Well, this is an interesting one. The folks over at CarWow have lined up the Audi RS Q8 and a lightly tuned pre-facelift R8 V10 for a drag race.

As a reminder, the RS Q8 employs a twin-turbo 4,0-litre V8 delivering 441 kW and 800 N.m to all four corners.

And the R8 V10? Well, this particular example’s naturally aspirated 5,2-litre V10 has been tuned to offer 441 kW and 580 N.m, with drive likewise directed to both axles.

Should be a walk in the park for the R8, right? Well, we’ll leave you to watch the video above (which includes a couple of drag battles, a couple of races from a rolling start and a brake test) to find out for sure...
