Fastest Audi RS3 v RS5 v RS7: DRAG RACE

It's time for an RS showdown!

We've got our hands on the brand Efficiency & Audi , and they're taking on versus an Competitors Plus!

So let's see how the three compare. Beginning with the RS3, it's powered by a 2.5-litre turbocharged 5 cylinder that produces 407hp (7hp more than the standard RS3, no less!) and 500Nm of torque. It weighs in at 1,560 kg, and it costs around ₤ 65,000. But be alerted, UK viewers – this one isn't being released in the UK!

Along with it we have the RS5 Competitors Plus. It's housing a 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 under the bonnet which is good for 450hp and 600Nm of torque. As you 'd expect, it's heavier than the RS3, weighing in at 1,695 kg, and it likewise costs more, can be found in at around ₤ 85,000.

Then lastly we have the Efficiency. It's powered by a 4-litre twin-turbo V8, and this provides 630hp and 850Nm. It's the heaviest automobile here, at 2,065 kg, and it's likewise the most costly, costing around ₤ 119,000.

So will it be a clean sweep for the ? Or could one of the other vehicles spring a surprise? There's just one way to discover … LET'S RACE!

    I am glad he asked the Audi guy about these damn soft limiters !

    1. Pc Avatar

      LOUD is a problem. Noise pollution is a problem that requires treatment. Therefore you are being limited in some way.

      There are rev limiters to prevent the engine from overrevving and blowing up. There are speed limiters to prevent the axles from taking damage over not being able to handle the power. There are also safety concerns over some people driving too fast on the interstate/autobahn.

      @Pc so you want to say that the car is more powerfull than it can withstand? and can the limiters be removed?

      Yes. And also have longer battery bars than RS7 and Aston Martin DB9.


    Roll the vehicle forward at around 1-5 mph and put it in neutral. You’ll bypass the soft limiter.

      Doesn’t work,i hava a rsq8,when i roll the car and then put it in N still revs up to 3000rpm,its so fucking annoying!

      Anyway guys if a car has a soft limiter is for the engine safety

    4. MP Avatar

      This is BS. The soft limiter is always on as long as a gear isn’t engaged. You can be doing 300kmh and put it in neutral to try and rev it and it’ll still have the soft limiter on. So I have no idea how you got your info and why you have so many likes.

    I think Sebastian collected more data from these races for R&D than he could do at his facility in a year.

    1. Purwanti Allan Avatar
      Purwanti Allan

      Sebastian collected way more data than Matt.

    2. Svrcko94 Avatar

      You would not believe how much data is collected and what kind of driving is in question during OEM testing.

    During the last roll race it very much looked like the RS5 backed off to allow the RS7 to pass, gotta keep the marketing right! 😆😆

      So, the car with 180 more hp won’t win this race ?

    4. Neil McMahon Avatar
      Neil McMahon

      @Guinea Pig Racing It’s also 300kg lighter so it will get away from start quicker but the RS7 power and torque will overcome that later.

      @Neil McMahon well yes that is very obvious, im quite used to Audi S and RS models, but in this particular race, it really did look like the guy in the RS5 for whatever reason had to lift off to make sure the RS7 won!

    My fave is the RS5 Coupe. Love the understated looks, and despite not having a V8, it still goes pretty well.

      For me always RS3. It weighed less than 5.

      Why Rs5 when there is M4 ?? 😂

      3:09 this is not the RS7 Performance! This is the normal 600hp and 800 NM of torque RS7! 😂

  15. OliverTrist Avatar

    I had two of those three cars in my garage for a while. the ‘3’ is like a bumblebee! But, the V6 in the ‘5’ paired with it’s active chassis is a great blend of smoothness and power. Haven’t owned a ‘7’…yet.

    Lets give a thanks to Audi Sports for being so game to join in these spectacular dragraces. I’m also pretty sure both Sebestian and Dindo gets to have alot of fun! I will say my fav guy other than Mat on the show is the guy with the black hair and ponytail. He is always fun. Yanni is also great.

    Having Yanni and other youtubers is fun, but it is also very nice having some real people from the industry. It is good to see their passion in what they are doing.

    Let’s just take a moment to apricate how stable the RS3 was at 200+ km/h with semislicks in this pouring rain

    I feel like the rs5 is the happy middle ground in every way out of those three. Such beautiful cars

    The RS3 was obviously at a HUGE disadvantage with those tyres. It would have been much closer in the dry I’m sure. I think given the choice, I’d have the RS3
