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!

    Marco JoosMarco JoosVor Monat
  • And yet the RS4 is still the one with the most character and the one most people would yearn for. New cars are so quick it's insane but I'll give up time on a drag strip or a track for the raw fury of that engine any day. Best Audi ever made in my books, but I'm biased I suppose.

  • Audi killed the S series with small diesels and fake exhaust systems. Totally ridiculous. I hope their strategy fails miserably.

  • dude, of course the RS5 won. It has 0-62mph in 3.9s. The RS3 has 4.1s , still great for such a little car and also that engine has huuuge tuning potencial (470-480hp easy with just a ecu tune or 510-530hp with a downpipe, intake and intercooler. Not mentioning I saw a lot of them with 700-800-1000hp , with turbo upgrades, injector and fuel pumps upgrade and forged parts of course). I would have liked to get a TT RS in the drag race, same RS3 engine, but it's a lighter car and with better aerodynamics too. 3.7s 0-62 , so it whould have won :) Peace.

  • Interesting comparison love the older RS4 looks and sounds great would be interesting to ha e it on a rolling road to see what it’s current BHP is as some of these had coke build up issues and power loss so could be at an unfair disadvantage
