Ariel Atom V8 vs 600bhp rallycross Citroen DS3 vs BMW HP4 superbike drag race - autocar.co.uk
Which is faster? An Ariel Atom V8
track day toy, BMW HP4 superbike or a rallycross Citroen DS3 with 600bhp?
SUBSCRIBE to Autocar:
Here we have three completely different ways of going extremely quickly in
a straight line. Time for a drag race then. So what are the contenders?
There's the one-wheel drive BMW HP4 superbike, which arguably requires the
most skill to extract speed from but has a ludicrous 757bhp/tonne
power-to-weight ratio. Then there's the two-wheel drive Ariel Atom V8 with
748bhp/tonne and the Citroen DS3 Rallycross car with only 577bhp/tonne but
all-important four-wheel drive. Oh, and did we mention it's wet?

Can a supercar beat a superbike? Can a Audi A1 outrun a Nissan GT-R on a
wet circuit? Can a Porsche 911 slay a Corvette on the drag strip? Autocar
pitches the giants of the performance car world against each other to
deliver the all-important verdict.

Audi S4 road racing at Lime Rock Park, May 2011 - GIAC tuned
2002 Audi S4 6-speed driving at Lime Rock Park in CT with the Audi Club.
Note - the camera is mounted on the driver's side foglight, hence why it
appears I'm ~5 feet away from all right-hand turn apexes!
For reference, at the end of the main straight speed is around 120-122 in
5th gear. While running the GIAC programming, I'm in 3rd and 4th around the
rest of the track
This session mods:
GIAC 93 octane program with 1.5 degrees advanced timing (Lemmiwinks)
Vast Water/Methanol injection
ST Coilovers (made by KW)
Vast Stage 3 clutch
Hawk HP Plus brake pads with Motul 600 brake fluid
Sumitomo HTR Z III tires

Modified B5 Audi S4 quattro. A video compilation demonstrating the 2-step
"launch control" feature of my custom VAST performance Stage 3 Frankenturbo tune. When the vehicle is stopped,
the rev limit is set at 4,400 RPM for consistent launching. While holding
this RPM, the turbos can produce up to
about 6 psi with no load.
With this setup, 0-60 mph times in the high 3's are obtainable with a quick
The S4 also has piggie downpipes and a Borla single 3 inch Exhaust system.
Some bonus footage of a coworker who had never ridden in a semi-fast car
before is also included. :-)

2014 Audi S4 Quattro Manual - WR TV POV Test Drive 1/2
This week we row our own gears in a manual gearbox-equipped Audi S4
Quattro. This Misano Red example comes equipped with the Black Optic
package, which includes 19-inch wheels, summer tires and high-gloss black
The S4's 3.0-liter supercharged V6 churns out 333 horsepower and 325
pound-feet of torque and is matched to a close-ratio six-speed transmission
with a dual mass flywheel, which then routes the grunt to a Quattro sports
differential, making for quite an entertaining drive
For the best video experience, we encourage you to wear headphones or
earbuds. The audio in this video was recorded with in-ear binaural
microphones. Because these microphones record sound from inside the ear,
playing the sound through headphones gives the sensation of 3D sound. All
of this translates to a very realistic listening experience.
