  • Everyone knows that Swedes make the best lorries.

    • Throw good peterbuilt, show em what real power is, never seen two diesels, so slow😂

    • @@jwhammo100 Peter built lmfao 🤣

    • @@jwhammo100 so what engine does peterbuilt make again?

  • Bet you guys loved it though; it's a great experience. I've done it with a trailer and done a US Peterbilt unit only. I've found out not far from me just over the Thames in Kent there's a place to do the Kenworth too. It's defo on my bucket list as the w900 is my fave US rig.

  • Daniel seems like such a chill guy, tolerating the children that Mat and Yianny are

  • Hahaha Mat, this is the funniest and most amazing drag you have ever done. I can't stop laughing.. You guys are comedians

  • PLEASE do more of this kind! It's great fun!

  • Here’s my suggestion for an unusual drag race: I would like to see a drag race between an electric bicycle, electric scooter, normal bike and moped car. Or a drag race between a Citroen 2CV and a dog.

  • this was so fun to watch, these drag races are keeping me going at word today so thank you car wow ;)

  • The first time you emergency brake a heavy vehicle is always quite remarkable. 😄 It’s impressive how violent it can be. Anyways, at least on buses.

  • These guys are the new Top gear... love the chemistry Matt and Yanni have on video. Their competitiveness is hilarious.

    • Bro, they do only dragraces. And the grand tour is the new top gear

    • @@PuerRidcully no its not, it seems u havent watched it yet :)

    • @@abdelsalamzamar6064 I watched 3 seasons of this scripted garbage. I was a fan of the original Top Gear, but they lost their magic. Is the new one out yet and good?

    • Imagine Doug in there 🤣

  • Would have been nice if they gave us more specs and info on the engines, cos I was actually really curious! Like how many cylinders, the engine configuration, torque figures. All that would have made this video that much better.. and carwow should have know that by now. So bit of a disappointment unfortunately :(

    • Its a v8 2500nm torque

    • @@neiltitmus9744 im guessing you didnt do your own idea and "google it"... this is a straight 6 (l6) with 13litres. the merc is also a straight 6 with 10.8 litres

    • Both are straight 6 with 12 speed SMG gearbox and the redline is 2500 rpm..

  • 9:57 It's amazing how Daniel is able to totally change his voice during the countdown

  • I think even for a Diesel the gear changing at the MB is happening at a extremely low RPM, even because it was on power mode.

  • The best friend-rivalry of Mat and Yianni is why Carwow is so awesome!

  • Best drag race ever! 🤣 The speed on the finish line....

  • These drag races get crazier and crazier and I'm loving it😂😂

  • These two are such great personalities. Always make me laugh lol so funny

  • Love the variety races with other vehicles other than cars, I love car but sometimes a switch up is nice.

  • Would love to see that with US/Canada spec trucks.

  • i feel like this is more intense and funny than an actual supercar drag race

  • As Matt climbed out it was like watching a cat stretch down a fence 😂

  • This is the weirdest drag race of all time but somehow it was very entertaining Edit: thanks for 500 likes :)

  • Great video and it might educate people regarding the problems truckers put up with everyday. They don't build up speed like a car, but they do stop very well. I've been driving trucks for 30 years now, and still enjoy it. Can I ask that everyone be a little more patient out there, on the roads? At roundabouts and junctions, when we pull out into the traffic, we aren't trying to upset people. There is a delay when you accelerate, especially when loaded so unfortunately when a speeding car comes whanging round the roundabout, we are already committed to the manoeuvre. 99% of us are considerate, professional drivers. There are a few that don't give a monkeys, but luckily, not that many. Stay safe Guys 🚛

  • This is one of the best videos you guys have posted, I've laughed so much

  • Brilliant. More quirky drags required!

  • I would pay to see more of truck reviews. Would be fun content.

  • Yo this was hilarious 😂 probably one of their slowest races but they were so lit up😂

  • The Mercedes seems to be shifting for fuel efficiency rather than peak power, unlike the Scania which seems to be going full on Chernobyl

    • Yeah, it didn't seen as a performance mode at all. It was still keeping the revs below 1500. Weird.

    • That's because it's a Euro6 truck, it's way stricter. If they put a measuring device on the truck it's only allowed to output twice the amount of stated emissions unlike cars who are never tested while on real roads.

    • @@Pspgamer789 Both of them are Euro 6. And I haven't seen a Euro 6 truck keep it in such low revs in real life performance mode. So perhaps he just didn't know how to turn it to P...

    • I know nothing about lorries but I do know that they're way faster than these two I work in a factory and I've seen drivers floor these things and its mind boggling how fast the acceleration is I dont get why these were so shit

    • That's seems very true! I have a feeling of these trucks were given to actual truck drivers who for example would use that clutch on demand, these trucks could probably post a second or two faster for their quarter mile times!

  • I'd love to have seen this done in trucks with a manual box

  • I'm a trucker in the UK. Love the video, please could you do a full HGV drag race please, so Renault, Volvo, Ford, Iveco etc... Would be great fun for us truckers. Not a real retail market, but you and Vani in a full test would be great for us Key workers. Please and Cheers :D

  • Braking test was absolutely amazing!

  • Anytime Matt and Yanni are on cam......the laughs are guaranteed!!!! Y’all need your own prime time

  • The Scania has always been on my short list and it's easier to service, also.

  • 8:25 1 mph difference is just enough for a lorry driver to start an overtake that is going to last for the next 20 miles

    • Yeah the famous “Elefantenrennen” the Germans like to call it

    • 1mph difference is sufficient to complete an overtake in about 50 seconds.

    • @@motosnape how? I think it should be at least around 1 minute 20 seconds if my maths is correct

    • Difference in distance covered during one minute = 27 metres. Typical max length artic = 16 metres. Rigid+trailer can be 18.5 metres, but these are less common. Typically a lorry will pull out when he’s about four to five metres off the arse end of the lorry in front, he’ll typically pull back in when he gets a considerate flash of the lights from the lorry he’s overtaking to say, you’re all clear, pull in. Time elapsed = 50 - 60 seconds.

    • @@motosnape but 32 (combined length) divided by 27 (the difference in speed) is 1.185 minutes which is 71 seconds and that doesn't include the extra length needed to safely overtake

  • Hi guys, i laughed my pants off, loved this stuff. However i would dare u to perform a drag race in mobile telescopic boom-cranes. Try the RT versions maybe, or 3 axle AT. Love to see that coming. Thanks for making this great video. 👌✌👏

  • This is the most intense drag race I’ve ever watched 🤣🤣

  • I wanna see more funny drag races like this 😂😂😂

  • Best drag race ever 😜🤠 Mat you should know that Scania are the kings when it comes to making trucks or Lorry as you call them

  • The end when he got out the truck had me rolling 🤣

  • May have been a different result if I WAS DRIVING!! 😂

  • Great connection these guys have together 🤩

  • Great vid, very funny, especially Matt getting out. That Merc was disappointing. However it was flashing indicators when emergency stopping.

  • 12:56 Scania: We have 500HP Mercedes: What is the need for 500HP WHEN WE HAVE POWER BUTTON 😂

  • This was so fun to watch, the rivalry between Yainni and Mat is hilarious.

    • Imagine their girlfriends drive these two lorries

  • The best drag race ever. Thanks for making my day 😂😂😂

  • Next time: Boeing 747 vs. Airbus A380 | Drag race, rolling race and brake test from 360 mph

  • Hi Mat,I request you to have a drag race with Volvo,scania, Mercedes trucks as well. It will be a great fun to see the drag race between all three ,💪💪👍

  • It's like Daniel is taking out the children to a field trip 😂 the way they get excited on the horn Lmao

  • 😂😂😂😂😂Just watching the 2nd run made me laugh so hard made my stomach hurt... So hilarious

  • Best drag race ever done by carwow, hands down

  • I really enjoyed this drag race...never seen big trucks doing drag race

  • We now need a truck drag race between Scanias and volvos... It would be epic.

  • HI Matt! Since you've asked, I was thinking maybe you can make a video of a much longer drag race like, a very long track with bunch of sport cars.

  • The laughter at the end was the most entertaining thing 😂😂

  • Never stop making these types of vids. Sickest thing anyone has ever thought of.

  • Hi,Mat! You can make videos with normal cars,as example bmw e46 330i (231hp) VS 330d (204hp) . I mean some closer cars to “ours” . 😁 And of its possible to show us the km/h on the final,not only the time,would be great!

  • Was waiting for the torque numbers, bet that 13liter can put out like 2200nm

  • This is surprisingly more exciting than other car drag races Edit: roses r red, violets r blue, I got so many likes because of u! Thanks for the likes!

  • Ha Ha Ha you guys are so funny. If every time you said "come on" a horse power would increase, those trucks would be the most powerful in the world.. I love your channel Mat and Yianni

  • I think the break test was the coolest, held on to my seat for a second there 😬

  • 14:06 this actually is like the same of sound and feelings when the moment you're in the airline, landing touching the ground.

  • This is the most exciting drag races because every 1mph and every second actually count And there's plenty of time to tease when you're winning

  • Being from the U.S I don’t understand all your slang terms but this was hilarious you guys are great entertainment and for whatever reason this was more interesting then the super car races and I got no clue why

  • This is actually more funny then normal drag races...

  • For those wondering, the Scania has 1,844 ft. lbs. of torque and the Mercedes has 1,623 ft. lbs.

  • Funniest drag race of you two I'd ever watched 😂😂

  • We truck drivers love such videos 😊

  • This is one of the best videos you have uploaded, you and Yianni way out of your comfort zones!

  • I had seen a Scania semi truck once in Indiana as a tanker for a local gas station. I was shocked!

  • That was more entertaining than watching any Ferrari or lambo 😂😂

  • This slow race was awesome!!! 😂

  • My idea is, Merc benz is more on comfort and luxury, while scania is more focus on practical side of thing, minimizing as much luxury without sacrificing the comfort.

    • Lorry these days are all same. They cost same, same speed, fuel efficiency, same cabin size, similar suspension, similar engine, brakes are made by one company...

  • They're having so much fun doing this!! 😅

  • Will be fun to see the drag race btwn these and the Teslsa semi.. That will be epic..Great video

  • Hands down best drag race ever!

  • Drag races and brake tests with supercars: Informative. Drag races and brake tests with lorries: Entertaining. Please do more of this, I enjoyed it a lot!

  • the sound of pure brutal diesel is awesome this drag race might have more torque than any carwow drag race

  • Never thought about it but hey, I might have assembled the fuel system in the engine to that Scania lorry! :)

  • Fantastic test best on youtube. Congrats to the Scannie though out classed the Merc. Now try manuals to see the difference in performance. You will be shocked trust me...
