Audi RS5 vs RS3 vs S4 vs old RS4: Drag Race *Closer than you think*

  • Published on Jan 11, 2020
  • You're getting a two-for-one with our newest drag race! The Audi RS3, RS5 Sportback, S4 and RS4 B7 (aka the old model) are all going head-to-head! In one corner, can the new RS3 - powered by a 2.5-litre engine with 400hp - defeat the RS5 and its 2.9-litre, twin-turbo V6 with 450hp? In the other, it's old vs new as the RS4 B7 (and its 420hp, 4.2-litre V8) takes on the 347hp DIESEL S4, with a 3.0-litre V6! Who'll come out on top? Join Mat and see!

    They so need to update the highway code for braking distances, I know these cars have amazing brakes compared to most but there stopping distance shows how much technology has changed

    Absolutely gutted they gone diesel in new s4 (2017 s4 B9 owner), hate diesels and unfortunately Rs4 is out my price range and s3 is too small for 2 kids haha. C43 me thinks. Would love to see petrol B9 against this new diesel to sway me lol. (P.S yous can borrow mine)

    I thought the RS3 comes equipped with their full Quattro AWD system..not an Haldex variant in their S3/A3 configurations?
    When did Audi make that demode? 2020? I'm sure the price wasn't dtopprd! Not good.

    Supercharger the rs4 and will blow all of them out of the water. It's the only naturally aspirated engine out of all of them.

    I was On Motorway had an Old Audi up my arse didn’t know which at the time, Doing 70mph car in front of me won’t move over, when they did, I booted it , In my remapped 2017 focus ST , this Audi was on my Arse I thought I’d have dropped it by about 100mph , at 120 mph Audi still on my Arse I thought fuck🤔 he can’t have that much more than me ? I moved to middle lane this Audi went roaring past , I thought WTF . Then I see it was an RS4 estate ,
    I was like 💁‍♂️ Okay !!
    That settle s that then🤓

    this is exactly the reason why hp is still more important then torque.
    and that rs4 did not have launchcontrol or a fancy dual clutch or high tech gearbox and still kept up with the 700nm tractor. 👌

    When it's Audi Quattro, and it got a Haldex system, you need to say it. Can't say it enough! FAKE QUATTRO!

    For me how good the RS4 performs shows how Audi have lost their way..... Very dull bunch of cars in comparison (5 pot engine aside)
