Need help buying your next car? Click and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!
It's time for an almighty Audi showdown! We've brought together the most expensive Audi saloon, the S8, to take on the most expensive Audi estate, the RS6!
These two powerhouses are going head-to-head over the quarter-mile, and we think it's going to be incredibly close! Under the skin there are a number of similarities... They're both powered by a 4-litre twin-turbo V8, they both produce 800Nm of torque, and they both come with Quattro all-wheel-drive!
However, there's one key difference... While the the S8 produces 571hp, the RS6 manages to put down 600hp!
So what do you think, surely the RS6 will edge it, right? Or could the ultra-luxurious (and slightly more expensive) saloon snatch it? There's only one way to find out... LET'S RACE!

  • This guy is so predictable with his sour puss attitude towards Audi. I have the Audi S8 plus and my wife has the BMW Alpina B7. Best of both worlds. Nothing against Mercedes. Mercedes never really get our attention when it comes to looks and most importantly the drive itself.

  • Another much awaited race. Both are very good. #AudiS8 #AudiRS6

  • The new RS6 has lost every single drag race I've seen on the internet. Disappointing as Audi seems to not care about performance as its sibling company, Porsche for instance with whom it shares the same engines and platforms but less performance. Ughhh

  • The RS6 has 592HP

  • So glad I didn’t go with an RS6. Mercedes and BMW both did a better job in this class.

  • When drag races are unclear you maybe need to swap cars and sides of the track a bit more to check.

  • As cool as these are I would buy a 2017 S8 Plus or RS7 Performance. Much cheaper and a large chunk of depreciation is already accounted for. I also think the previous S8 looks much better than the new one, which looks too blingy.

    Greg SGreg S4 ימים לפני
  • The RS6 has 30 more hp, 200 kg lighter and yet at best it is as fast as the S8 in a drag race, makes me think the S8 power is underrated

  • This just makes me mad. If you wanna build a quiet car then go for a fucking hybrid or full electric shit box but don’t Bild an rs6 with stats of a supercar and then give it a fucking SOFTLIMITER. WTF

  • I would say, it was to close to blame the car for anything. In this case the drivers are the factors. What I don't like, you do things 3 times, but the drivers wont swap the cars.
