M3 vs. RS6

My boss recently purchased an RS6 and wanted to see how it would compare to my m3. After work last thursday, we took our cars to his neighborhood outside of boston and did a few runs. Here's what resulted:

We first tried an off-the-line race. Dang..that thing seriously flies off the line (which I expected, anyway). It also has a seriously sexy exhaust note. I don't think he even brake-torqued(?) from the start, but he had me by a bus length by 60mph. Keep in mind I'm not a very skilled drag racer (though I do know how to power shift). With my launch, however, there's much to be desired.

We then tried a race from a rolling start. We started off between 5 and 10 mph and raced until 60-70. I was acually surprised at the result: I took him by a car length (may have been more or less, I was pumped with adrenalin to get a decent measure). I think he was pretty surprised, as well.

We then did a highway run from around 60 to 110-120. The same result as our second rolling-start race. I think my boss was pretty disappointed after those runs. I have pictures I took with my phone camera, but they're of terrible quality.

The RS6 never struck me to be a very driver-oriented like the M cars, but this car in person is so d@mn sexy.

LOL. He's a really cool guy. I let him tear up the streets in my M before he purchased his RS6. On Monday, he told me he now regrets getting the audi...he said even my M3 was more fun to drive.

ahh..i'm sure he's just going keep it in his stable..along with his 996 turbo and Rover.
