You asked, and we listened!

Some of you have been complaining that we don’t do enough drag races with normal cars - so here you go! BMW 4 Series vs Audi A5.

First up we’ve got Mat in the 4 Series. It’s the 420i edition, which is powered by a 2-litre turbo petrol to deliver 184hp and 300Nm. Alongside him we’ve got the Audi A5 40 TFSI. Under the bonnet you’ll find a 2-litre turbo petrol which can deliver 190hp and 320Nm.

The question is, which of these everyday superstars has what it takes to snatch the win in this drag race? The Audi is slightly up on power, so will it be an easy victory? Or will the RWD BMW snatch it? You’ll have to keep watching to find out!

I like those cars and brands

massimo piacquadio

Renault Clio dci vs ford fiesta vs seat vs mini vs vw polo


That fake thumbnail tho

Bence Ujvári

So the A5 looks better, cheaper, and faster... hmmmm


4 Series already looks dated

Imam yusofi

There was a time where cars had 4.0 badges with 4.0 litre engines.

I'm expecting the future Mercedes 63 AMG cars will have a 1.5 litre.

What a disgrace. We need to behead all the people that are responsible for this bullshit. Also a special public decapitation of the ' fake exhausts ' design initiators.

Old school middle-aged guillotine action.

Marc Aguilar

Mat do you think you’ll ever try riding a motorcycle?


Hi, could you do a race with a BMW M440, Audi S5, and a Mercedes C43 AMG? I think it would be interesting to see how those entry level sport cars perform and if it’s worth it to get the more expensive versions.

Lucas Nedergaard

Can you please review the audi A7 TSFI 55 e, so the new hybrid A7

Gleb Vinnik

Wow, Audi won both rolling races, impressive....


c8 corvette

BMW fans crying in their sleep, making excuses thinking nothing Audi makes is good.

Ian Bunn

Did my own drag race a couple of weeks ago... a boy racer in a Clio 2.0 Sport, and me in my 3.0l 2020kg diesel Touareg. He didn’t like the outcome.

חננאל חדאד

Honda Civic 1.5

Alberto Spinelli

As always awesome video.
I suggest to add a stability test among all the cars you try.

Just Play

dacia vs something else

Magnus Tan

Yeah, save the drag races for the high performance stuff..... I’d rather watch a group test of these kind of cars, which by the way, you guys should do more of! I really enjoyed the 4-Series vs A5 vs C-Class coupe one.

[[[ *Dragonier* ]]]

Imagine someone offering a conversion kit to replace the new BMW grill with the old one lol

Ata Özcan

this BMW is UGLY AF


Didn't sound right.... Is Audi A4 still around...? Because number wise, they should've head to head, the A4 with 4 Series...

Onur Alp Çimen

the drag race that i needed really. i’m going to buy one of them and can’t decide.


Yeah in Terms of power and drivetrain efficiency you cannot beat an Audi. No other manufacturer produces that great actual dyno numbers. An BMW or Merc is usually well in shape but I have never seen an Audi with less the 5% more power then advertised. And I have seen hundreds of the big three.


Who in their right mind would pay 40k for either of these cars?

Amit Jeevan

That thumbnail tho....

Michael Vuong

Please make more fake thumbnails

Thomas Jacob Kattookaren

How about a 2018 Audi A6 against the New style 2019 A6? I think they both have the same engines... could be interesting!

Calum Tait

Please do the Volvo Iron Knight vs Porsche 911 turbo S, vs that 1000hp bmw m5 or that crazy tuned RS3 (the Iron Knight is the world’s fastest lorry with 2400hp, 6000 nm of torque and goes from 0-62mph in 4.6 seconds) if you could get ur hands on one of these that would be amazing!

Raa Honey
