Think a tuned Kia Stinger can take on the new Audi RS5 Sportback?

Such a beauty but nearly double the price of the Stinger.

I wondered the same thing recently when I came upon one and we were side by side on a deserted road. I'm running a JB4 on map 3 and have supporting breathing mods and would have been willing to find out, but thankfully he wasn't interested.

I'm not crazy about the Audi's looks but it sounds amazing. And after struggling to put down power in this cold weather, I have a new appreciation for AWD performance cars.

Both Audi and MB have really gotten their engines and exhausts to sound perfectly.

[MENTION=48]TurboTx[/MENTION] I think you would've had him running that map on the JB4 with your mods.

Yeah from a roll they aren't as formidable. There's a clip on youtube of the rs5 coupe going against a c63 and m4; it crushed them both from a dig but was walked from a roll. That gives me hope, if I should ever meet another one on a Mexican highway.

They sure have. They both proved you can make a TT V6 sound amazing. Ours sounds good too, I just wish we had the same exhaust crackles when changing gears.
