YouTube channel carwow organized a drag race between the new BMW M4 Competition, Audi RS 5 and the outgoing generation Mercedes-AMG C 63 S. The coupes fought in a series of races from a standstill to 402 meters, then the reviewers conducted parallel starts on the move, and the final test was to evaluate the effectiveness of the brakes.
BMW M4 in the back of G82 – new; they took a rear-wheel drive version of the Competition with an 8-speed “automatic” for the test. Under the hood is a 510 horsepower in-line biturbo-six with a torque of 650 Nm. The Bavarian coupe weighs 1,730 kilograms and costs 76 thousand pounds.
Mercedes-AMG C 63 S will soon lose its 4.0-liter V8 and become a hybrid, but the coupe of the outgoing generation retains a 510-horsepower (700 Nm) gasoline turbo engine, uncontested rear-wheel drive and a 9-speed “robot”. The two-door weighs the same 1,730 kilograms and costs 77 thousand pounds.
The Audi RS5 has an all-wheel drive Quattro transmission, a V6 2.9 turbo engine (450 horsepower, 600 Nm of torque) and an 8-band “automatic”. Despite the four-wheel drive, Audi is 15 kilograms lighter than its competitors and costs 10-12 percent cheaper – from 67.5 thousand pounds sterling.
Quarter-mile runs The Audi RS 5 is more stable, but if the BMW M4 gets off to a good start, the Bavarian coupe will be the fastest. The two-door with the best brakes was difficult to identify: the competitors were separated by a few centimeters.
