So let me tell you about this car because it's actually my daily driver, it has a four liter twin turbo v8, with 600 horsepower and 800 newton meters of torque quattro, all wheel, drive and an eight speed automatic gearbox with launch control it weighs in at just Over two tons, though so it's fairly heavy and the price starts from 95 000 pounds so that recently revised m5 competition. It has a 4.4 liter twin turbo v8, with 625 horsepower and 750 newton meters of torque it's slightly lighter than this audi, but it's more expensive. One hundred and two thousand pounds it has an eight speed, automatic gearbox, all wheel, drive and launch control. Finally, then we come to the mercedes, so it has a four liter twin turbo v8, with 612 horsepower and 850 newton meters of torque. It has a nine speed, automatic gearbox with launch control and four wheel drive. It also weighs in at just under two tons and it costs just a smidge under a hundred thousand pounds now we're going to find out, which is the quickest over a quarter mile.

Why are you drag racing when it's wet like this? Well, we organize the cars and the race and the filming so we're gon na do it and they don't cancel formula one because of a bit of rain. Do they and it rains quite a lot in the uk, so here we are and before we race let's, do the obligatory car wow sound check? This is the arse sex that's. What our sex sounds like i stopped with that joke it's not funny, and neither is a soft limiter in an audi v8 let's see if that pinnable is any better go on rev up the m5 lad. That sounds better than this, even though i'm in this let's have a listen to the merc, it sounds like that's got a soft limiter as well it's a little bit fruity, though, which is good. One thing i want to show you is this: look. That is my average economy from when i drove here so 23 miles per gallon. Let'S see how much that drops by during this racing and now let's race let's.
Do it come on quattro it's, all about four wheel? Drive grip! This is your thing audi. This is your thing, oh and it did its thing so well, i can see nothing. I can see things now this hooked up. So how was that for you, bmw, my launch control flag came on, but i took off sideways, so that was interesting. How about the mercedes? The initial launch was pretty good, but then it seemed to spin up quite a bit and once we got into second gear, it started to pick up much better. You sound a little bit sad about it, mercedes i don't like losing. Well, you better get used to it, because this audi just hooks up in the wet i'm gon na, give you guys one more go because i'm, a sportsman quattro just hooks absolutely hot. This quattro system just hooks up in the wet it really does you know if it was in dry, this car would have come last. The bmw would have been first, but in the where this performs i mean that bmw, you have to have the traction control off. So what happens it just takes off sideways it's, not very good. How about the merc was that all right it launched all right, then the gearbox just completely brain farted and didn't want to give me any power. So you guys had gone down the road by the time it decided to get going again. I'D, like another rematch, i'm, still not happy with this i'm gon na give you one more go, because i think the outcome is going to be the same i'm loving this.
Oh, your beauty, my goodness! So how was your launch? Bmw? You just can't put the power down really interesting race because, as you said before, normally the rs6 became beaten here, but bit of rain, as it often does in the uk and it's different merc. Was your start all right, this time, yeah the launch is mega it's. Just it can't get the power down once it's rolling it's a monster, but until we get the power going forwards, it doesn't really matter. Go audi. You'Ve won a drag race. Finally, against these other german beasts, so then what exactly happened? Well, the audi did the standing quarter mile in 11.6 seconds, the mercedes mg took 12.3 seconds and the bmw came third with a time of 12.4 seconds. Just so you know in previous races in the dry. Both the m5 competition and e63s have managed to do the standing quarter mile in just 11.1 seconds. So all you fanboys of bmw and amg, you can stand down no need to turn into keyboard warriors now. We'Re going rolling race from 50 miles an hour with the cars in auto comfort, relaxed setting. Here we go i'm gon na count. It in three two one go kick down, come on, kick down, it's a different story now isn't it that murk has just burgered off i'm. Well, beat there's, no point even being in this. From my point of view, i saw two other german cards disappear. I don't know what happened between you.
Two mercedes. Did he win? That win is an understatement. This car is a monster. It just went now. We have a rolling race yet again from 50 miles an hour, but this time in our sportiest settings and the gearboxes in manual starting off in third so i'm, going to count it in three two one go come on. This picked up good, actually better than the bmw, but now the bmw is hooding it. What happened to the mercedes? Now the mercedes is coming we're running out of runway, oh god and it's, where oh, he wants to break interesting there. The mercedes seemed to go and this audi went ahead at the bmw, which was last at picking up, but then the bmw came through and mercedes like faltered. What happened in the mercedes yeah? It was all good – and i pulled for fourth when i bridged the top of third and it just delayed for a couple of tenths and then that's when the beamer went ahead of me and you didn't accidentally just kind of hit the limiter. No, definitely not. Unless, when it shifted the cut made it rev up to the limit, i might need to pull a little bit earlier, always pull out a little bit sooner than later, just to be on the safe side. Trust me well, i'm, going to give that to the bmw in second place of the audi. What do you very much like to do to get mercedes yeah? I definitely want to do it again.
Let'S. Do it again, three two one go that's more like it. The bmw picked it better that time can it get past. The mark i'll watch this play out from back here, oh okay, that was really interesting. So once again i was just a bystander but that merc seemed to go ahead, but the bmw was definitely catching until the bmw driver lost his bollocks. If there was another three four five hundred meters, i think i would have come. Do you know what you're better off doing that than going into the farmer's field and having to get a whole new and decide on the car win for the mercedes, then that time yeah? So i shifted up a few hundred revs earlier and it seemed to work. I was short shifting. I want that now we can have a break test from 70 miles an hour when we hit the line. Full emergency, stop it's gon na be fun in the wet. Where is the line? I can't see it. Oh here it is here we go come on. Oh, i hit a nice dry patch. Oh that was just so totally random. I could see a dry patch when i was braking and i thought i'll hook it when i hit that i was looking across at the bmw and there was no dry patches where it was breaking and if i look back at the mud there's a little one Where it was breaking so this test is not so much about the braking performance of the cars more about the amount of water on the track where you're doing the braking, but still it is what it is, and that goes to the mercedes.
