Who’s up for an Audi electric vs diesel drag race?! We’re pitting the new Audi e-tron against the Q7!

On the face of it you might think this’ll be an easy walkover for the all-electric e-tron, given it can put its power down instantly. But this is no normal Q7 it’s lining up against… Released in 2009, this diesel-powered SUV is packing an absolutely huge 6-litre V12 which produces 500hp & 1,000Nm of torque!

As a result, this Q7 produces more power than the e-tron. Even with two electric motors underneath, the EV Audi can produce 405hp & 664Nm. Think it’s game over for the e-tron? Well we haven't told you about the weight yet! Even though the e-tron may tip the scales at 2,445kg, it’s still the lightest car here… With the Q7 weighing 2,635kg!!

Think it’ll be too close to call? There’s only one thing left to do… LET’S RACE!

    Can't believe a suv with that much power and cost was only 14.1 in the quarter. With that said, if Money was no issue I'd spring for the diesel.

    I mean. Old or not. And I’m not a diesel guy. But come on. A V12 tdi ? I can only imagine how much people laughed when that one guy in engineering suggested “what about a v12 diesel?” It’s mental!!! When the car goes to shit, just put that engine in a tractor.. or a crane !!!
