Watch This 950-HP Audi RS7 Breach The 200 MPH Mark On The Autobahn Like It’s No Big Deal

At around 206 mph, the car seems to hit a speed limiter even though it seems to have a lot of grunt left

The folks at ‘AutoTopNL’ got hold of a tuned Audi RS7 and took it for a spin at the Autobahn. They have tested the same RS7 in the past as well, but back then it was tuned to make just 750 horses. This time, it makes 200 horses more and goes all the way up to 200 mph before losing breath. Care for some cargasm?

Watch A Porsche Panamera Take On A BMW M5 CS, An AMG E63, And An Audi RS6 In A Drag Race

All the cars are powered by a V-8 engine and make north of 2,500 horses combined!

Mat Watson and his team from ’Carwow’ got four cars to the drag strip for an all-German drag race. The contenders included the Audi RS6, the BMW M5 CS, the Mercedes-AMG E63, and the Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid. All the cars feature V-8 engines and two turbochargers. The Porsche goes in the races with a slight advantage, thanks to the electric motor assisting the engine and helping it make the most horses here. But, it’s a double-edged sword as the motor and batteries make it the heaviest. Which car do you think will dominate the races?

Audi lets Ken Block hoon in the Ultimate Audi Rally Car - a 700-Horsepower Group S Prototype that never raced

Can An Old-School Subaru Impreza WRX STI Hold A Candle To An Audi RS3 On The Drag Strip?

The Impreza and RS3 are very different beasts and that’s what makes this a series of fun races

Jamie from Officially Gassed – OG organized a fun drag race that had two very different contenders take on each other. It was a Stage 1 Audi RS3 up against a stripped-out Subaru Impreza WRX STI. The Subaru is an old-school car with a manual gearbox, whereas the RS3 comes with all the modern tech and a lightning-quick DSG gearbox. The Audi makes slightly more power than the Subaru, but it is also over 900 pounds heavier. Which car do you think will get the win here?

Watch This 3,900-Horsepower Drag Race Between a Nissan GT-R, Audi R8, And a McLaren 720S

Can the Audi R8 and the McLaren 720S dethrone the mighty Godzilla?

High-horsepower drag races are always a thrill to watch. Even more so to participate in, but instead, I am sitting here writing about it. In any case, it’s always interesting to see which drivetrain layout is best at a certain power level, and once again, Carwow happily obliges. In this case, we have three cars with over 1,000 horsepower that differ in the way they deliver power to the ground – a Nissan GT-R, Audi R8, and a McLaren 720S.

Of course, a lot of that is thanks to the bike, but we’ll get to that in a second. We have a quarter-mile, half-mile, and a third-mile roll-race. It’s a clash between two German supercars and a modified motorcycle and the results might surprise you.

A 733 HP Audi TTRS dared to challenge a 1,000 HP Godzilla, and the results are shocking

Drag races seem to never get old. They are the ultimate straight-line performance test for any car. A quarter-mile drag race shows not only how quick a car is, but also how well it puts the power down. With this in mind, the YouTube channel Officially Gassed is giving us an epic drag race, between two highly modified vehicles – a Litchfield-tuned Nissan R35 GT-R and an Audi TTRS modified by Awesome GTI.

2021 Audi R8 LMS GT2 Exclusive Color Edition

Six bright exterior shades make the GT2 look sexier than it already is!

You don’t really see Audi come up with such stuff, but the automaker has revealed a ‘Color Edition’ of its most powerful product - the R8 LMS GT2. But, in all fairness, it deserves to be pampered with such appearance editions, considering it is the German automaker’s flagship race car. Audi is offering it in six different exterior shades, each one looking better than the other. There are no changes made to the cabin or the drivetrain, but you can’t expect much with a premium price increase of just $13,000.

Audi Ditches Formula E, Chooses LMDh and the Dakar Rally Instead

Audi Ditches Formula E, Chooses LMDh and the Dakar Rally Instead

The German automaker thinks its job is done in Formula E and will move funds towards a new Dakar program and a Le Mans return

German luxury brand Audi will, in a couple of years’ time, be back doing two things that it does really well: go fast on dirt and go fast in really long circuit races. In other words, Audi announced that the 2020-2021 season of Formula E will be the last for Audi as a factory team, the money spent keeping the Audi Sport Team Abt Schaeffler operation at the sharp end of the world’s best-well-known EV racing series being redirected to a couple of new and very interesting projects.

Thus, Audi is already developing an electric SUV that it will race in the Dakar Rally as early as 2022 and, then, a return to the 24 Hours of Le Mans and, presumably, the FIA World Endurance Championship (FIA WEC) is scheduled for 2023 or 2024 when Audi Sport will show up with an LMDh (Le Mans Daytona-Hybrid) prototype on the grid.

The result is a massively creative set of pictures that bring a nod back to the sheer madness of Audi’s rally car and the huge balls of those who got to drive it.
