Power is sent out to all 4 wheels by means of an 8-speed automatic gearbox, and the automobile suggestions the scales at 1,865 kg. When it concerns cost, a brand-new will set you back around ₤ 111,000.

Then together with it we have the R8. It's equipped with a 5.2-litre naturally-aspirated V10 which can put down 620hp and 580Nm. Power is sent to all 4 wheels through a 7-speed double clutch automatic gearbox, and the cars and truck weighs in at 1,695 kg.

      ​@Krishit’s useless to add 911 turbo S because normal turbo smoked the M5cs already

    This drag race is very weird and this race amazed me about how the M5 is bloody quick car even it wins a break TEST considering it’s heavy weight it’s just “WOOW!”

    1. Elessar Avatar

      Whatever they did, they fucked up bad. The M5 and even the CS doesn’t stand a chance against the R8.

      ⁠​⁠@Elessar they hardly fucked up. 😂 You’re comparing a 4 door saloon to a 2 door super car, considering it’s .2 seconds off it over 1/4 mile isn’t too bad and left 😂

      @kole081 Except when my 992 Turbo S shows up. Actually I was pretty impressed with the Audi R8 – the M5 is exceptionally fast and I thought it would pull more of a gap.

      @Adam SExcept for when my Ferrari SF90 shows up. The 992 Turbo S is cool but I expect Porsche to be faster honestly.

      Especially it weighs 200kg more than the R8 and it has better breaks and a better launch

    3. Gabriel Balinski Avatar
      Gabriel Balinski

      ⁠well weight would actually give it a better launch itself

      @just a random person on the internet I mean we already know BMW massively understates their HP numbers. It’s a nice upside for the owners but not an apples to apples comparison against their competitors when comparing quoted HP numbers

    Carwow’s videos could reach new heights by including acceleration metrics like 100-200 km/h and 60-130 mph. These figures would add an exciting dimension to their content, enhancing the overall experience for enthusiasts and viewers alike.

    Anyone else think Carwow and Throttle House are by far the best car channels on YouTube? It’s not even close, feels like I’m watching Top Gear in it’s prime with both of these channels. You guys are amazing

    1. 1Helioz Avatar

      Yes, I did watch «throttle h.» and «hagerty», but carwow for me much better, watching it for years, Matt and Yanni the best! Lol

      Agreed! Throw hagerty in there as well

      Another vote for Hagerty with Jason Camissa. If anything it’s even better!
