As we’ve said before, factory versus tuning isn’t exactly a fair game. But since we’ll always be curious when it comes to performance, we’re bringing you this highly competitive drag race between a 661 HP Ferrari FF and a 700 PS MTM Audi RS6 – courtesy of GTboard.
Pretty much all GTboard races are done from a rolling start, and even though the RS6 (C6 model) jumped ahead slightly (probably because of driver reaction time) the less powerful yet lighter in weight FF roared back and took the lead.
And it made all of that look pretty easy, which is surprising because the MTM RS6 has more power and more torque. Unlike other rolling start races, this one is clear cut. Nothing went wrong for either car, the difference in acceleration is noticeable and we’re betting the FF’s faster 7 speed dual clutch gearbox had something to do with it.
Another theory is that the title of the video is misleading and the RS6 doesn’t really have 700 PS. Which is what some of the people in the comments section seem to (strongly) advocate.
The stock C6 Audi RS6 features a 5.0 liter V10 engine, producing 579 PS along with 650 Nm of torque, getting it from 0-100km/h (62mph) in 4.6 seconds. It’s slower gearbox and 2,100kg total weight were probably its downfall, despite the MTM power upgrade. The V12 powered FF, will reach 100km/h (62 mph) in just 3.7 seconds as soon as it leaves the factory.
