Audi RS6 generations DRAG RACE
Need help buying your next car? Click and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!
Check this out, RS6 fans - we’ve brought in every generation of the RS6 and they're going head-to-head in an almighty drag race! From the 450hp C5 through to the current 600hp C8, we’re here to find out just how these four generations of RS6 perform over the quarter-mile.
As you’d expect, Mat’s in his long term RS6, the C8. With a 4-litre twin-turbo V8 under the bonnet, it can produce 600hp & 800Nm of torque. Alongside him, we’ve got Yianni in the C7. It may be powered by the same size engine as the C8, however, it can produce slightly more power (605hp), although it’s also slightly down on torque (750Nm).
The C6 may be several years older, but when you consider it’s powered by a 5-litre twin-turbo V10, it’s surely got to be in with a shout, right? Or perhaps the C5, with its 4.2-litre twin-turbo V8, could spring a surprise?
All we know is, there’s only one way to find out… LET’S RACE!

    Swear the c7 had a better launch than the c8 . Put pros behind the wheel

  • Rik Reis

    The C8 looks so nice. About not having launch control, thought they all had? My 2013 C7 has launch control. No setting/menu option, but traction off, sportmode, straight wheel, and brake fully engaged while holding full throttle. Release brake. I didnt think mine had it for years, until I saw a comment about it while googling.

    Not going to replace my C7 RS6. Looks better inside and out than the '8. And the performance is all but identical - reaction time, tyre quality, and surface grip count for more.

    Mr Mat i wanna say i am one of your biggest fans and i am watching your videos even before car wow... But today i would like to report!!!!!! how on earth is it possible a car with a superior power to weight ratio manages to be slower... Grip could be the only factor altering the inevitable result interestingly i have to remind everyone that the performance rs6 c7 comes with standard 21 inch rims and not with 20 only if the owner was racing you on his winter tyres

    I have a C5 RS6. Engine and gearbox rebuilt with genuine parts ordered late 2020. Still not put back together fully but expected to be done by Summer if no more lockdowns and then the interior is getting some tlc before it goes on the road. Ebony Black Pearl with black piping on black leather with carbon trim and media pack, which needs updating to a modern system.. I'll get to it. I think it'll probably go into storage when finished as it will be in factory condition except for the 103,000 miles on the clock.. I won't get my money back from selling it.

    20 years between them and it wasnt exactly a murdering of the C5 I was expecting. Still an amazing car for the time amd still love mine.

  • v1m30

    It's not a Lamborghini derived V10, it's an Audi V10 that's also used in Lambos after the Lambo's V10 went bust. Even original Lambo's V10 was partly built by Audi. Almost all V10 in Lambos are Audi expect early Gallardo 5.0. But hey, it's often car reviewers that get this almost always wrong because somehow Lambo sounds better and more exclusive despite it using well ordinary parts from other makers, brands and cars.
