A video has appeared on the YouTube channel, which captures a race in a straight line, in which the powerful German hatchback VW Golf R 2021 model and “charged” station wagon Audi RS6 Avant participates.

In the extensive model range of cars of the German concern Volkswagen Group, there are many truly powerful and fast models. Among the fastest – “charged” German cars: VW Golf R 2021 model year and Audi RS6 Avant.

Before watching the published video, you should familiarize yourself with the technical characteristics of applicants for a ride.

The eighth generation VW Golf in the R version is the most powerful performance of a German car. Under the hood of this version of the popular compact car in Europe is a 2.0-liter turbocharged direct injection petrol engine producing 315 horsepower and 420 Nm of torque. This is the most powerful VW Golf ever. Losing weight compared to its predecessor, the new Golf R can accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in four seconds.

The Audi RS6 Avant and its 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 can develop up to 591 hp. (800 Nm). These figures are much higher than those of the “charged” VW Golf R, but it should be borne in mind that the “hot” VW hatchback is much lighter than a hot van – more than 453.59 kg.

With that said, and knowing the fact that both of these cars are equipped with an all-wheel drive system, the result of the race is unpredictable at first glance.
