Who’s ready for an epic Audi v BMW showdown?!

Mat’s lining up for this all-new drag race in the brand new BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe! This M440i is powered by a 3.0-litre twin-turbo straight six under the bonnet, which puts down 374hp & 500Nm of torque! It weighs in at 1,900kg and costs £42,000.

The Audi RS5, meanwhile, costs a whopping £71,000!!! It packs a 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 engine that can deliver 450hp & 600Nm. It’s also lighter than the BMW, weighing 1,720kg.

The Audi arguably has the power advantage, but we know BMWs are quick... So, which car will come out on top? LET’S RACE!

    I’m always a big fan of these Audi Vs Bmw races cause the most fun is to read the comment section 🤣

    Would love to see the new Rs3 vs the bigger Rs models. Got a feeling it'd be too close for comfort.

    I would like to see a comparison between a M340i and a M340d. Both wagons or both sedans, it does not matter. I know there is a little difference in HP figures between them (34 HP), but an impressive one when it comes to torque (200 Nm).

    I absolutely love how involved and much Yianni thoroughly enjoys racing (and winning) regardless of which car he's driving! 🏁 🏁 🏁 🏁 🏁 🏁

    Having seen this, the result was as expected but honestly I’m not sure the RS5 is worth £30k more than the M440i.

    The m440i gran coupe has the B58 engine, which has a single twin scroll turbo, not twin turbos as stated here.

    There is no way an M440I is 42k. The M440i models (coupe, Gran coupe and convertible) are made to compete with the S5 (coupe, sport back and convertible) and all are priced over £50k when new.

    And there was me thinking Mat had made a new year's resolution to not always pick the fastest car (or cheat) 😂

    One thing is for certain, the M3 xdrive is really going to hammer the RS4 and 5

    These cars shouldn’t be pitched against one another. BMW does well against the RS but would like to have seen it up against the S5.

    Hey Matt, I found a trick in my 2016 S4 to bypass the rev limiter.

    Would be more interested in a M440i/S5 comparison.

    I'm not a fanboy of either brands, but the Audi is almost 30k more, wouldnt it be more fair if it would race against an M4 for example?
