German coupes

The challengers this week both hail from Germany and are quite similar in most aspects. The Audi RS7 has a twin-turbocharged V8 that produces 441 kW and 800 N.m of torque. Power is sent to all four wheels through an eight-speed transmission connected to Audi’s famed quattro system.

Mercedes’ GT63S is also a four-door coupe that has the same engine type, size and forced-induction set-up, but it does have an extra ratio in the transmission. However, it produces a sportscar-rivalling 470 kW and 900 N.m of twist action. Read our GT63S driving review and watch our track video at this link.

While there is a power difference, the Audi weighs a bit less than the Merc. Will that help it in a standing start against the heavy hitting AMG? Watch the four-door coupe drag race below to find out. If you enjoy this video feel free to share it using the social media buttons below.
