Drag race: VW Golf R vs Audi TT RS vs Porsche Cayman GT4 vs Lamborghini Urus

September 11, 2021 by

What happens when you put a four, five, six and eight-cylinder car against one another? You get today’s carwow drag race.

Lining up on the airstrip is the four-cylinder VW Golf R, five-cylinder Audi TT RS, the straight-six powered Porsche Cayman GT4 and V8-powered Lamborghini Urus.

On engine size alone, you’d think it’d be quite the predictable race, but that may not be as it seems…

Let’s start with the VW Golf R. It produces 320hp and 420Nm, sent to all four wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox and tips the scales at 1,551kg.

Next to that is the Audi TT RS with 400hp and 480Nm, driving an all-wheel-drive system with a similar gearbox to the Golf and weighing in at 1,450kg.

Matching that for size the 1,450kg Cayman GT4, although its six-cylinder kicks out 420hp and 420Nm to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual gearbox.

The largest and most powerful of all is the Lamborghini Urus with 650hp and 850Nm, which is delivered to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic gearbox, though is easily heaviest at 2,199kg.

Which engine configuration has the win today, then? You’ll need to watch to find out…
