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.
