We know you’ve been waiting for this one!!
We’ve finally got our hands on the all-new BMW M2 CS! This absolute beast of an M2 comes equipped with the same 3-litre twin-turbo as found in the M4, and as a result, it can put down 450hp & 550Nm of torque!
As for the competition? Well it’s lining up against Mat’s latest long-termer, the AMG A45, and a 2016 RS3! The A45 may only have a 2-litre twin-turbo, but it can still produce 421hp & 500Nm! And as for the RS3, well that’s been tuned so it now produces an awesome 450hp & 750Nm!!
We’ve been waiting for this one for so long, but we couldn’t pick a winner beforehand… Can you?! Let us know what you think in the COMMENTS!

Just an idea but for the brake test why don’t you use a drone for a birds eye view of the cars, easier to see who is further back

How comes the Audi TTRS is never in the race ? It’s lighter and faster than the RS3 would be more fair against an M2

i was expecting the tuned RS3 to do MUCH better, especially at the roll race with that 750Nm torque...

You can tell that the old BMW M division engineer went to Hyundai because in the new Sonata N-line you can also dial down the launch control revs using the cruise control just like in the M2 CS.

Anyone who knows why the Audi RS3 isn't for sale anymore? Thought it was because of new emission standards.
Should we expect this car to be back on sale anytime soon?

Mat, for the carbon ceramic brakes to work properly, you have to get proper heat in them. I’m not sure how much breaking you guys did before the break test and if it was enough to put proper heat into them.
But good race, go BMW👍🏻👍🏻

Hi @Carwow , please check our stage 1 tuned RS3 times. I think the RS3 in your vid is not really making the best out of it. Our stock RS3 did 12.0 on the 1-4 (dragy).. nevertheless, BMW’s rock :)

The Rs3 is a stage two with decats intercooler intake and tune and just barely beat the a45s. The a45s gets to 500hp and 0-100 in 3.3sec with just a stage 1 tune. Would destroy the other two
K.C.E. - Måned siden
The RS3 is very slow for so much mods... 0.1 sec faster than the 45s bone stock... compare stock cars in the same price class. You get a good new A45s for 70k, a M2 costs about 100k. Compare a A45s, a M2 Comp. and and a stock RS3. And the A45s will win ;) believe me

A45s is such a beautiful car. Im an Audi fan with a stage 2 2017 A3. That RS3 is an absolute beast. Just intake,intercooler and tune made 100hp more than stock.

RS3 sounds the best but the M2 is just insane. Wasnt impressed with the A45 at all. I am not an Audi fan but I'd take the RS3 over the A45 any day. The M2 is the car for me though, but I drive a BMW so slightly biased.

BMW packt einfach immer mehr Leistung in seine Motoren, aber was beweist das? Als ob Mercedes oder Audi nicht auch in der Lage wären, einfach irgendwelche "Competition" Versionen mit veränderten Zündwinkel, etwas mehr Ladedruck und dadurch mehr PS herauszubringen, die dann locker gleich schnell wären... also ist der einzige Beweis den BMW erbringt, dass mehr PS bessere Fahrleistungen bedeuten. Bevor ich mir aber solch eine 🤮 Marke kaufe und und mich in ein Döner Taxi setze, fahre ich lieber Straßenbahn.
Andererseits müssen sich Audi und die Frage gefallen lassen, warum bringt ihr nicht auch einfach Sondereditionen mit extra PS auf den Markt?
