The Audi RS7 Just Had A Race Against An Elevator: Seriously

How does this super-sedan stack up against the fastest elevator in the world?

The United Arab Emirates' Burj Khalifa is the tallest man-made structure in the world. At a sky-penetrating 2,722 feet tall, this skyscraper boasts 57 elevators which can rise and fall at a blistering rate of 33 feet per second. In this official video from Audi, the RS7 goes up against this elevator system by racing down the Jebel Hafeet mountain road. This is part of a video series called “Audi Challenges Arabia.” While this is exciting footage, does this experiment really compare apples to apples?

We’re not so confident about that, but it’s still an amusing challenge, even if the German automaker is just using it as an excuse to show off the dynamic and energetic RS7 four-door
