2014 Audi RS5 vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz C63 507 Coupe! - Head 2 Head Ep. 51
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman sets out to discover which
German hot-rod-personal-luxury-coupe is the best you can get. The 507 Coupe
is the last iteration of the W204 C63. With the exception of the very
limited-run Black Series, it's the best C63 that AMG has ever done. Under
its hood sits a hand-built, 6.2-liter naturally aspirated V-8 good for 507
more do you want? Perhaps something more high-tech, and that's where the
Audi RS5 comes in. The sexy coupe from Quattro GmbH in Neckarsulm features
a 4.2-liter V-8 that spits out 450 hp. That¹s less power than the 507
Coupe makes, true, but the Audi also features AWD, a dual-clutch
transmission, bigger wheels and tires, plus a trick torque-vectoring rear
differential. Which one is quicker? Which one is more fun to drive? Which
one is best? Watch and find out!
Head 2 Head appears every fourth Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.

Golf IV RSI 1200BHP Dahlback at Butonwillow Raceway.flv
Hans Dahlback with his Golf RSI at race track in Buttonwillow!!!
GOLF RSI SPECIFICATION:
From interview with HANS DAHLBACK dahlbackracing owner:
Yes, the infamous Golf may be able to put out 1,200 horsepower. Possibly. The
story that comes from Hans Dahlback, the owner of Dahlback Racing and the
mastermind behind these insane cars, is that the car, when running on a Dyno that bolts to the
hubs, produced well over 850 hp to the wheels at around 8,000 rpm before
the Dyno started
reading errors--and the car revs to upward of 11,000 rpm. Using a 15
percent drivetrain-loss calculation, at 8,000 rpm the car was over 1,000
flywheel horsepower. I'm making an
educated guess that the car produced another few ponies in the 3,000 rpm
Considering Dahlback claims the motor pulls strong until just under 11,000
rpm--with the power increasing dramatically in the last couple thousand
rpm--it's reasonable to assume, considering the extent the motor's power
curve was climbing at the point the Dyno stopped reading, that the
car would have likely gained another 100 or 200 horses in the remaining
available revs. You also have to keep in mind that Dahlback massively
underpromises any horsepower claim. I was told
by various people at Dahlback's shop that the Golf was producing
significantly more than 850 wheel horsepower on the Dyno, but Dahlback would only
confirm 850-plus hp, and thus that is what I worked my calculations from.
And yes, the car shoots flames out the side exit Exhaust during deceleration.
It was snowing most of the time I was in Sweden, so I didn't get to go for
a ride in the monster Golf, but I did watch quite a bit of track footage of
the car running in Stockholm--from what I saw, the car most definitely
produces 1,200 hp. What I did get to do, however, was rip the nose piece
off the Golf, put the car on a lift, and investigate why this VW is so
