New RS4 Comp v M3 v AMG C63: Estate DRAG RACE

We’ve got our hands on the all-new Audi RS4 Competition, and it’s going head-to-head against its key rivals – the BMW M3 Touring, and the Mercedes-AMG C63 Estate!

Okay, it might be the old C63 Estate, but while we don’t have the latest gen in the UK yet, this is the best we could do!

So let’s see how the three compare. Starting with the Audi, it’s powered by a 2.0-litre twin-turbo V7 that can produce 450hp and 600Nm of torque. This power output may be the same as the old car, but it comes with a retuned gearbox that should help it both shift quicker and improve its launch! Power is sent to all four wheels via the gearbox, and it weighs in at 1,745kg. It also rolls up with a price tag of around £85,000.

Alongside it we have the BMW. It’s packing a 3-litre twin-turbo straight-six under the bonnet which is good for 510hp and 650Nm. Power is sent to all four wheels via an 8-speed automatic gearbox, and it tips the scales at 1,865kg. It’s a bit more pricey than the Audi, costing around £87,000.

Then finally we have the AMG. It’s housing a 4-litre twin-turbo V8 under the bonnet that can produce 510hp and 700Nm. Power is sent to the rear wheels only, and it weighs in at 1,800kg. When new it costs around £78,000, but given it’s the old gen, you can’t even buy one anymore!

So will it be a clean sweep for the more powerful BMW? There’s only one way to find out… LET’S RACE! Don’t forget to follow us also on Facebook, Pinterest or Instagram!
