Watch The Audi RS5 And The Nissan GT-R Get Their Asses Whooped By A BMW M4 Competition!

This drag race shows that the BMW M4 Competition xDrive should never be taken for granted

Thomas and James from ‘Throttle House’ organized an all-wheel-drive drag race that had some big names racing against each other. The contenders included an Audi RS5, a BMW M4 xDrive, and a Nissan GT-R. On paper, the GT-R makes the most power, but will that translate to a clean sweep over its German counterparts?

The Godzilla Is The Most Powerful Of The Lot

In the drag race, the BMW M4 just shot off the line like a bullet. The Audi followed it whereas the GT-R was left behind. While the BMW stayed ahead of the pack, the Audi wasn’t able to keep up with the GT-R and ended up giving it its second position. In the end, the BMW M4 won the race, the Nissan GT-R came in second, and the Audi RS5 had to do with the last position.

Next up was the rolling race and all the cars got a good kickdown. However, it was the GT-R that took off like it had a rabid dog chasing it. It made both the other cars look like they didn’t know what they were doing. The BMW also kept at it and edged the Audi RS5 after a few seconds. The result of this race was the GT-R claiming the bragging rights and swapping its previous position with the M4, whereas the Audi had to be content with the last place.

There Was A Surprise Entrant!

Given how the Audi RS5 wasn’t giving the others any competition, the guys brought in the RS5-R!

In the drag race, the new entrant got the best start off the line. The GT-R was slow as before, while the M4 was second to start. However, the story after that was the same as the drag with the standard RS5. The M4 was quick to leave it in the dust, and so was the GT-R. Despite the steroids, the RS5-R still took an L here.
