compare it! BMW 1-Series M vs. Audi RS3 | drive it
Two lightweight contenders with the punch of a heavyweight, as the BMW
1-Series M Coupé and the Audi RS3 face off. The dynamic duo certainly have
one thing in common: a sumptuous output of 250 kilowatts.In the Audi's case
it's delivered by the reborn legendary 5-cylinder engine, whose modern
direct injection and turbocharger give
it a peak torque of 450 Newton meters. That's matched by the BMW, albeit
thanks to a 6-cylinder unit with twin turbochargers. An overBoost function can be activated to raise the
torque by a further 50 Newton meters. Both make the dash from zero to 100
kilometers an hour in under 5 seconds.

M3 vs C63 AMG
There has been a lot of disputes which one is faster. We all know the M3 is faster around the track but in a straight
line the C63 seems to take the lead.
Fifth Gear: Audi RS3 vs. BMW 1-Series M
Fifth Gear UK and its famous host Tiff Needell compares the Audi RS3 versus
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?
