Video of the Day: Audi RS 3 vs Audi RS 3 vs Audi RS 3

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="80828"] words: Bill, photo: carwow No, my fingers didn't stutter while typing out the title. Mat Watson from carwow loves pitting Audi against other OEMs but this time, he brought all three generations of the RS 3. He couldn't get his hands on a MK III hatchback so the sedan version would have to do. So how do they stack up against one another? They all have the 2.5L 5-cylinder but the MK I has 340 hp/354 lb-ft and weighs 3,472 lbs, the MK ...

Video of the Day: Audi S8 vs Porsche Panamera Turbo S

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="78991"] words: Bill, photo: carwow I've always called the Audi S8 the Executive Muscle Car and the current iteration is just that and more. Mat puts it up against its corporate sibling, the Porsche Panamera Turbo S. Very similar cars so how do they stack up against each other? The Audi has a twin turbo 4L V8 with 571hp but weighs a hefty 4900lbs. The Porsche also has a twin turbo 4L V8 but it has 630hp and weighs a slim 4600lbs. The outcome...

Video of the Day: Audi R8 RWD Versus Audi R8 quattro…on a Ski Slope

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="78666"] words: Bill, photo: carwow So this is different...we've had plenty of Videos of the Day with Mat Watson from carwow and our favorite cars but we've never seen anything like this. Mat takes an R8 RWD coupe and pits it against an R8 Spyder AWD on an indoor ski slope. At first, both R8s are equipped with summer tires and you can just imagine the results. However, they soon switch to winter tires and mayhem ensues. Ultimately, this rath...

Video of the Day: Audi quattro 20V vs Audi quattro S1 E2 vs Audi Sport quattro vs Audi RS2 Avant vs Audi S2 coupe

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="75528"] words: Bill, photo: carwow I'm voting this as the Video of the Year. What a lineup! Mat Watson and carwow are celebrating 45 years of the Audi 5-cylinder by lining up legends for a drag race: Audi quattro vs Audi S1 E2 vs Audi Sport quattro vs Audi RS2 Avant vs Audi S2 coupe. Be sure to turn up the volume to 11 when the cars race because the sound is phenomenal. So is this worthy of Video of the Year? Check it out below and make the dec...

Video of the Day: Audi RS 3 vs Audi S8

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="75068"] words: Bill, photo: carwow The Executive Muscle Car versus the Scrappy Kid...biturbo V8 versus turbo 5-cylinder...571hp vs 400hp. If you just look at the numbers, the S8 is the clear winner but what about real world? Bonus is watching the huge S8 doing donuts; it's fantastic. Oh and by the way, Audi Club is giving away a 2023 Audi RS 3 in the Audi Club Fall Sweepstakes! Buy your entries HERE and watch the video below. Who will win?...

Video of the Day: Audi RS e-tron GT vs Audi RS Q e-tron

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="74583"] words: Bill, photo: carwow Mat from carwow takes on the surprisingly huge Audi RS Q e-tron Dakar (driven by Emil Bergkvist) in an Audi RS e-tron GT. I say surprisingly huge because I've only seen the RS Q e-tron by itself or against other similarly sized vehicles. It looks like to came straight from the movie Aliens. Will it be Game Over, man! for Mat and the RS e-tron GT? It's also interesting to hear the RS Q e-tron. Who will win...

Video of the Day: 2023 Audi RS 3 vs 1985 Audi Sport quattro S1

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="73419"] words: Bill, photos: carwow This is the drag race of your dreams. Mat Watson takes on a former Walter Röhrl/Stig Blomqvist-driven 1985 Audi Sport quattro S1 in a 2023 Audi RS 3...legendary 5 cylinder vs modern 5 cylinder. The stats: 1985 500hp, 354 ft-lb torque, 2400lbs vs 2023 400hp, 369 ft-lb torque, 3473 lbs. Just looking at those make you think that the outcome of the drag race would be a known quantity but... Enjoy the race...

Video of the Day: BMW M240i vs Audi RS 3 vs AMG CLA 45 Drag Race

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="70972"] words: Bill, video: carwow Mat Watson once again pits our favorite manufacturer against its German rivals. Driving a BMW M240i, he drags against an Audi RS 3 and an AMG CLA 45 S. It's a battle of 6 cylinder vs 5 cylinder vs 4 cylinder and a battle against premium German luxury subcompacts. All participants seem to have disparaging remarks about the RS 3 so how well will our hero fare against its AWD rivals? Watch below. [embed]ht...

Video of the Day: Audi R8 V10 Performance vs RS e-tron GT vs RS 6 Avant vs RS Q8 vs RS 5 vs RS 3

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="68425"] words: Bill, photo: carwow I don't remember ever seeing a drag race lineup like this before. May Watson from carwow pits the Audi R8 V10 Performance against the RS e-tron GT, Rs 6 Avant, RS Q8, RS 5 Sportback, and the new RS 3 Sportback. If you are familiar with Mat when he does a comparison test, they do a drag race, a rolling race , and a brake test fro 100mph. The drag races are entertaining with a familiar result if you've seen ...

Video of the Day: Audi RS Q8 vs Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="67811"] words: Bill, photo: carwow American brute versus German elegance...raw power versus refined power...supercharged 710hp V8 versus twin-turbo 600hp V8. Mat Watson and his Spanish cohort go head-to-head with Jeep's brawny bruiser and Audi's executive super SUV. This RS Q8 may look familiar because it took on a *stifles laughter* Dacia Duster in a previous Video of the Day. Mat takes both through the normal routine: 1/4 mile drag, a rol...

Video of the Day: Audi RS Q8 vs Dacia Duster

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="66413"] words: Bill, video: carwow Ok...this is one of the oddest comparisons we've featured on our Video of the Day series. Mat Watson from carwow pits a $143,000 Audi RS Q8 against a $25,000 Dacia Duster. Strange comparison but is it really? The Dacia had the advantage of, well, being cheap so the presenters were not afraid of damages costing too much if they wrecked it but were timid when it came to the RS Q8. The RS Q8 was also on street tir...

Video of the Day: A Family Affair – Lamborghini Urus vs Porsche Cayman GT4 vs Audi TT RS vs Volkswagen Golf R

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="63927"] words: Bill, video: carwow The lyrics to Sly and The Family's Family Affair was going through my wind when I saw the lineup to this peculiar drag race: Lamborghini Urus, Porsche Cayman GT4, Audi TT RS, and Volkswagen Golf R. It is a family affair with all these brands under the Volkswagen tent and Mat brings them all together. An unusual lineup when you think of the V8 SUV, a 6 cylinder RWD sports car, a 5 cylinder AWD, and a 4 cylinder...

Video of the Day: Audi RS e-tron GT vs AMG E63 S Drag Race

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="63850"] words: Bill, video: carwow.com ICE versus Electric Mat Watson and Carwow are back and this time he is bringing the heat. In this corner, the AMG E63 S and the opposite (in more ways than one), our hero, the Audi RS e-tron GT. Mat always tries to be in the car that he thinks will win and boasted that no Audi RS vehicle has won against the E63 S. Does this bode well for the RS e-tron GT? Watch below and find out.

Video of the Day: Audi RS e-tron GT vs Audi R8 V10

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="62728"] words: Bill, video: carwow As the ICE era draws down for our beloved Audi, the electric one emerges and produces the new King of Audi, the RS e-tron GT. We can only imagine what is in store for us as the future gets closer.Mat Watson from carwow gives us a glimpse of the future versus the past when he takes on a pre-facelift Audi R8 V10 against the new hotness, the Audi RS e-tron GT. If you're not familiar with carwow, we've featured t...

Video of the Day: Audi e-tron vs Honda Civic Type R vs BMW X4 M40d Drag Race

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="61961"] words: Bill, photo: carwow Ok this has to be one of the oddest assortments of vehicles to ever drag race. First up is the Audi e-tron. Not exactly a speedster you want to put up against the next contender: the Honda Civic Type R. Finally, the BMW X4 M40d. Electric AWD SUV versus ICE FWD sedan versus diesel AWD SUV. The e-tron isn't the S model, it's the heaviest by far, and people don't drag them because...well because who would?...

Video of the Day: Audi RS e-tron GT vs Porsche Taycan Turbo vs Tesla Model S Performance

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="61522"] words: Bill, video: carwow A couple of weeks ago, we featured Chris Harris comparing the Audi RS e-tron GT against the petrol-powered BMW M5 CS...a battle between new and old. Today, carwow is back to the future with an epic drag race between the electric Audi RS e-tron GT, the Porsche Taycan Turbo, and the Tesla Model S Performance. We've seen the Model S in plenty of drag race videos beating the pants off traditional ICE-powered vehic...

Video of the Day: Audi C5 vs C6 vs C7 vs C8 RS 6 Avants

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="60194"] words: Bill, video: carwow Let me just preface this by saying there are no losers here. Mat Watson and his team from carwow seem to know what lies at the center of my heart...the RS 6 Avant in any generation. Here he pits the latest to its older relatives and while we would like to say we know what the results would be, there might be a surprise in the mix. Enjoy the video.

Video of the Day: Audi RS e-tron GT 0-60MPH and 1/4 Mile Test

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="55442"] words: Bill, photo: carwow We’ve featured Mat Watson from carwow many times as he drag races many different Audi vehicles against stiff competition but in this video, he’s all alone in the Audi RS e-tron GT. With it being still a prototype, he’s not allowed to show the interior aside from the seats nor can he show the trunk nor the frunk. What he can show you is the undeniable power of this super e-tron. Enjoy the video below....

Video of the Day: AMG A45 S vs Audi RS 6 Avant

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="54530"] words: Bill, video: carwow An odd pair to drag since the AMG is a turbo four cylinder and the RS 6 is a twin-turbo V8 but Mat from carwow has a reason. You see, the yellow AMG is his daily driver and he's going to replace it with the Audi RS 6 Avant...good choice, Mat. The driver in the RS 6 is his girlfriend. I don't know what her driving pedigree is but it's probably not as good as Mat's. Normally, I don't spoil the results of a test ...
