the all-new BMW 1 Series M Coupe. The BMW 1M Coupe and Audi RS3 have two
things in common... Power. Each offers an identical 335bhp and 450Nm of
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.
While the 1M is rumored to redline at around 7,000 rpm, the RS3 is able to
rev up to 6,800 rpm.
The RS3 sprints to 100km/h (62mph) in 4.6 seconds. Top speed is
electronically limited to 250km/h (155mph). The compact car weighs in at
only 1,575 kilograms (3,472 pounds). On the other hand, the 1M is rumored
to run to 62 mph in 4.7 seconds and weigh in at 1611 kg (3,552 pounds).
So, who takes the win home?
