Street Race R8 vs M3 vs 335i vs RS4

The first race was expected, the second looked like a non-stock car was involved and the final race to me at least shows what I already knew, that the orginal Quattro system is still the best for traction.

Nice video. I would like to know if that was a DCT M3 or MT. I can tell you that 335 is not stock. That looked like what I would expect from a V3 335.

I honestly don't understand the current generation of car buyers.

Why are people buying any of these cars if you want to drag race? It doesn't make since.

Nice vid. Thanks.

About the comment on why drag race. These cars are fast compared to past models. Why would one not want to see who's car accelerates better in a real world comparison.
