BMW M5 CS Lines Up For A Drag Race Against Audi RS7

Weight is the deciding factor in this fight.

Daniel Abt has gotten ahold of a new BMW M5 CS and Audi RS7 for some drag races. These big sedans are both mighty quick, but let’s see how they compare.

Just in terms of power, these two seem very similar. The BMW produces 626 horsepower (467 kilowatts and 553 pound-feet (750 Newton-meters) of torque from a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8. The Audi has 592 hp (441 kW) and 590 lb-ft (800 Nm) from a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V8. Both are all-wheel drive.

The major differentiating factor is weight. The M5 CS is 4,189 pounds (1,900 kilograms), but the RS7 is a heftier 4,718 pounds (2,140) kilograms. As you might expect, 529 pounds (240 kilograms) makes a significant difference in a drag race. For the full story and video, check out this article from Motor 1.
