Audi R8 vs TT RS-R: Drag Race *V10 vs ABT-tuned 5cyl*

26 264
Visit carwow to save money on your next car -
It's time for an epic Audi Quattro drag race! We have an Audi TT RS-R going up against R8! On the face of it, you might think it'll be an easy walkover for the R8. But not this time! The TT RS-R has been tuned by both ABT & MRC so it'll put down an incredible 610hp - the same as the R8 V10 Plus! What's more, the TT RS-R will put down more torque - 780Nm compared to 560Nm!
So will the naturally-aspirated 5.2-litre V10 pull through for the R8 in these treacherous conditions? Or will the lighter TT RS-R pull through? There's only one way to find out... LET'S RACE!!
Thanks to Andrew for lending us his R8 -

@Nipun Singh TTRS lost because of power delivery, the na v10 has a more linear power curve while the rs needs higher rpm to reach maximum boost

On paper the TT RS has the advantage (less weight and more torque), yet they’re almost evenly matched! I’d still go with the TTRS due to it being a sexy 5 cylinder and a bit cheaper than the R8.

Thing is that in the end bigger engine ein because you need a bigger engine after 200 kmh ,you need something big to have the power to break that air barrier, for exemple on Autobahn that TT wil loose againt R8 on a longest see on the rolling race the difference between a 2l and a V10 :)) , HP is not everything, a 3l engine 333hp will be faster in the end than a 2l 381 hp for exemple because bigger is better
