Audi RS6 Performance Tries To Beat 2017 Nissan GT-R Again And Again

Since all-wheel drive systems do a lot more than just help a car take off the line with limited traction loss, it’s about time we saw how Audi‘s super estate matches up with the new GT-R when the surface they’re racing on isn’t dry.

Regardless of how impressive the Audi can be, on paper it’s the Nissan that’s actually quicker by almost a full second in the 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph) sprint. To realize just how staggering that is, imagine that the 605 PS (597 HP), 750 Nm (553 lb-ft) RS6 Performance will hit 100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds, whereas the 570 PS (562 HP) 2017 GT-R needs about 2.8 seconds.

That being said, if you weren’t all that impressed with the RS6 before, seeing this flagship Performance-spec model take on against one of the fastest-accelerating cars in the world might just make a fan out of you.

    i hope the new gen GTR ruins everyone, again

    The hell kind of lame race is this? Kudos to the GT-R for beating a station wagon in a 1/16th-mile drag race.

  • Matt

    On a half mile venue the RS6 would win… the GT-R’s trump card is its launch.

    • Kaisuke971

      This comment would’ve made sense if it wasn’t an RS6… It’s basically the same type of car but for families, with less extreme performances. The GT-R would take it in any kind of way possible.

  • RS6 Performance Wagon Lover

    The RS6 is still a better all-rounder.

  • Jim Ragland

    Scratching my head….

  • General. Koofta

    Gee, I think the pavement was too wide for this race. Come over to my driveway next time!

    The Audi is so sexy. And the Nissan is still not good looking one never will.
