# Ioniq 5 N vs CO2 AMG drag race

Carwow organized a drag race between Hyundai Ioniq 5 N and Mercedes-AMG GT 63.

The AMG-GT 63 produces huge amount of CO2, according to Mercedes, averagely 319 grams per kilometre or 31.9 kg per 100 km. Imagine how that is possible? According to Mercedes, the average fuel consumption of AMG-GT 63 is 14.1 litres per 100 km. When fuel is burnt, carbon atoms separate from very light hydrogen atoms and then every carbon atom combines with two heavy oxygen atoms (CO2). The weight of the CO2 compared to the weight of the fuel burnt, is approximately 3 times. So, 14.1 litres of gasoline, which weighs around 11 kg, becomes more than 30 kg CO2. And that’s gas, so the volume is huge.
