Drag race! Audi RS7 vs. Bentley Flying Spur vs. Porsche Panamera

Time for another drag race! This time, CarWow pits the new Audi RS7 Sportback against the Bentley Flying Spur and Porsche Panamera.

As a reminder, the fresh-faced RS7 Sportback draws its urge from a twin-turbo 4,0-litre V8 petrol engine (with a 48 V mild-hybrid system), sending 441 kW and 800 N.m to all four corners.

Bentley’s Flying Spur makes use of a twin-turbo 6,0-litre W12 (also with a 48 V electrical system) worth 467 kW and 900 N.m, while the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid’s twin-turbo 4,0-litre V8 combines with an electric motor for total system outputs of 500 kW and 850 N.m.

All three feature eight-speed automatic transmissions (the Audi’s is a torque converter while the Bentley’s and Porsche’s are dual-clutches) and all-wheel drive.
