The Italian Bull tries to beat down its German rivals on the drag stripby Sidd Dhimaan, on
Mat Watson and his team from ‘Carwow’ pit four very different vehicles against each other on the drag strip. The mix included a Lamborghini Urus, a Porsche Cayman GT4, an Audi TT-RS, and a Volkswagen Golf R. With the difference in size, shape, weight, and engine capacities, the race is quite unpredictable.
The Lambo Has A Distinct Advantage In Terms Of Specs
The Lamborghini Urus is powered by a 4.0-liter, twin-turbo V-8 engine that makes 650 horses and 627 pound-feet of torque (850 Nm).
Power is sent to all the wheels via an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
The Porsche Cayman GT4 comes with a 4.0-liter, flat-six naturally aspirated engine that puts out 420 horses and 310 pound-feet of torque (420 Nm).
Power is routed to the rear wheels exclusively via the famed seven-speed PDK.
The Audi TT RS features a 2.5-liter, five-cylinder turbocharged engine that generates 400 ponies and 354 pound-feet of twist (480 Nm).
It is paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox and an all-wheel-drive system.
As for the Golf R, it comes with a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder turbocharged engine that dishes out 320 horses and 310 pound-feet of oomph (420 Nm).
It is also mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox and an all-wheel-drive system.
The Urus weighs 4,848 pounds, making it significantly heavier than its rivals. The four-pot 3,419-pound Golf R is next in line, despite featuring the smallest engine. The Cayman GT4 and the TT-RS weigh the same – 3,197 pounds.
In the first standing drag race, the Urus got a pretty good start and stayed in the front all the way. The Audi and the Porsche fought till the end for the second position, but the latter seemed to have pipped it by the nose at the finish line. They raced again with the Porsche’s Traction Control on. It made a difference as it managed to get ahead of the Audi straight away. The result was the same this time, too. They raced yet again, just for the heck of it, and it didn’t make any difference whatsoever. Coming to the timings, the Urus took 11.5 seconds to complete the quarter-mile. The Cayman GT4 took 11.8 seconds, the Audi TT-RS took 11.9 seconds, and the Volkswagen Golf R took 12.7 seconds.
Next up was the rolling race from 50 mph in automatic mode and comfort setting. The Porsche had the best kickdown. The Polo also was surprisingly impressive at the start, but soon lost the plot. In the end, the Porsche won the race, followed by the Urus, the Audi, and the Volkswagen.
The next rolling race was from 50 mph in third gear and the sportiest setting. The Urus got back to its winning ways this time, but surprisingly, the Porsche came third. The Audi took its drag race revenge against its fellow German to claim the second position. The Polo, on the other hand, was just… there.
The final round was a brake test from 70 mph. The Audi TT-RS stopped in the distance, then it was the Golf R, then the Urus, and at last, the Cayman GT4.
