I genuinely think the AWD will be sub 3.4.

The RS5 absolutely crushes the M4 from a dig, which means that advertised 3.9 time is complete rubbish (and Carwow did an instrumented test where it did 3.9 in the soaking wet). Add to that my anecdotal experience of test driving one yesterday, where the entirety of the experience was "meh" EXCEPT for the launch, which took me by surprise and actually knocked the wind out of me. That RS5 is in the 3.5-3.6 range for sure.

However, the M4 beats it from a roll, no contest. So if the xDrive hooks up the same as the Quattro system (big if), there's absolutely no way this thing doesn't pull close to M5's advertised numbers in the 0-60. Completely insane.

Edit: C&D tested the RS5 at 3.5 to 60. I'm betting the M4 xDrive will do it in 3.3. Seriously.

I thought the same thing and you could see the M catching up rapidly.

WTF happened to the AMG??

And the roll was buttered up nicely by the M.

Sometimes we do.

Though I find it overwhelmingly difficult to believe that a stock RS5 beats a c63s from a roll, if both are in peak powerband.

I couldn't care less.

But it is a indicator for the performance of the car and sometimes I like to watch this drag race videos, it's not my car so I don't care

I know that 480hp, no matter if Mercedes, Audi, BMW, Alfa or whatever car, is a lot and will without a doubt be a lot of fun.

I do care much more about the drivability, daily practicality and fun factor. Power have all of them enough for my needs

I'm still taking a C63S over an M4. I think.

0-60 races have been happening via car mags since before I conceived driving. It's nothing new and it's not going anywhere.

Whatever. AWD wins of course.

I bet the Audi is a snoozefest outside a straight line.

AMG got the dirty side of the road.

They should switch lanes, and do it a couple of times (full disclosure: I am not an AMG fan).

Did I hear correctly? You have to cool the M4 for a few minutes before it allows another launch?

I hope the X-Drive version is amazing. I am going to wait until I see that version, and get a test drive. There are compromises always. The car has to suit your lifestyle and habits.
