BMW i8 vs Audi R8 vs McLaren 570S vs AMG GT C — Roadster Test

In every test, though, the BMW i8 was so far behind the rest of the cars it didn’t even seem fair. Because it wasn’t. We love the i8 Roadster, as it’s a brilliant car to drive on the road. But is not a supercar, that much is evident.

So which is fastest? Well, in a drag race that starts with each car dropping their roofs before taking off, the AMG is the first off the line and, because of that, dominates the race. In the second test, where their roofs are already down, the Audi R8 uses its all-wheel drive to jump every other car but the McLaren ends up being fastest. However, in a rolling drag race, the Mercedes-AMG GT uses its monstrous power and torque to take the win.
