Carwow, the online platform for selling vehicles, invited us back to their show to test the power and weight of four different SUVs. We sent our engineer Dylan Narsing down with a set of European made axle weigh pads to test a BMW, Lambo, Porsche and Audi. 

First to be tested was the Audi RSQ8, which is powered by a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 said to produce 600hp and 800Nm of torque. 

Next up was the BMW X5 Competition, with its 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 claimed to offer 625hp and 800Nm of torque. 

The third SUV they tested was the Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT. Using a very similar 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 to the Audi, it’s claimed to kick out 640hp and 850Nm. 

Last but not least was the Lamborghini Urus Performante. Again using a version of the V8 found in the Audi and Porsche, it’s said to deliver 666hp and 850Nm. 

Will any cars outperform their claimed figures? Or even worse, will any underperform?! Watch the video to see for yourself!  


What are Vehicle Weighing Pads?

Vehicle Weighing Pads are a convenient solution for quickly and accurately calculating the loads on different types of vehicles, including lorries, vans, and HGVs. These pads are particularly useful for checking individual axles and ensuring that the total gross weight of the vehicle does not exceed the maximum limit. 

By using two weigh pads, an axle weighing system can be easily set up to provide precise load measurements with an accuracy of 0.5%. Knowing the weight of your vehicle is important for safe and legal travel on public roads, and our Dini Argeo and Intercomp vehicle weighing pads offer a simple and reliable method of doing so. 

The portability of these pads allows them to be easily transported from one site to another or stored away when not in use. Investing in weigh pads can help avoid costly fines for overloaded vehicles, which can sometimes exceed the cost of the pads themselves.
