The Audi RS6 takes on the Mercedes-AMG GT 4-Door and the Porsche Taycan Turbo
Drag race time!
Between sportiness and practicality, some people don't choose. So today you can enjoy a new drag race between three German sports cars. And what's rare is that this drag race is not organised by Carwow, but by the Swedish team of auto motor & sport.
On one side we have the famous Audi RS6. This discreet yet powerful station wagon hides under its bonnet an imposing 4.0-litre V8 developing 600 PS and 800 Nm of torque. All this power is sent to all four wheels via the Quattro all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Opposite it is the Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4-Door Coupé. This more practical variant of the radical AMG GT has a 4.0-litre V8 producing 639 PS and 900 Nm of torque. The car features a nine-speed automatic transmission with four-wheel drive. It weighs 2160 kg compared to 2280 kg for the Audi.
An electric car will also compete in this race against these two ICE vehicles. It is the Porsche Taycan Turbo. The saloon has two electric motors developing a combined 680 PS and 850 Nm of torque. The Porsche is naturally the heaviest of the lot with 2461 kg on the scale.
