BMW X5M v Urus Performante v Cayenne Turbo GT v RSQ8: Power & Weight SHOWDOWN!

It's time for an efficiency SUV face-off!

We've lined up 4 of the hottest SUVs on sale today, and we will learn just how precise the producers' performance figures remain in reality!

Let's take a look at the lineup. To begin with, it's the Audi RSQ8, which is powered by a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 stated to produce 600hp and 800Nm of torque.

Following on is the BMW X5 Competitors, with its 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 declared to offer 625hp and 800Nm of torque.

Our 3rd SUV is the Porsche Turbo GT. Utilizing a really comparable 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 to the Audi, it's declared to kick out 640hp and 850Nm.

Finally, we have the Lamborghini Performante. Once again using a variation of the V8 discovered in the Audi and Porsche, it's stated to provide 666hp and 850Nm.

Will any vehicles outperform their claimed figures? Or perhaps worse, will any underperform?! Stick with Mat for this test to see for yourself!

      3 Audi’s and 1 BMW. Should have swapped one out for a GLE63s

      GLE 63s should’ve been apart of this lineup 😢

  5. twostyleboys Avatar

    After the measurement you should do a drag race for the end. Then you can connect the stats and what actually happens on the road. Would be very interesting! 😌

      @Juggernaut Alpha so they also understate their power figures

      @Gilberto That Urus was new and not broken in, it even lost to the BMW

      ​@Gilberto urus was brand new so that’s an issue. Car isn’t as powerful until first service at ~2500miles. The manufacturers limit it until then. Also new tyres have less grip and as they’re older and more scratched..grip increases.

      The stats here clearly show that the Urus should win

      ​​@Yissi Biiyte facelift BMWs always have more power added over the years over the pre facelift. Same happened with the M5

      But I do believe the Urus will win

    Carwow has defined motoring entertainment for a generation of gearheads that didn’t get to experience the old Top Gear. Love this channel! 💯

      how is spitting random power numbers entertaining

    Enjoyed this comparison, would have been good to do a drag race also. Logging boost curves even better.

      Yes. Do Dyno drag races with VW NEW BEETLE.

    The size of the aftermarket wheels on the BMW definitely add an extra ton

    1. Raheim Bowen Avatar
      Raheim Bowen

      exactly what i’m saying. not a whole ton but it def add good amount of weight to the car. those wheels are fucking huge

  12. majkiboy86 Avatar

    Matt,whoever came up with the idea of this series is a genius. We want mooore 😀 Looks like the Porsche is electronically limited with power there. Great video as always

    1. Purwanti Allan Avatar
      Purwanti Allan

      These cars are so gorgeous. Add also Porsche Cayman GT4 Clubsport MR to do drag race with them.

  13. rotatingglasssafe Avatar

    These Dyno videos are genuinely really interesting. Especially this one where 3 or the 4 cars are rebadged chassis. Just goes to show how much difference a tune makes. Love the real world power per tonne values too. Please keep this series up. I feel like you should do this as a precursor to the drag races ☺️☺️☺️☺️

      True, but the VAG cars are more than just a tune. They also have some hardware upgrades.

    3. rotatingglasssafe Avatar

      @Throttle Body yes I can imagine the intakes and exhaust setups are all slightly different but overall you have the same engine. Same turbos. Just different mapping. Intake & exhaust are only a small factor in these factory tune setups

  14. KilimitiFrriuuu Avatar

    You should also calculate the price per horse power. That would be interesting.

    Damn that RSQ8 sounded awesome

    2. Machinshin Avatar

      Best sounding of the bunch imho. The Porsche sounds very nice also, but it has an anoying “hissing” sound that the Audi does not.

    The rsq8 is basically the starting point from which porsche and Lamborghini started to make their own of it

    1. Nico Socha Avatar

      I agree, I think I would be no problem to give the RSQ8 more BHP but it needs to fit into the whole range. But no matter which of those cars, they are all very fast.

      the chassis was devolped by porsche, audi and vw together. The V8 however is a porsche engine

    3. LoodMan Avatar

      No ! Porsche V8 lol

    4. Ahmed Mahmoud Avatar

      @Hugo Ipekcorrect.
      Nonetheless in this case the audi, porsche,lamborghini cars just feels like trim levels of each others mechanically with the audi being the base, you see what i mean ?
