In Daniel Abt's (yes, that Daniel Abt) latest YouTube video, he pits the two super wagons against each other. Thankfully, there are English subtitles for those who don't speak German.

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="62021"] words: Bill, photo: carwow As electric vehicle become more and more prevalent with the driving community, you will probably see more of these drag races.

This Tesla Model X is not a Plaid but rather the 778 hp performance Dual Motor. The hero in this race has...

[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?...

Petrol vs. Electric Drag Race: Audi RS 6 vs. Tesla Model 3 Performance

While the rivalry may not be age-old, petrol vs. electric is one that has taken the front seat with authority these last few years. Given we're less than 48 hours out from the launch of the new Audi e-tron GT, we've stumbled across this video to remind us that Audi's current product offering also sports some of the best internal combustion cars on the market as well. With the immediate torque of an electric motor and no need for anything like spooling up a turbocharger, electric cars like ...

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="54688"] words: Bill, video: DragTime This is the first video I've seen of an RS Q8 drag racing and it's against a Lamborghini Urus and a Tesla Model X P100D Ludicrous.

Video of the Day: Lexus LFA vs Audi R8 V10 Spyder Drag Race

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="52111"] words: Bill, video: Lovecars I remember when the Lexus LFA came onto the scene. On the forums (admittedly a Volkswagen/Audi forum), it was derided by most but loved by some. But who really couldn't at least like a V10 beast? Well...I think most of us here would love another V10 beast instead. An Audi R8 V10 Spyder is lined up against the LFA and in this drag race between the Banana and the Grape, who do you think will win? Watch b...

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="50418"] words: Bill, photo: carwow Mat is up to it again and this time, it's an Audi Sport family feud. He puts the RS Q8 up against an Audi V10. It's not a V10 plus but it's had some work on it to put out the power of a plus. How will twin turbo go against naturally aspirated? I think you may know the answer but do you?

Video of the Day: AMG GT 63S vs Audi RS 7

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="48571"] words: Bill, video: carwow You know the drill by now with carwow...drag race, rolling drag, and brake test from 70mph. The AMG has more power, more torque, and it sounds pretty darn good. The RS 7 is down in hp, torque, is slightly lighter, and sounds muted but it's also £50,000 less than the AMG. Plus I think it looks a lot better, in my humble opinion. [gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="48572"] How will our h...

Drag Race: Audi R8 vs Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid

[words: Bill Cho, video: Autocar] Another day, another drag race. This time the guys over at Autocar dragged an Audi R8 V10 against the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid.
