    What's quicker, an Audi RS6 wagon or a Nissan GTR?

    The C7 Audi RS6 is not sold in the USA which we may never forgive Audi for. Not everyone needs or wants an SUV and a performance wagon makes a lot of sense. Ok, enough whining about Audi, how does the RS6 stack up to a Nissan GTR?

    The GTR is not light but in this company is the much lighter car by roughly 900 pounds. They are both all wheel drive but the GTR uses a dual clutch transmission compared to the more traditional automatic of the Audi.

    The RS6 obviously has the 4.0 liter turbocharged Audi V8 and the GTR has a slightly smaller VR38DETT V6.

    So which is quicker? The RS6. Unfortunately, no data is provided and it looks to be a rather short drag race. Did the GTR even do a full launch?

    The GTR should be favored based on test results and the weight advantage compared to the RS6. Without any supporting data, it just looks like this video was put together for clicks by providing a controversial result.

    Well, this entire thread would be a good place to start. Why even post it if it's inaccurate?

    Why not? Things should be called into question and discussed right? Who is going to be critical of it?

    This site calls out plenty of nonsense others don't. Just because someone else creates misleading content doesn't mean it can't be used to educate. The Giuliani Quadrifoglio supposedly not delivering on its output for example leading to an article on how dynos differ for example.

    I'm not sure what you're trying to take issue with other than being negative for the sake of being negative.
