Quite the Surprise at the Drag Strip
When an Audi B5 S4 and a Bugatti Chiron pulled up at the drag racing strip, many people may have suspected a Chiron victory. But, to everyone’s surprise, the Audi B5 S4 ends up outperforming the Bugatti. Beginning with a rolling start, both cars stroll forward. From there, the gas pedals mash. Both cars accelerate aggressively down the track. Somehow, that B5 S4 is keeping up, and passing! To no surprise, the B5 S4 contains enough mods to add over 1,000 horsepower to the base power level. Defeating the 8th fastest production vehicle is no easy task, so props to the S4 owner! This occurred at the SCC500 Rolling 50 1000 event in Germany.
Audi B5 S4 Specifications
Unfortunately, the Audi B5 S4’s performance mods are not readily available to discuss. But, there is an estimation that this car pushes 1,300 horsepower! Phew! That’s fast! Obviously, the car sports BBS wheels, a lowering kit, and a ton of modifications under the hood. This B5 S4 goes by the name “ARLOWS”. Since all modifications aren’t known, let’s review the basics of the base model.
The Audi B5 S4 was an amazing car in the past, and still is today. Starting with a 2.7-liter twin-turbo V6 engine, this car produces 261 horsepower and 295 lb.-ft. of torque. Being such a small, lightweight car has its perks. The newer models are blatantly larger, to the point the modern A4 is the size of the A6 of this generation, if not bigger. From 0 to 60 mph, the stock B5 S4 takes only 5.6 seconds. With a top speed of 155.3 mph, this car is a beast from the past. This car has always been a mod dream car due to the build being accessible for massive growth in ability.
Bugatti Chiron Specifications
The Bugatti Chiron is the 8th fastest production vehicle in the world. So, being beat by an Audi B5 S4 may have been shocking for the owner. But, in reality, many cars can reach this level of power with modifications. Regardless, cars like the Chiron are hypercars meant to be respected at an entirely higher level. The black with red secondary color Chiron in the video has a 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 engine.
This motor runs in conjunction with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. Producing a whopping 1,479 horsepower, this car is a beast. But, the S5 is a much lighter car, especially with mods and reductions. From 0 to 60 mph, the Chiron takes only 2.5 seconds. No wonder this car is a dream for many!
And… the B5 S4 Wins!

2018 Audi RS3 vs. RS4 Avant vs. RS5
The 2018 Audi RS3, RS4, and RS5 are popular vehicle considerations for many drivers worldwide. Although slightly different vehicles, they can be seen as slightly competitive with each other. The RS4 is a small sedan while the RS4 is an avant and the RS5 is a coupe. Although these cars vary across MSRP and other factors, they have similarities as well. In this article, we will go over each of the models and their basics.
2018 Audi RS3
First, the 2018 Audi RS3 starts at a MSRP of $54,900. The RS3 sports a 2.5-liter five cylinder engine with 400 horsepower and 354 lb.-ft. of torque. With this power, the RS3 can hit 0 to 60 mph in only 3.9 seconds. On top of that, the RS3 can hit a whopping 174 mph, if you’re willing to pay Audi for the tune. The RS3 is sold with S sport seats wrapped in Fine Nappa leather with diamond stitching. The RS3 also comes with full LED headlights, magnetic ride, and an average 22 miles per gallon.
2018 Audi RS4 Avant
Second, the 2018 Audi RS4 Avant is expected to cost an estimated $67,685 at MSRP. The RS4 Avant withholds a twin-turbo 2.9-liter V6 engine producing 450 horsepower and 443 lb.ft. of torque. Unfortunately, the RS4 Avant will not make its way stateside and will only be sold in Europe. Slightly slower than the RS3, the RS4 Avant can hit 62 mph in only 4.1 seconds – quick for a station-wagon. As with the RS3, the top speed is limited to ~150 mph, or 174 mph if you pay for it. The interior is a slight upgrade from the RS3 but contains a similar style and Fine Nappa cross-stitched seats.
2018 Audi RS5
Third and last, the 2018 Audi RS5 is expected to run between $70,000 and $80,000 statewide while in Europe it is currently 80,900 euros ($85,495). The RS5 contains the same motor as the RS4 Avant, a 2.9-liter V6 twin-turbo engine producing 450 horsepower and 442 lb.-ft. of torque. Surprisingly, the RS5 can hit 60 mph in only 3.9 seconds, matching the RS3 and faster than the RS4 Avant. The RS5 will have front and rear five-link suspension as well as a few options. The options include a RS sports suspension with adaptive dampers, carbon ceramic breaks, and dynamic steering.
RS Models Stunning Display of German Engineering
Overall, the 2018 Audi RS3, RS4, and RS5 are a stunning display of German engineering. From the RS3’s reasonable price and speed to the RS5’s options, Audi stepped up the game for 2018. The RS3 and the RS5 both hit 60 mph in only 3.9 seconds, 0.2 seconds faster than the RS4 Avant. This difference is most likely due to the additional weight of the station wagon design. In the end, the RS model that is right for you comes down to your personal preferences and desires.
