Audi’s legendary inline five-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine turns 45 this year. What better way to celebrate one of the company’s iconic factories than a drag race of no less than five different models powered by the inline-five? It carwow The team has come to our aid with its new exclusive video, which features five legends battling each other in live drag races.
Which car will you see in the video? There are Audi Quattro 20v, Audi Quattro Group B rally car, Audi Sport Quattro, Audi S2 Coupe, and Audi RS2 Avant. For Audi fans, this is the holy grail of the Audi Quattro family and we can’t deny that these are all fantastic vehicles. We’ve seen most of them in action in different races and chases, though it’s a rare opportunity to see them racing together.
We don’t need to explain what engine powers this vehicle – there are different specs of the same inline-five under the hood of all five competitors. However, it might be interesting to mention that this Audi combined costs £2,115,000 or more than $2.5 million at current exchange rates. This is one of the more expensive drag races, to say the least.
So, which car is the fastest in this drag race? You probably don’t need to be a car expert to predict the outcome of this competition as one car is set up for motorsport and is the most expensive of the five. Even though the rally car didn’t have the best launch, it managed to beat its rivals easily at the end of the first race. We were surprised to see the RS2 Avant was so slow compared to other cars, but it’s worth mentioning that the start wasn’t great either.
For the second round, the rally car nailed the launch and completely destroyed the competition. The RS2 Avant also has a better start, though that’s not enough to bring it closer to the rest of the cars. We’re disappointed to see the possibility of our favorite Audi RS model doing so badly, to be honest.
