The Audi Showdown
In a drag race of massive proportions, the people at CarWow decided to take all of Audi’s most impressive performance cars, along with the Ducati 959 Panigale sport bike, and pit them against each other on one long strip of airfield.
Lined up side by side, the classic Audi design traits are evident in each of the smooth, rounded bonnets and sculpted contours. The evolution of the brand also shines through in the sleek and refined silhouette of the R8 V10 Plus, the culmination of each design that has come before it.
The Ducati on the end is currently made by Audi, offering an impressive view of their efforts in sport bike design. Presenting a meaner, more sharply focused face than those of its four-wheeled equivalents, the Ducati 959 Panigale leans perpetually forward in motion, ready to spring at a moment’s notice, a sentiment echoed in the lean face of the R8.
The classic RS2 Avant appears unassuming in the line-up amidst its meaner, more refined younger brothers, but the 2.2-litre five cylinder turbocharged Porsche engine hidden under the bonnet is not to be taken lightly. The sound of the engine is all you need to know just how much power the classic RS2 still has to offer, and even the R8 has trouble keeping up.
