Watch A Showdown Between Audi's Greatest Performance Cars And A Ducati

Audi may have gotten a bit lazy with their design, but they still make pretty fantastic performance cars. And while the American market was denied some of the best RS models, you can enjoy Audi’s top performers all in one video—and a Ducati shows up for good measure.


The folks over at CarWow managed to get the original RS2 Avant in addition to the S1, RS3, RS6 Avant, R8 V10 Plus and a Ducati 959 Panigale (because Audi technically makes that too, at least for now) all together on the same airstrip to illustrate how Audi’s quattro division has evolved over the years.

And of course, they pit the cars and the sportbike against each other for an epic drag race.

Which one is your favorite? For me, it is a toss up between the classic RS2 and the monster RS6.
