Audi A1 quattro vs Nissan GT-R

Neither one would be my choice of cars, but after watching this video, Audi wins it...
You judge.. A1 wins it by 5 sec.

Any AWD car with at least 250HP on that circuit can intimidate a GTR easily.

Introduce short and long straight away and that A1 will get walked on.

Top gear had the same idea with Evo FQ400 vs Lambo and that FQ400 was able to intimidate the lambo around the top gear track.

The A1 quattro is not a bad car, but you can tell both drivers were not properly trained. You can easily tell by the lines, braking and throttle.
At the first part when Vicky`s driving the GTR, look at how often she brakes. She might know the concept of driving but is obviously not doing it properly.

Second part when the guy`s driving, pay close attention to his throttle. He`s gassing it the same way he was on the A1, on a WET road.

Either way, let`s just say they`re both professional drivers. When you throw 2 cars on a wet tarmac with lots of turns, it doesn`t matter how much hp/torque you have, it`s all about grip and handling. I`m sure in a situation like this, even if you throw in a standard ralliart lancer or a standard wrx, they`ll be able to do as well as the A1.

Tires....thats it

GTR track pack : Cup Tires, with minimum rain tracks.
Audi A1: street tires, with rain tracks

If both cars had the same tires, GTR would win.

They switch cars

And for the final time attack, it was the same driver

The rear on the A1 is hideous. Can't they have made it one colour?

All you GT-R owners, sell your lame car now before this video goes viral. You don't want to be embarassed out on the streets by cars like the A1.
I'll even do you a huge favour and purchase the GT-R from you for $20k. That's way more than what the car will be worth once everyone realizes how inferior it is.
Any takers?

The thing about the A1 Quattro is apparently it's much more rare than the GT-R :)

Rain is the great equalizer in motorsports. Driver skill usually prevails and not the car underneath you.

Look at any major form of racing and you will see some unusual winners when it's wet.

It's the tires, and driver skill wont matter when your tires have no grip.

And, it's easy to reproduce this test. Run a GTR on performance tires in the winter and watch Corollas on winter tires run circles around the GTR.

I'm waiting for the 'we've strapped a herd of live cattle to this GTR' race. Autocar is going down the road of silly these days.
