[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: An Audi RS 6 Avant Joins the Wasserschutzpolizei

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="68977"] words: Bill, photo: RNZOnline.com Germany has over 4,600 miles of navigable waterways and they have a special police force that patrols them; the Wasserschutzpolizei. They operate several different types of boats and they received a new one last week...only they didn't order it. In what police are calling a "driver error", the hapless operator had stopped next to the river to use the restroom. Afterwards, he somehow managed to drive in...

[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.

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...

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 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...

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...

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.

[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. We all have seen the Tesla Model S blow the doors off ICE competitors and now there's the Plaid edition doing 0-60 in 1.99 seconds and with 1,020hp, the competition is shaking. 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?...

[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: Nothing But Audi on the Ring

[gallery link="none" columns="1" size="full" ids="58701"] words: Bill, video: Stateside Super Cars There are two things I love about this video: it's nothing but Audi and there is no music soundtrack. There's nothing worse that annoying music when cars are on track...I'd rather listen to the music of squealing tires and throaty exhausts. In this video by Stateside Super Cars, you get to see many different Audi models from over the years take on the legendary Nurburgring...from a drifting C8 RS...

[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.

Audi aplenty but how about a Lamborghini? A Gallardo to be exact. There is no description to this YouTube video except for the 80 being a twin-turbo V8. It readily handles the AWD Gallardo. You have to give it the Lambo driver for having fun with his Gallardo...I mean if you could, wouldn't you? Enjoy the video below. [embe...
