BMW M3 smokes Audi R8!! :)

I found this video on youtube. It's a V8 M3 Manual vs V8 R8...i was quite stunned to see Audi's supposed "supercar" beat by BMW's deceptive M...




Thought it'd be cool to share for all the M3 fans on this forum; I apologize in case it is a re-post.

Really? Both cars have similar power and similar weight, what's so surprising?

Since when a supercar is defined only by performance anyways?

M3 was definitely catching up, but then it sounded like the R8 lifted before the M3 came around.

Still... the M3 is a great car, huh? That close and the R8 has virtually zero utility.

Not surprised. However it doesn't change the fact that the R8 looks and sounds great.

Yeah, a classic video. Not suprising as this is just a high speed run with 2 cars of similar power and weight, this probably all comes down to reaction time, etc.

The V8 R8 is faster around a road track as proven by runs on Top Gear test track, Nurburgring, and Road and Track 2009 test on Auto-X, oval, and road race:

http://www.roadandtrack.com/tests/co...ate-track-test

This is a better comparison as the cars are driven by the same driver in each test

I love the M3, but when I seen the R8...damn! That car is gorgeous, regardless if the M3 can beat it. However, I do guess looks are subjective...

I've been into one during our Skills Day class, and that car is amazing. I love the M3, but R8 sounds so much better. I might be wrong, but it felt like it has less body roll as well.
