Top Gear: Audi SQ7 vs Ford Focus RS Drag Race

words: Bill Cho, video: Top Gear UK

SQ7 vs. Focus RS drag race…did I read that correctly? 

My morning routine is to surf the web for interesting Audi tidbits and this classifies as interesting. Top Gear’s YouTube channel just released this unusual drag race video. Soccer Mom vs. Boy Racer is what flashed through my mind as I read the description.

Pictured above is the mighty Audi SQ7 TDI…something we don’t have in the States and may never get. This 5,004lb 435hp 4.0L supercharged biturbo V8 behemoth seems to be an unlikely drag competitor against the 3,434lb 350hp 2.3L EcoBoost 4 cylinder hot hatch.

Both are AWD, both have 4 doors, and both have almost the identical 0-62 mph time but that’s pretty much the end of the similarities.

Watch the video to see the results. It may or may not surprise you.
