A video has appeared on YouTube showing the race between the Italian Giulia Quadrifoglio, as well as the German BMW M4 and Audi RS5. All three cars have approximately the same technical characteristics and prices.

The latest video, which appeared on the YouTube channel carwow, shows a drag racing with one Italian car and two German cars. These cars are almost comparable to each other in performance and even price (at least in the UK).

The representative of Italy is the magnificent Alfa Romeo Giulia in the powerful Quadrifoglio, which is equipped with a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 with 510 horsepower (600 Nm).

This is the only car in our race today equipped with an eight-speed torque converter transmission that only drives the rear wheels. Also, this car does not have a launch control function (launch control). It is also the lightest car of the three, weighing 1,519 kg, and the most expensive at £ 66,000, or 6,596,026 at current exchange rates.

Germany is represented in this race by two high-performance cars – the Audi RS5 and the BMW M4. Let’s start in alphabetical order with Audi – under the hood is a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 engine producing 450 horsepower and 600 Nm of torque. It is the heaviest at 1,699 kg, but it has four-wheel drive and an eight-speed ZF transmission. The price is slightly lower than that of the “Italian” – 65,000 pounds sterling.

The BMW M4 is the cheapest of the three – its minimum price is 62,000 pounds, and also the lightest – 1,649 kg. Under the hood is a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 that develops 431 hp. (550 Nm), combined with a fast six-speed DCT gearbox. The Bavarian coupe is equipped with only rear-wheel drive and launch control.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that Nissan 300ZX, which participated in races of the GTO class, will be sold at auction. A unique lot appeared at Stratas Auctions on Saturday 29 August – a Nissan 300ZX Turbo, which took part in the IMSA GTO Championship Races. From 1989 to 1995, these cars were driven by the pilots of the Clayton Cunningam Racing team.
