DRAG RACE: Audi R8 v Chevy Corvette v Porsche 911

On this week’s drag race it’s a battle between three unlikely contenders at the line. The Chevrolet Corvette visits the other side of the pond to face two German nameplates: the Porsche 911 and Audi R8. The only thing common among these three cars is that their power plants all power the rear wheels only.

We’ve got Mat in a Corvette C8 Stingray, and he’s facing off against a Porsche 911 Carrera and an Audi R8 RWD! Now all these cars have pretty varied outputs, but we assure you it’s going to be closer than you think! Starting with the Corvette, it’s powered by a 6.2-litre naturally-aspirated V8 that puts down 482hp & 613Nm. It also weighs in at 1,655kg. As for the Porsche, its 3-litre flat-six twin-turbo engine can ‘only’ put down 385hp and 450Nm. However, it’s easily the lightest car here, weighing in at just 1,509kg! Then finally we have the Audi. It’s powered by a gorgeous 5.2-litre naturally-aspirated V10, that’s good for 570hp and 550Nm. It also weighs in at 1,609kg. So what do you think – will the Audi walk it? Or will the 911’s lightweight prove the difference? There’s only one way to find out – LET’S RACE!
