Audi R8 vs Quattro Rally Car: DRAG RACE

Who’s ready for a two-way Audi showdown!

Mat’s got his hands on the Audi R8 V10 Performance Spyder, and he’s facing off against a 1985 Audi Sport Quattro S1 Group B rally car!!

Let’s take a look at how these Audis compare. Starting with the R8, it’s powered by a mid-mounted 5.2-litre naturally-aspirated V10 that can put down 620hp & 580Nm of torque. It drives all four wheels, and it tips the scales at just under 1,700kg. It’s also pretty pricey, with a starting price of £162,000!

But trust us, that’s nothing compared to the rally car, which has been insured to a value of £1,700,000!! In terms of power, its engine is certainly smaller than the R8’s, with a 2.1-litre 5-cylinder turbo under the bonnet that’s good for 500hp & 480Nm. It’s also equipped with all-wheel drive, though, and it’s certainly lighter than the R8, weighing in at 1,090kg.

So the R8 is more powerful, but will the difference in weight push the Quattro rally car to victory? There’s only one way to find out – LET’S RACE!
