words: Bill, video: CarWow
It’s been awhile since we visited our buddies over at CarWow and this time, it was a good visit. They put the new 911 Carrera 4S up against the GT-R Nismo, the BMW M850i, and the (*cough* our favorite *cough*) Audi R8 performance.
The 911 has a 3L turbocharged flat six with 450hp, the GT-R a 3.8L twin-turbo 600hp V6, the BMW M850i a 4.4L twin-turbo 520hp V8, and the (favorite) Audi R8 performance a NA 5.2L 620hp V10. All are AWD, all are automatic, and all are desirable (more so than others). Who will win the drag race? No spoilers here.
They also put the cars through a rolling drag and a brake test. How well did the Audi R8 performance do? Watch the video below.
