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: German Muscle Versus American Muscle

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="73470"] words: Bill, photo: carwow What happens when you pit a mid engine C8 Corvette Stingray V8 against a mid engine Audi R8 V10 and a rear engine Porsche 911 twin turbo flat 6? A fun drag race. The R8 is a Rear Wheel Series one so obviously it's rear wheel drive as are the Corvette and 911. So will American brawn take out the Germans? You may or may not be surprised. Either way, it'll be fun. Watch the video below. [embed]https://yout...

[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: New Audi RS 3 Sedan vs Audi RS 6 Avant

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="70221"] words: Bill, photo: Archie Hamilton Racing The new RS 3 looks to be a blast and we can't wait for it to finally hit our shores but we can watch others play with them like Archie Hamilton. He pits the new RS 3 sedan against the Mother of All Bombs, the Audi RS 6 Avant. You would think that it would be a slaughter but you might be wrong. Ok...don't want to give anything away but I think one of the drivers may have been holding back but the...

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.

Video of the Day: Walkaround Tour of the 2022 Audi Club Sweepstakes Car, 1985 Audi Quattro

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="67893"] We've given away some pretty exciting cars in the Audi Club Sweepstakes including the long-awaited Audi RS 6 Avant but this is the 1st time we looked back on Audi heritage. George took some time on Sunday to head over to the garage and give us a walk around tour of the car. Now a lot of people are familiar with the iconic Quattro but George pulls facts out of his head like he's reciting his own story. This car has an interesting histor...

[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 3 vs AMG A45 vs BMW M2 vs Porsche Cayman GTS vs Volkswagen Golf R

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="66579"] words: Bill, photo: carwow This is a fairly even matchup in today's drag race from carwow (with the exception of one). Four (AMG, VW), five (Audi), and six cylinders (BMW, Porsche) are represented as well as AWD (Audi, AMG, VW) and RWD (BMW, Porsche). Four of them are within 20hp of each other (RS 3 400hp, A45 420hp, M2 410, GTS 400) with the lonely Volkswagen Golf R down 100hp from the AMG. How does the RS 3 stack up against its co...

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...

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="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...
