SUV vs Supercar Drag Race: Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT v Audi R8

Who’s ready for an SUV v supercar drag race?! We’ve got Mat lining up in the incredible Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT, and he’s going to see if this performance SUV has what it takes to beat a rear-wheel drive R8 over the quarter-mile! So let’s check out the stats. Starting with the Porsche, it’s packing a 4-litre twin-turbo V8 under the bonnet that can produce 640hp and 850Nm of torque. It drives all four wheels, and it tips the scales at 2,220kg. As for the R8, it’s powered by a glorious 5.2-litre naturally-aspirated V10 that’s good for 570hp and 550Nm. It’s a whole lot lighter than the Porsche, though, weighing in at 1,590kg. So the R8 is down on power, but will the massive weight difference prove decisive? There’s only one way to find out – LET’S RACE!
