Nissan GT-R vs. Audi R8 V10 Plus

This is an all-out drag race between two of the premier sports cars in production, right now.

Great looking Audi sedans aren’t just for soccer moms anymore. With minimal modification, these two Audi grocery getters showed up at the Cecil County Dragway and shocked everyone in attendance by running consistent 10-second passes in the 135 mph range.

These cars leave the line like they were shot from a cannon – without a burnout! The $110K RS7 is powered by a twin turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine. It makes an astounding 605hp and 553 lb.-ft. of torque. In stock Read More

January 6th, 2017

Hello drag racing enthusiasts and welcome to an all out half-mile drag race between two premium German production sports cars. A few weeks ago, we were treated to a similar video which pitted the Audi R8 V10 against the Audi R8 V10 Plus and, as expected the Plus won out by a very narrow margin. So, what would happen if we lined the Audi R8 V10 up against another similarly equipped German luxury sports coupe? The R8’s competition is no less than the long and sleek Mercedes-Benz AMG GT S. Both cars are built with meticulous care and precision engineering Read More

Audi R8 V10 vs. Audi R8 V10 Plus

December 15th, 2016

Hello racing fans and automobile enthusiasts of every ilk and welcome to the Shift-S3ctor California Airstrip Attack 2016. This race is between two very capable, virtually stock sports cars from Germany. It takes place on a closed airstrip during a typically sunny (if a bit smoggy) day in Southern California. As you may know by now, the 2017 Audi R8 Plus is akin to the feared Lamborghini Huracan. Since both Audi and Lamborghini are owned by the Volkswagen Group, this should come as no surprise.
