    2017 B9 Audi S5 turbo vs. Camaro SS and Mercedes-AMG C43 coupe drag race

    The Camaro SS arguably should be going up against the C63 and not the C43. It is impossible for it to go up against a B9 RS5 as there is no B9 RS5 on the market yet so the brand new B9 S5 is the logical Audi representation.

    The new S5 has a potent and impressive 355 horsepower and 368 lb-ft of torque twin scroll single turbo 3.0 V6. It should be an Audi tuner's dream. Speaking of which, it is going to need a tune to beat these cars.

    It is not surprising the Camaro SS is the quickest of the bunch. What is surprising is that the Mercedes C43 beats the S5. The Mercedes does not even have a true AMG powerplant but a 367 horsepower slightly tweaked M276 DELA30 twin turbo V6.

    Unfortunately, as this is Autobild and they do not understand that trap speeds would be very telling in a drag race comparison including rear wheel drive V8 but we only get elapsed times because they suck at this:

    Camaro: 12.60
    C43: 12.84
    S5: 12.94

    The Audi brings up the rear which is surprising. Maybe it's a bit heavier than Audi let on?

    I don't know. These people don't know what they are doing anyway.

    The C43 must be packing considerably more power than its C450 predecessor for it to pull that strong:

    Keep in mind that is a Dyno Dynamics.

    Still seems pretty low for the HP number, here's my S5 dyno before and after unitronic stage 1+: Click here to enlarge

    Even when I still had my tuned '10 WRX it put down 265 AWHP and 290 AWTQ (lb-ft). (Can't find the graph right now for some reason)

    Yeah but you don't know what correction factor they are using. Trying to compare various Dyno Dynamics is a pain in the ass.
