[Video] RWD BMW M3 Competition Versus Audi RS5

The all-wheel-drive BMW M3 Competition models should be rolling off the assembly lines by July. But, for the time being, let’s see how the rear-wheel-drive M3 stacks up against the Audi RS5, which is one of its main competitors. Despite the fact that it may be a bit of a stretch. That’s because the M4 is the ideal BMW rival for the RS5 Coupe. However, given that the RS4 is only available in Avant trim and the M3 Touring has yet to be released, it’s still exciting to have a 4-door vs 2-door race. Moreover, there shouldn’t be much of a difference because the M3 and M4 are nearly identical in terms of performance, and the weight difference is only about 70 kilograms.

As a result,  the Quattro all-wheel-drive system of the Audi RS5 is the most favorable significant advantage for its side of the competition. The car can put the power down more efficiently because of this, giving it an edge when launching. The 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 engine under the hood of the RS5 produces 450 HP and 600 Nm of torque. Through an 8-speed automatic transmission, the Audi RS5 sends all power to the wheels.

The BMW M3 Competition can be found on the other side of the strip. In a straight line, the BMW has six cylinders as well, for a total displacement of 3 liters. Its two turbos force it to deliver 510 HP and 650 Nm of torque to the rear wheels. The BMW M3 Competition performs via an 8-speed automatic transmission. As a result, the BMW carries approximately an additional 60 horsepower. But the question is, can this power of the M3 Competition be enough to win against the RS5? There’s no other way to know this but to watch the video. Check out how the new BMW M3 Competition performs in this video by MotoristSA.
