Its much closer than I thought. Thought that quattro would launch and keep going.

If you are interested in something, No matter what it is
Go at it full speed
Embrace it with both arms
Love it
Live it
Be it
Above all become passionate about it

All that power and Audi RS3 still can't open gaps

Who knows, maybe the M2 starts to close after the 400M omg waiting Either way, the M2 is better looking by miles.

Wonder what that outcome would be, would be interesting to see

RE: BMW M2 vs New Audi RS3 - Drag Race
I like the idea of the M2 being so close to the RS3, but I’m afraid the driver of the RS3 must’ve made a complete hash of the launch...

Mark Jones tested the same car at Gerotek and got 3.83s 0-100km/h and a 12.00s 1/4-mile..Hammerhead

I see that the M2 is heavier than the all-wheel drive AUdi , always thought it would be the other way around , if it is so then BMW must send their M cars on a diet .

I dont know about that, I rather have a car that can be fast have awesome track ability and still provide comfort without compromising quality just for straight line speed Cthulhu

You throw out weight and you disrupt the cars 50/50 balance, it would negatively affect track times as well.

Lucky they didn't use the RS3 sedan. That would have been embarrassing.

Myself and M&M vboxxed a stock one at 12 flat with both of us in it, and then 2 11.8 runs with me alone in it.

That’s the same one that Mark Jones (Truespeed) tested. He got 12.0s on the 1/4-mile as well.

How does the sedan differ from the sportback/hatch though? They should all be pretty damn close in terms of performance seeing as the motor/box/diff etc. is identical.

Im not impressed by the Audi. Its just down to traction. To gauge the true power they should do a rolling run, say from 60 kph. This is where you will truly gauge which car is faster.

Do yourself a favour, go drive the RS3 sedan yourself and if you still unimpressed I will be very surprised.

Here are the specs as tested for the RS3 sedan and the M2. The M2 holds its own against the RS3 on some of those in gear acceleration runs -

I take nothing away from the Audi but it does have a weight and power advantage yet the M2 is so close, so credit has to go to the M2. In addition, VW/Audi have been know to under quote power figures. For the RS3 to achieve the the times that it did with Mark Jones, I wont be surprised it makes 294 wkw.

RE: BMW M2 vs New Audi RS3 - Drag Race
Objectively over that distance the gap is substantial. The cars are playing in the same segment, splitting hairs over the weight, traction, power advantage the Audi has can be mitigated by the additional capacity and cylinder the BMW has...the arguments can go on...for now credit where due RS3 is damn impressive.

You can considerably minimize the effect of traction and weight by looking at the 100-200 km/h times, you can clearly see which car is faster... 2 seconds at those speeds is far from close:
If both cars start at 100 km/h and the race ends when the M2 reaches 200 km/h, then the theoretical gap is greater than 100 m.
(also known as "light poles" by debbin spectators)

+1


At 200km/h the RS3 will be 2.22s ahead, so that will equate to 123m. That is an absolute hiding no matter how you look at it.

For straight line speed the Audi is damn fast, would like to see the outcome on the track.
