The Audi Sport driving experience #leagueofperformance in Biel was a wonderland of pure adrenaline and eargasm.
We gave them all a try (so you don't have to- wait is that a good thing? ) and we selected our personal favorites from the lineup. If you're a petrolhead and you’ve got plenty of money to spend then hang tight!
Our 1st Pick had to be the R8 :
There’s no doubt that the Audi R8 is the Lamborghini Huracan’s twin sister, the two cars have practically the same engine, transmission, partially carbon-fiber floor and bulkhead, chassis hard points, steering system, and electronic architecture yet the two cars deliver extremely different characters and driving experiences.
The R8 is available as a standard V10 coupe with 540 horsepower (0 to 100 km/h takes 3.5 seconds and can reach a top speed of 323 km/h) or a V10 Plus with screaming 610 horsepower (0 to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds, 0 to 200 km/h in 9.9 seconds, and a top speed of 330 km/h).Both trims share a 5.2 displacement and the price of the base model is around $240,900 (excluding VAT and Reg). We got to test the acceleration of the standard V10 it was still pretty impressive, the thrill you feel as this beast speeds is priceless and the torque just makes you drown in its hot red bucket seats!
We can guarantee that this baby is an instant mood-lifter! It gives you all the power, traction and eargasm every petrolhead needs.
The new R8 is set to give you maximum traction and stability, the grip is just fantastic. If you’ve seen one speeding on public roads you probably know the R8 just grasps and goes, the drivetrain works to maximize traction at all times.
Our 2nd pick is the RS6, this is undebatably Audi’s most amusing car!
It’s got the edge, the speed, the practicality and the handling most of all. However, if you are “fuel economy” oriented then this car is probably a bad idea…
The interior and exterior design is just destructively stylish and practical making it your ideal everyday driving machine.
From a ‘driving experience’ perspective, the new RS6 still leads by the nose a little but this is actually the fun part, it might even slide a little! While we think this is a great fun highlight it’s probably not the ideal thing you want to do on public roads but we appreciate this feature anyway.
The RS 6 is available in a 4.0-liter V8 TFSI dynamic engine.The overboost function offers a temporary torque increase of 50 Nm, up to a maximum of 750 Nm.
We don't want to leave out the rest of the range like the RS7 which takes the first rank among its german four-door coupe competitors like the BMW M6 Gran Coupe and the Mercedes-Benz CLS 63 S 4MATIC AMG. This is by far one of the greatest performance sedans of all time!
Its smooth 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 in the RS7 unleashes a good 605 horsepower, just five hp fewer than the 5.2-liter V-10 in the blazing-fast R8 supercar.
Now for the RS3 which we like to call “the mini version of the RS6”, perfectly merges the amazing performance of the RS6 while being smaller and lighter. You can’t imagine how playful and practical this ride can be for everyday use and for all weather conditions: rain, mud, snow… this baby does it all!
