Drag Race: Audi TT RS vs. Dodge Charger SRT8

Just like the first generation, the Audi TT received a bad rep for being based on a normal hatchback platform shared with the previous A3 and Golf 5. That doesn't sound like an inspiring car, does it!

The TT RS launched in 2009 packs 340 PS from its turbocharged 2.5-liter turbo engine. People say it's not much fun, but as a pure traction machine, it's right up there with an Audi R8 V8.

On today's little drag race episode, the TT RS takes on a Dodge Charger SRT8 in Germany. The car belongs to and s a modified Superbee, so it has more than enough power to make mincemeat of the Audi.

You win some, you lose some little Audi!
