If you had read people were jumping off bridges, would you do it too?

The M3, with a proper driver, will easily do that, and faster. The Challenger, more due to its weight, takes a little getting used to when launching.

Cool car, interesting to drive, but not faster than the M3. Maybe if you're at highway speeds it'll take you.
You sure about that?

Anyone want to set the record straight on this claim? I'm here for you guys.

His is a manual and he is more the a competent stick driver... His challenger is his work car and by far the slowest cars he has ever owned.. My M3 is DCT and i know that plays big part in it

If we were on a race track or a drag strip, I'd be more than happy to prove it. Challengers are great and fun cars, just extremely heavy from a dig.

Maybe it was modded- it certainly is cheaper and easier to squeeze xtra HP out of American cars.

I'm pretty sure it's a driver's race between the M3 and any of the SRT-10 cars (challenger, charger, 300) if the M3 is a 6MT. Wouldn't be surprised if the DCT will slowly walk them all, but it should be close.
