Audi R8 vs RSQ8: DRAG RACE!
Visit carwow to save money on your next car -
It’s time for a top-of-the-range Audi showdown!
As we all know, the R8 is the top sports car that Audi produces. We may not have the latest R8 V10 Plus here with us today (we’ve got the previous generation), but thanks to it having a stage 1 tune, it’ll produce identical stats to the Plus - 600hp & 580Nm!
As for the RSQ8, it’s the top-of-the-range Audi SUV, and it'll produce 600hp and 800Nm of torque from its 4-litre twin-turbo V8! But given that it weighs over 600kg MORE than the R8, is the result a foregone conclusion? Or will Mat's experience in drag races prove to be the deciding factor?!
There’s only one way to find out… LET’S RACE!
Thanks to Ben for joining us with his R8 -

    Try reving the engine in the gear being in neutral rather than park. That should stop the limmiter.

    It's incredible the RSQ8 at a whopping *5100lb* brakes as well as it does. Amazing job they did there. TBH it looks like the Q8 actually stopped *just* shorter based on the bumper. But, based on the wheel position it seems like the R8 is slightly shorter. It could just be how it looks in the video but that's how it looks to me--it seems like the Q8 has a shorter nose than the R8 making the difference.

    Frankly, the performance of the R8 was very pedestrian vis-a-vis the SUV.

    Isn't anticipating the hands dropping technically a false start? Surely all drivers should be reacting at the same time if you are to compare the cars, and their ability to launch, accurately. Matt basically confirmed he is cheating as we all knew he has been

    Forgetting the little black missile out of the window, I am impressed watching the numbers climb on the RSQ8 speedo!! Need a “real world” overtake a car doing 70 test
