This thing and the RS6 keep getting compared to M5 Competition and AMG GT 4. And its not even close. I doubt even the eventual "Plus"model will be able to beat the AMG.

I don't think it had DRC suspension propably air suspension that's why it's not that good on track. And still RSes are not equipped with semislicks like others. I can't belive that heavier and taller RSQ8 is faster than RS7.

you'd have to blame the fwd tech they implement on their cars and then throw in a quattro option, because the car will handle better lol

None of the cars that were tested on semi-slicks that day. RS7 is slower than base M5. It even has RWS.

But definitely not DRC suspension. Can't belive that it's slower than RSQ8. It make no sense.

A difference of 20hp is not going to make up for the 3 seconds. That is weight and chassis control

Because its a powerful fast 4 door car, Similiar power, weight, price, Why else would it be compared?

I could care less if its slower, Its by FAR the best lookin 4 door of the bunch Frankly of Any(probably) 4 door car ever made IMO And if this is there only car, People who buy these are Highly unlikely taking them to the trsck every weekend, Laptimes are marketing gummicks and for people who take them there, This getting beat by an M5 or GT4 mean nothing.

It was with DRC, they did mension "DRC-Fahrwerks" in article. Blame the Hankook Ventus tyres.

Ok thanks for the info. Still those hankooks aren't much worse than p zeros. They can't drive then.
