    • 2020 C8 Audi RS6 vs. Mercedes-AMG GT S 4-Door dig race (in damp conditions)

      The more new Audi C8 RS6 content, the better. This time around we have the new Audi super wagon taking on AMG's best four-door, the GT S. Now, the more natural matchup is the E63 S wagon as previously stated but what you see is what you get.


      Both vehicles have twin turbocharged V8's with top mount twin scroll turbochargers. They have similar displacement, direct injection, and frankly are way too similar. It's getting boring in the German performance world.

      You also have both featuring all wheel drive which is a good thing considering this is a British comparison and it seems that the tarmac in Britain is never dry.

      How does it go down? The Audi gets a much better launch in the wet and wins. A change of traction modes (ESP off) is tried for the AMG.

      The second run still has a poor start for the AMG which seems to be more due to reaction time. You see the AMG start a steady pull forward but it is not enough to catch the RS6.

      A roll race to settle this? Nope, omitted. The AMG seems as if it would win on the top end but someone else will have to do that race.
