Each week UK automotive website Car Wow brings us a new video. This week it takes the form of a high-performance SUV drag race. It’s a bit different from the large SUV drag race they’ve arranged before (video link here) in that all the vehicles in this week’s video come from the VW Group.

Four-way family feud
The four-way high-performance SUV drag race features an Audi RSQ8, a Lamborghini Urus, a Porsche Cayenne Turbo S Hybrid and a Bentley Bentayga (which was recently facelifted as you can read about here). Three of the four models in the race are powered by the same engine. The Audi, Lamborghini and Porsche are all fitted with a 4,0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 under the bonnet. However, each car has a slightly different power output. All the cars feature automatic transmissions that are mated with all-wheel-drive.
The RSQ8 develops ‘just’ 441 kW with peak torque of 800 N.m (you can read up more on the Audi RSQ8 by clicking here). Next up is the Urus with 480 kW of power and 850 N.m of torque (you can read our driving impression of the Urus at this link). Most powerful of the V8s is the Cayenne that produces 500 kW thanks to an electric hybrid component. Bentley’s Bentayga has a 6,0-litre W12, also fitted with twin-turbochargers that helps it develop 448 kW and peak torque of 900 N.m.
All four cars race from a standing start, from a rolling start and then perform a braking test to see which is the best straight-line performer. Take a guess as to which you think is the quickest and post your guess to our Facebook page before watching the video below
