Audi RS6 Avant vs BMW M5 E60. I thought the new 580hp Audi would do better.

Do you know how much power it takes to pull like that at tho's speeds? It's only 80hp more, and while I know the M5 is not exactly light, I bet you the RS6 is heavier still.

Also the Audi quattro four-wheel drive system robs it of power. Ad the extra weight and it plays into the M5's territory. I'm sure if it was from 0-270 the Audi would be further ahead. Those 20" wheels on the M5 did not help it at all.
