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 vehicles but what can it do against the new Germans?
On paper, the RS e-tron GT has the least HP in the group (646), the Porsche with just a bit more (687), and the Tesla with gobs more (778). The Tesla is also cheaper by almost £42,000. So how did the the new Germans do against the powerful Tesla? You might be surprised. Watch below.
