May 17, 2022 by

It’s time for another petrol vs electric drag race, as the Audi RS5 takes on the BMW i4 M50.

For today’s race, Mat’s behind the wheel of an Audi RS5 Sportback. It has a 2.9-litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine with 450hp and 600Nm of torque. This drives all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic gearbox with launch control. It tips the scales at 1,742kg.

Taking on Mat and the Audi, we have the BMW i4 M50. It has dual electric motors which put out a combined 544hp and 745Nm of torque. This goes to all four wheels, but the car’s a little on the weighty side – it tips the scales at 2,215kg.

So which will come out on top? Will the power of the BMW be enough, or will the weight hold it back? You’ll have to watch the video to find out.
