900 HP Audi RS7 Takes On Aventador, Porsche 911 Turbo S in Russian Drag Races

Given the kind of visual aggression Audi designers have packed into the RS7, you can hardly call the Ingolstadt machine a sleeper. However, when such a quattro GmbH machine si tuned to 900 hp, the status mentioned above becomes rather fitting.

You don't even have to take our word for this, as the drag racing action in the video below comes to prove it. The action takes us to Russia's Unlimited 500 sprinting championship, with the RS7 taking on a stock Lamborghini Aventador Roadster, as well as on a modded 991-generation Porsche 911 Turbo S.

The battles seen here take into account the quarter mile performance, as well as the half-mile numbers delivered by the competing machines - we're dealing with a duality that, in many cases, present ones included, can make a world of a difference.

Audi might own Lamborghini, but the driver of this Aventador Roadster isn't ready to let this show on the racetrack - the man is determined to prevent that RS7 from getting ahead and, from racing with his mirror folded to delivering a reaction time that was sharper than that of his adversary, the man went all-out.

Oh, and let's not overlook the fact that he was aided by the devilishly effective launch control feature of the Sant'Agata Bolognese machine, which, as we found out during our review, also manages to transform the 700 hp take-offs into attention-grabbing episodes.

As for the Porsche, this had been gifted with a Stage II Cobb Accesport, which, on 93 Octane fuel, brings the power to 650 horses. The Zuffenhausen machine didn't pull the same stunts as the man in the Aventador Roadster, so the full credit for what you see below goes to his machine.

Check out the piece of footage below for the complete results of what can be called a pair of family brawl drag races.
