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

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!

    Interesting that the S4 has 60% more torque than the RS4 yet is slower in a rolling drag race. A good demonstration of how power is important and torque is relatively meaningless when it comes to outright performance. I suspect with launch control and DSG the RS4 would have opened up quite a gap on the S4.

    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

    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.
