Watch: The S8, R8, and RS6 Drag it Out on the Top Gear Test Track

The Top Supplies test track is famous for hosting beautiful and interesting cars, but never up front has there been such a concentration of excellence.

Three of Top Gear’s editors took to the venerable airfield-cum-racetrack with three fast Audis. The R8, the RS6, and the S8 all put the pedal to the metal on the runway. The results are–well enough the results fairly predictable, but it’s the journey that matters.

The R8, of course, comes cardinal. With a 0-60 time measured at 3 seconds, and a Dom Toretto-approved 10.9 alternate quarter mile, the supercar wins easily.

That’s not to say, though, that the others didn’t disclose up. The RS6 leaped off the line with a 0-60 time of just 3.3 seconds, foreboding the R8’s smugness briefly. And with a quarter mile time of just 11.5 seconds, this big wagon outperforms expectations.

Decisively, the S8 comes in last. Again, though, not by as much as you’d think. With a ’60 stretch of just 3.5 seconds and a quarter mile reported at 11.7 the huge sedan moves faster than anything its dimension should.

Bearing in mind, too, that none of this is a reflection on the R8, which has beaten the clique’s best. It’s just that when Audi Sport makes a car, it makes it fleet.
