Hi how are you martin here from carl wine so i’m sat in an audi r8 rear wheel drive and next to me is a bmw m5 competition and we’re going to have a drag race because these two german performance cars are similar in terms of their performance but quite different in the way they go about it now this audi r8 has a 5.2 liter natural spray v10 mounted just behind

Me puts out 570 horsepower and 550 newton meters of torque drives the rear wheels only in this particular car by a seven-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox will launch control this r8 rear wheel driveway is in at 1 590 kilos and it costs 132 000 pounds that bmw has a 4.4 liter twin turbo v8 which puts out 625 horsepower and 750 newton meters of torque and it

Drives all four wheels by an 8-speed automatic gearbox but it does still have launch control it’s heavy car that it weighs in at 1 895 kilos and it costs 60 000 pounds and that particular car has been lent to us by a charity called sporting bears they do a lot of good work for kids basically if you go to a car show they usually then you can sign up pay some money

Make a donation and they’ll take you for a drive in one of their high performance cars such as that m5 or it could be a lamborghini aventador though they also have some weird stuff like a model t ford anyhow the link to them is in the description go check them out and as ever if you’ve been watching for a while and you haven’t done so already please make sure you

So nick rev up your bmw that doesn’t actually belong to you or the bmw press office said by charity so you’ve got to be very careful with it i smell soft limiter it does have a self-limiter i’m gonna go warm up my tires because you know rear wheel drive r8 why not let’s give it a go yeah i’ll go around very nice then that’s enough of that that was fun um

I thought you were just going to stop there matt and we’d move the start line to make it look like you did that deliberately do but we don’t damage it so the kids can’t have a go in it come on on oh yes lost it in the instance come on really man really mean he’s coming back okay you had me from the start but i started to reel you in a little bit you were

Creeping up through my side windows i saw you getting closer but not close enough was it matt that wasn’t close enough um you have got four-wheel drive and a bit more power and a lot more torque i think that means i have to have another go oh yeah go on when you put it like that when i whinge it in a birmingham accent the booming ax is really good at avoiding his

People to get them to do what you want them to do come on kevin here to go come on please oh go on please oh thank you two come on audi do it oh he’s a slippery one that is one each that was one heck of a launch matt i’ll give you that that car absolutely flew up you know what that means one win each best two out of three we’ve got to do decider three two one

Oh this is just the closest race ever come on oh no he’s getting away he’s gonna do it boom totally wasn’t expecting that i thought you’re gonna have me after the first race but then this just seems to hook up and then you just keep pulling and pulling and pulling away i’m gutted i’ve just got one slight thing that’s bothering me i wonder if i jump the start

Uh stewarts can you let me know if i jump the start or whether it was good nope the start was all good yes so then what exactly happened well the audi won just crossing the line ahead of the bmw they were both cars did the standing quarter mile in 11.3 seconds now we have a rolling race from 50 miles an hour with the cars in their comfiest settings and automatic

Mode for the gearbox i’m gonna count it in i’ve got a weird rattle anyway three two one go throttle stopped ah curse you naturally has braided engines foreign still managed to win that happened just at the right time that’s the half mile mark hey you lost that was close kick down’s good on yours kickdown’s all right on this this just yeah supercar right and

Not just any supercar naturally aspirated supercar can’t say that about mini anymore can you no it’s nice makes a great noise though i’m a bit concerned i had a rattle it kind of went away as i went past but now i’ve got a tire pressure monitoring warning let’s see if we can fix that and um then we’ll have another race now we have another rolling race from digimon

Now again but this time with the cards in their sports is setting and running away for the gearbox i’ve checked the tire pressures and it’s 2.75 when it should be 2.8 i don’t think it’s too much of a problem so i’m gonna risk it for a biscuit three two one race or pick up his sweet not as good as that bmw much better this time it’s got me now wow you’ve clearly

Beat me there nick turbocharged talk right wave of torque this thing when it’s in the gear actually needs to be and picks up so well yeah poor me anyway final challenge now we’re gonna have a break test for 100 miles an hour the car to stop in the shortest distance wins you’d rather watch another drag race instead click on the pop-up man up there i’ll follow

The link in the description below for call race evolving a different audi r8 if not stay here for the brake test here we go foreign oh my god how the heck did that even happen i can’t believe it i lost oh i tell him about that had me worried about like i drove into a ditch nothing pitched down it was breaking so hard yeah lost by quite a margin really i was not
