Drag Races:
The Urus won all three of them. In the final race, it took 11.5 seconds, the GT4 11.8 seconds, the TT-RS 11.9 seconds, and the Golf R 12.7 seconds

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.
