U-Drag Race: M3 Competition (50 Jahre Edition) vs M8 Competition

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
This was just posted on Edmunds Cars' YouTube. I'm happy with the results. Though I've seen a lot of 3sec flat from 0-60. In both races they were at 3.3s

Edit: removed results due to spoilers

Incredible for 50k less. Imagine what 50k of performance mods would get the m3 to match price points.

I agree, I'm not a sedan guy so I'd have to take the M4 instead but the presence the new design has while on the road is great.

Seeing both generations of grills together and I am strangely liking the M3 grill more than the M8.

2 different ways to enjoy an M...

U Drag is an interesting process with the drag, quarter pull, G test and roller all in one... Entertaining and the results are in line with the specs/weight.

Both mine

Think you could put a cone in the road, drive away 1/4 mile, and then launch, do a U turn, and come back while timing it then switch cars and do it again? Id watch your video if you do it.

I love this format of racing with the turn and return. Its brilliant.

That starter though with the choppy arm movement drove me crazygo from the top of the arm drop, not some jerky downward sweep with the cars starting at the bottom lol

They are ... all Jahre's are X drives.

Unless you have seen one that is not?

All M8's are X drives-- there is no rwd iteration. (just like the F90 M5)

You just like wasting my time sir ... your use of the word elated is a farce.

Did you make that move we discussed about a few weeks ago?
