German Autobild has done a comparison of the Audi A8 4.2 against the BMW 750xi. And there’s a clear winner in terms of performance, and we are not surprised!
But when i comes to performance, the Audi edges out the BMW in every major aspect. Despite the BMW’s bigger and torque-laden turbocharged motor, the Audi is faster. It accelerates to 100km/h in 5.2 seconds, while the 750i does it in 5.5. The difference in fuel economy is even greater with the Audi burning 11.4L/100km and the BMW with 14.1L/100km. Braking in the Audi is better as well. All this does not come as a huge surprise when one compares the weight of these cars. The A8 is 220kg, or almost 500lbs lighter than the 7-series.
