New Audi RS6 Perf v BMW M5 v AMG E63 S: DRAG RACE

Thanks to everyone for providing us their automobiles for this race:
: @exclusiveautos6770

We have actually got our hands on the all- Efficiency, and it's about to go head-to-head against its crucial competitors, the and S!

Believe this line-up seems familiar? Well, that's since it is – we have actually done this race before! The concern is, will the all-new RS6 have what it takes to bring down the competition?

Well, let's first find out by checking out the statistics. Beginning with the RS6, it's powered by the same 4-litre twin-turbo V8 as in the past, but the power has been dialled up, and it now produces a fantastic 630hp and 850Nm of torque! This power is sent out to all four wheels via an 8-speed automated gearbox, however, the cars and truck is the heaviest in this line-up, tipping the scales at 2,090 kg! It's also the most costly automobile here, with a price tag of around ₤ 113,000.

Along with it, we have the BMW. It's loading a 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 under the bonnet, which is good for 625hp and 750Nm. Power is sent to all four wheels through an 8-speed torque converter transmission, and it weighs in at 1,865 kg. It's also a little more affordable than the RS6, at around ₤ 111,000.

Then lastly we have the AMG. It's in fact the least powerful vehicle here, with its 4-litre twin-turbo V8 putting down 612hp and 850Nm. Power is sent out to all 4 wheels via a 9-speed multi-clutch transmission, and it tips the scales at 1,950 kg. It's the least expensive cars and truck in this line-up, too, costing around ₤ 106,000.

So will the most powerful automobile win it? Or will the BMW's extraordinary launch system move it to triumph? There's just one way to find out … LET'S RACE!

      We all knew the new rs6 would be slower than e63s and m5 comp. Just audi fanboys using excuses. Glad to see it comfirmed

    For a car that weighs just over 2 Tons, that RS6 performance launches like a slingshot. Holy crap!

    1. MegaUnavailableusern Avatar

      Maybe because weight helps with launching??

      ​@MegaUnavailableusernhelps with traction, not with launching

    4. MegaUnavailableusern Avatar

      @SpiderShott Which is a BIG part of launching, just check the track hawk off the line. But clearly this RS6 has a better LC than the other 2 cars.

    5. ambid123 Avatar

      @MegaUnavailableusern It really doesn’t, hp/weight ratio is the biggest factor for accelerating.

    I would almost say matt is one of the best, or even the best drag racer in England currently. Because of the amount of practice he gets from all the drag races. His reaction 🏁is spot on!!!

    Honestly, no matter how better the newer ones of these 3 cars are gonna be. The fact is those 3 are all the BMW, Mercedes or Audi you ever gonna need! The absolute best from the current technology and engineering. I am not ready to say bye to these incredible machines.

    I’m an M5 guy all day but that Audi launch was something to admire lol

    1. TALIYY Avatar

      Same but i think it just comes down to driver. When matt drives the M5 he gets the best launch

      Gotta admit that Audi’s launch was almost as impressive as 911’s launch and it’s saying something

      @Timothey Demchenko i mean 911 does 10.2 man, 1 second difference is a lot

      @Angel Manuel A. Z. I meant in terms of consistency. M5’s launch is also impressive, but it lacks consistency

    5. Angel Manuel A. Z. Avatar
      Angel Manuel A. Z.

      @Timothey Demchenko M5 CS solved that to be fair, the best M5 out there vs the best RS6 out there should’ve been the perfect race, but normal M5 and M5 comp sometimes run into launch problems, as you said, consistency

  10. Hari Avatar

    that M5 is legitimately an automobile masterpiece.

      Indeed ntm this is the old platform as well the next gen M5 will be out in about a year or so which will be their true competitor

      The competition is the equivalent to the S and the Audi performance another bigger M5 would get out of the league

    2. SadKing Avatar

      Audi has such a start due to the fact that it has 100 more torque than the M5. But the M5, with its 625 horsepower and 750 torque, proved to be worthy!

      Sorry audi is king at launches out of the 3 next to porsche. However on the roll the BMW an benz are all underrated power figures, audi is pretty much on par with stated numbers which once again proves audis superiority at puttin power down. On even playing field audi is superior quattro awd. Far more capable company. By the way audi r8 v10 plus takes care of any bmw. And with an honest 610hp a supercar indeed. 0-60 in 2.6 secs an quarter mile 10.6s proven many times. Now overall faster car audi an bmw doesnt come close to mercedes. Amg one hypercar, amg gt black series.

      @Lauren Arch Everyone is talking how the audi haves more torque, no one says anything about the almost 400kg weight difference.

      Can’t complain that’s a pretty straight forward gearbox. 8 speed torque converter. Mainly focusing on comfort shifts,heck even rolls Royce uses that

      @Alexander Au Fr though rather still interesting this race included all the recent gens of both the merc and gen M5 is about a year away that will be their true competitor

      @mike walling True it launches great. And thats about it. Around a Track there is 0 Chance that it’s quicker.

    Wow, the drone shots are amazing! I’d like to see similar captures in new drag races!

  17. DRGVRP_Dashcam Avatar

    I can’t wait to see a drag race with the rs7 performance bc it will be lighter so it might perform better and the rs6 performed amazing

  18. Nimish Avatar

    That Audi is impressive. I was in shock during first drag race. Like, it literally jumped 5 meters ahead of that M5. Insane launch.
    But still, That M5 for me. Best.

    👏🏿👏🏿👏🏿👏🏿👏🏿This has probably been the closest Audi, BMW & Merc have ever been. S/O to Audi for finally brining out the top of the range of their RS cars. Thank you Carwow, this race really had me on the edge of my seat…and yea, it’s true that BMW lies about their performance figures for sure!! 😁 #AmgFanBoy

    I’d really love to see the RS3 performance go up against the new BMW M2
