If you went back to the past couple of years and name two of the most popular cars Audi has come out with in recent time, then the two most common answers would have to be the Audi TT-RS and the Audi R8 V10.
And while it’s not really fair to compare the two cars – really, it’s not? – the folks over at Autocar who seemingly never run out of comparing cars decided to give it a whirl, just for the heck of it. So it stands, it’s the Audi TT RS taking on the Audi R8 V10 in two separate testing situations: one on a twisty test road and the other on a straight piece of road.
Surprisingly, the Audi TT RS did a whole lot better than we thought on the first test in spite of the glaring differences between the two car’s overall package. But when the second run began, then that’s when things went back to normal. The Audi TT RS is a fast car, but running it up against an Audi R8 V10 in an open road is far from what we’d call a competitive race.
