Drag race features a Cadillac Escalade beating a Mercedes-Benz C300 in a straight-up drag race.

Here's a video from Cadillac that will get Merc fans up in arms for sure.

The American premium brand pits its Escalade model vs. the Mercedes-Benz C300 in a drag fight.

Not fair, really, since the C300 isn't even the most powerful C-Class offered (let alone the C63 AMG range). The two vehicles are nowhere near the same segment and the Escalade, despite its aerodynamic disadvantage, comes with a 6.2 liter V8 - an engine more than double in displacement compared to the C300's 3.0 liter V6 unit. That the Escalade can barely get a car length on the C300 ought to be a matter of embarrassment not pride.
