BMW M5 V10 vs AMG E55 vs Audi RS6: DRAG RACE *NA vs Turbo vs Supercharged*

Need help buying your next car? Click the following link and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!

It’s time to find out which estate from the 2000s was the fastest! We’ve got the Audi RS6 C6, the BMW E61 M5 Touring and the AMG E55 Estate lining up to do battle over the quarter-mile.

First up we have Mat in the RS6, which is powered by a 5-litre twin-turbo V10 to deliver 579hp and 650Nm of torque. It weighs in at just over 2-tonnes, and it also comes with Quattro all-wheel-drive!

As for the BMW, it’s hiding a 5-litre naturally-aspirated V10 up-front, which puts down 507hp and 520Nm. It weighs a fair bit less than the RS6, coming in at 1,880kg, but unlike the Audi it’s just rear-wheel-drive.

Finally we have the AMG E55, which houses a 5.4-litre supercharged V8. It delivers the least power, with just 476hp, but it has the ability to put down 700Nm! And just like the BMW, it’s just RWD.

Surely it’ll be a walkover for the Audi, right?! There’s only one way to find out… LET’S RACE!

    Audi came out in 2007-2010 So is next model unfortunately after RS6 Wich has a V8 ... If U want to be equal bring this model and that would be fair. Mercedes will swipe them like nothing...

    Gearbox lets the BMW M5 down. The trick is to slightly lift off and have it in S5 setting. Otherwise you get too much lag between shifts and just drop time.

    Your pro driver is short shifting that smg m5. SMG is shit, true, however you can shift quicker if you keep it in almost the last gear speed, and slightly lift off the throttle as you shift. Also, if you don't rev to 8250, you are losing power as this car doesn't make peak power until 7750 rpm.

    The E55 AMG and the M5 are of closer era than that RS6. Not too fair to put that RS6. Should have put an older RS6 or RS4 for comparision.

    Nope, the 4.2 V8 Twin Turbo was the Audi’s, because the E55 in the same era of the Audi V10 was actually the E63 (6.2 V8) the BMW E60 was the only truth here, as the V8 was the E39 that ran 400hp on stick/manual box only, E60 was the preferred SMG, it was very fast changes if you knew how to set it up, both the E55 & E60 both could just go over 200mph Mark, as the Audi V8 couldn’t as the stock power was 450-460, unless you bought the upgrade ECU from Audi at $4000 then it had upto 520-550hp...
