What’s the best getaway car? GRiP Magazine seeks to find out.

Now this is the type of video that I wished would have been shot in the United States (it’s in German). GRiP Magazine felt the need to answer a specific question for its viewers. If you were being chased down by the German Police, what car would you choose as your getaway vehicle. The goal of each car chase is pretty obvious; get to the finish line before the officer in the nice little BMW catches you and tosses your ass in jail. The outlaw players in the bunch are an Audi TT-RS tuned by MTM, a Dodge Challenger SRT8 that I think is supercharged and what looks to be a Porsche Cayenne Turbo S tuned by Techart. Each ride has distinct advantages and even more prominent faults over the BMW, so to be fair make sure you jot down your choice before hitting the play button to see if you were correct.

    BMW vs Audi, the Audi was handling like it was on rails, the BMW was oversteering like crazy, yet it seemed to be a very close match. That says a lot for the BMW, especially when you consider it was a diesel.

    I don’t think it’s a coincidence that the “best get away cars” were German, in Germany. If you couldn’t outrun a diesel BMW in a supercharged Dodge Challenger, there’s something seriously wrong. Still, a very good watch, thanks for finding it!

    Have to disagree with you on that, Set. It is a fact that American muscle cars tend to be overpowered and heavyweight, so they’re great for driving fast on straightforward streets, but do not handle well when driving through curves fast.

    I would choose something similiar to the Audi for a getaway car, fast and with good handling, and a balanced horsepower-to-weight-ratio…

    Lovely video though, especially because of the fact that all cars are tuned by famous tuning companies (at least here in Germany)
