Video: Top Gear Rewind - Audi RS6 (C5) vs. Mercedes E55 AMG

. Monday, March 28, 2011

Being huge Top Gear fans, we like to get our fix of Clarkson, May and Hammond between seasons via the many vintage clips uploaded to YouTube. One such clip is this comparo from season one; featuring Clarkson's test of the then new, 2002 Audi RS6 versus the 2002 Mercedes Benz E55 AMG. Although the clip stops just short of the Stig-tested track times, the RS6 managed a time of 1 minute 33 seconds on a very wet track, with the E55 clocking a 1.35.5.
