TOP most torquey cars

1BENTLEY MULSANNE

1020Nm Power ainít that spectacular from the 6.8-litre blown V8, at 377kW, but itís a double stump-puller with more than 1000 Newtons.

A fair bit of weight to carry, though: 2711kg.

2MERCEDES AMG S65

1000Nm Why muck around with the V8- powered S63 when you can go the whole hog with the S65? Generous 6.0-litre V12 manages 463kW to complement its neat 1000Nm shove.

3TESLA MODEL S

967Nm Tesla leads the way when it comes to electric performance, in part thanks to the hefty torque that arrives the second you stand on the throttle. It really is a head-jolting experience.

4MERCEDES AMG S63

900Nm While AMG is wheeling out its new 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8, some models continue with the older-school 5.5-litre twin-turbo V8, which kicks out 430kW and 900Nm.

BENTLEY BENTAYGA

900Nm Get past the polarising looks and thereís a handy 6.0-litre twin-turbo W12 to play with. As well as 900Nm, thereís 447kW to help shift the SUVís substantial body.
