This is from Series 27, Episode 6 of Fifth Gear. Clip 1 was released as a YouTube teaser but the full video was not aired in North America.

Thank you for posting the videos! I was the drag video a while back and glad to be able to see the other 2. I'm surprised to hear that both reviewers seem to think the 2 cars ride about the same. I'd have thought the RS would ride and absorb bumps much better.

If they're testing the cars - should take operator variability out of the test if they can.

Drag racing? - That really depends on the driver getting a start. They should really just clock them from leaving the line to the finish, although I imagine most will find it "unexciting".

GT-R gets the initial jump as expected with it's AWD and launch control, but RS still takes it at the end!
