Here we have two twin-turbocharged German V-8s sitting inside two very different cars. In one corner is the Audi RS 7 and in the other is the Mercedes-AMG GT S. Both are performance cars, and both have different ways putting power to the ground, but more importantly: who is faster?
In a very unscientific drag race performed from a roll, the Audi RS 7 and its twin-turbocharged 4.0 TFSI V-8 with 552 bhp and 516 lb-ft. of torque quickly gets off to a fast start thanks to its all-wheel drive system. The Mercedes-AMG GT S and its twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 with 503 horsepower and 480 lb-ft. of torque isn’t as powerful, but it quickly gains the upper hand and beats the Audi down the stretch.
While the two cars aren’t likely to be cross-shopped, it isn’t unlikely that these two will do a few stoplight battles in the future. Just know that the Mercedes-AMG GT S is faster before you place your bet.
