The Audi TT RS might have the most powerful five-cylinder turbo engine Audi has right now, but is it a match for a muscle car from a country that invented the quarter mile drag race? Let's find out.
This drag race was shot in Germany and features a current generation Camaro going up against an Audi TT RS coupe. Both have a few small mods but appear to be stock beyond that. The quattro car barely wins it with a difference of about 0.1s over the 1/4 mile.

In Europe where Camaros are relatively expensive imports, this is a fair comparison, but what would people thing if they saw this scene in front of their local Christmas tree lights? A US-market TT RS costs $57,000, which if we're not mistaken gets you the best Camaro around, the ZL1.

Mihnea's favorite cars have already been built, the so-called modern classics from the '80s and '90s. He also loves local car culture from all over the world, so don't be surprised to see him getting excited about weird Japanese imports, low-rider VWs out of Germany, replicas from Russia or LS swaps down in Florida.
