Audi R8 vs RSQ8: DRAG RACE!

Visit carwow to save money on your next car -
It’s time for a top-of-the-range Audi showdown!
As we all know, the R8 is the top sports car that Audi produces. We may not have the latest R8 V10 Plus here with us today (we’ve got the previous generation), but thanks to it having a stage 1 tune, it’ll produce identical stats to the Plus - 600hp & 580Nm!
As for the RSQ8, it’s the top-of-the-range Audi SUV, and it'll produce 600hp and 800Nm of torque from its 4-litre twin-turbo V8! But given that it weighs over 600kg MORE than the R8, is the result a foregone conclusion? Or will Mat's experience in drag races prove to be the deciding factor?!
There’s only one way to find out… LET’S RACE!
Thanks to Ben for joining us with his R8 -

I don't think the results weren't expected as they played out. Although the RS Q8 is a VERY impressive vehicle, two things were counting against it in these races.... aerodynamics and weight. Oh, and another, that V10 sounds good!!!

Everyone sems to go crazy for the loud 'farty sounding' pops and bags these days, but I prefer the low deep rumble of the RSQ8.

A V-10 exhaust is like nails on a chalk board. The only thing worse is the drown of a 5 cylinder. BTW, you really need to see the other driver. It adds to the competition of the race when you can put a face to the other driver. When they have a personalty like Yanni, even better.

Try reving the engine in the gear being in neutral rather than park. That should stop the limmiter.
