Audi RS3 Sportback v BMW 1 Series M Coupe Drag Race - Auto Express

Full review: http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/carreviews/grouptests/269563/bmw_1m_coupe_vs_rivals.html Pocket rockets from BMW and Audi go head-to-head in a drag race shoot out over the quarter mile. But which is fastest? The BMW 1M Coupe and Audi RS3 have two things in common... Power. Each offers an identical 335bhp and 450Nm of torque. However, they are two very different beasts. The Audi's 2.5-litre five cylinder turbo drives all four wheels via a seven speed dual clutch automatic gearbox. The BMW on the other hand has a 3.0-litre straight six twin-turbo. And it sends all its power to the rear wheels via a good ol' fashioned six-speed manual.

Honda CR-Z Mugen Hybrid v Ariel Atom Mugen - Auto Express
Full review: http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/videos/videoreviews/269185/mugen_vs_mugen_revi ew.html#ixzz1QBbY7ovl Mugen is a company that doesn't do things by half -- and lately Honda's tuning arm has been extremely busy. The world's most skeletal car, the Ariel Atom has been given a power Boost without the need for a Supercharger. The result is a 270bhp output from its 2.0-litre Honda-sourced engine that makes it just about the fastest thing on four wheels. Alongside the Atom Mugen we drove the CR-Z Mugen -- currently a one-off tuned version of the hybrid coupe.





Lamborghini Aventador vs Ferrari FF Drag Race
It's not uncommon for us to drag race cars on a runway. But we've never done it at an active airport with passenger jets taking off and landing in the background. And so we leapt at the chance to take part in Race the Runway at Edinburgh Airport. The event, sponsored by Mercedes, was held to raise money for the Prince and Princess of Wales Hospice and the Scottish Burned Children's Club. In total 25 cars, ranging from a Lamborghini Aventador to a TVR Tuscan, took part. Entrants were timed over a 1,350-metre course on one of the taxi runways. We would be driving an SLS GT, which, at 199mph, has the highest top speed of any current production Mercedes. So how did it fare against the competition? Watch the video and find out. The cars included: Lamborghini Aventador Ferrari FF Porsche 911 turbo (997) Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder Mercedes SL63 AMG Performance Mercedes SLS GT Nissan Skyline R33 GT-R Mercedes E63 AMG S BMW M6 BMW M3 GTS Audi RS6 (MkI) TVR Tuscan Ferrari 599 GTB HGTE Subscribe to our YouTube channel http://bit.ly/11Ad1j1 Subscribe to the mag http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/yt





BMW M135i vs Mercedes A45 AMG review - Auto Express
Mercedes A45 AMG review: http://bit.ly/ZIf71Q BMW M135i review: http://bit.ly/12lsvKI Subscribe to our YouTube channel http://bit.ly/11Ad1j1 Subscribe to the mag http://subscribe.autoexpress.co.uk/yt Premium car manufacturers have traditionally stayed away from hot hatch market, but that's no longer the case. In this video review we have the BMW M135i, and we are testing it against the Mercedes A45 AMG - with a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine it's going to be a stern rival for the BMW. The BMW gets a six-cylinder engine, revs to 7000rpm but peak torque is at just 1300rpm, so it has instant power. It does come in manual, but we've got the eight-speed automatic gearbox. We took it around our track in just 1 minute 14 seconds. As for the Mercedes, it's £5,000 more expensive than the BMW, so that's something to consider straight away. It's got 40bhp more, but the same torque. It's a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine, and a dual-clutch gearbox. It's four-wheel drive, meaning body control is really good around the corners - but, on the flip side, the ride is quite stiff. It did beat the BMW around the track though, in a final time of 1 minute, 13 seconds. So, which hatchback comes out on top? If you want to be the fastest against the stopwatch, with amazing body control, choose the Mercedes. But, if you want to spend less money and have more fun, go for the BMW.

Audi RS5 vs BMW M3 review - Auto Express
Full review: http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/carreviews/grouptests/258376/audi_rs5_vs_bmw_m 3.html When it comes to sporting heritage, few marques can match Audi and BMW. Both have succeeded in the white heat of competition, and proved that the race track and rally stage are the best proving grounds for new products.
