Nissan GT-R vs. Audi RS6 Performance

How to Hassle A Nissan GT-R By the Audi RS6 Avant (Video)

The current Nissan GT-R has been with us for a decade and it is still one of the quickest vehicles on sale. 0-60 mph only takes 2.9 seconds thanks to 565 horsepower twin-turbo V6 and clever all-wheel drive system.

But can a wagon give the GT-R some grief around a track? If said wagon happens to be the Audi RS6 Performance, then yes.

The RS6 Performance takes the already mad RS6 and turns the wick up a bit. Power has been increased from 560 to 605 horsepower. Paired with the legendary quattro all-wheel drive system, the RS6 performance hits 60 mph in 3.7 seconds. Yes, it trails the Nissan GT-R. But for a vehicle that can carry a family and all of their stuff, this is impressive. Try doing that in a GT-R.

Pistonheads pitted both models on the Blyton Park race track to see how well the RS6 could keep up with the GT-R. You can check out the video below to see what happens. But we'll admit, we're a bit shocked as to how well the RS6 did.
