800 HP BMW M6 Drag Races 700 HP Mercedes C63 AMG and Stock Audi S6

We know you guys told us time and time again that having a stock car going up against a tuned one is not fair but it’s not our fault that owners still go at it, is it? We can’t deprive you of awesome drag races, now can we?

In the video below we get to see some rather interesting things happening. First of all we have a standard, bone stock Audi S6 showing us what all-wheel drive means in these scenarios. The car uses a version of the 4-liter TFSI V8 from the RS6 but tuned to make less power.

With 450 HP and 406 lb-ft (550 Nm) of torque, the four-ringed model isn’t exactly lightning fast but it can hold its own. The quattro all-wheel-drive system keeps it ahead of the 800 HP M6 at the beginning of the race.

It’s rather interesting too because, the BMW has a rear-wheel drive setup and, even though in standard guise it has a lot more power (560 HP) it’s still just marginally quicker than the Audi here (4.4 seconds versus 4.2 seconds).

In this race, though, the 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 we see at work here was ‘massaged’ to make 800 HP instead, a figure that is way above what anyone expected. Therefore, it’s no surprise that the Municher won here.

Then came the moment when the blue and white roundel went up against the three-pointed star. Yes, we’re looking at a 700 HP Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG here that was tuned into oblivion. Under its bonnet lies a 6.2-liter V8 that used to be naturally aspirated but is no longer. The guys from Morendi-Weistec took care of that with a supercharger and that’s how we arrive at this ridiculous amount of power.

Will the extra 100 HP of the BMW be enough to counter for the weight difference between the two cars? They may be but when we’re dealing with so much power on the rear axle alone, it almost always comes down to the drivers. Let’s see what’s what.
