Now that more and more incarnations of a 991.2 Porsche 911 Turbo are reaching their owners, the rivalry between the 911 Turbo and Audi R8 is fiercer than ever and we want to bring you an episode involving such the family brawl.
The drag race we have here sees the 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo S and the 2016 Audi R8 V10 Plus turning against each other. Basically, we are talking about the fiercest contraptions you can find in the Audi or Porsche showroom today.
The two engaged in the half-mile trap speed battle on the airfield runway, with the trap speed values at the end of the run being the ones that matter.
This wasn’t an even fight and that’s because of the Zuffenhausen-related details of the duel. And you see, despite Porsche upping the ante to 580 horsepower for the Turbo S’ mid-cycle revamp, this owner decided to go for the soft ECU remap, one that allows the rear-engined supercar to deliver 600 hp.
Then there’s the take-off phase – for some strange reasons, a Neunelfer turned to its vicious Launch Control feature, while the 610 horsepower R8 didn’t.
Since we have thrown enough spoilers at you, we won’t mention the MPH values of the two supercar, and these are clearly shown in this video, so you’ll be well informed.
