Top Gear: M3 (Comp Pack) vs the Audi RS5

Excruciatingly the person who uploaded the episode split the segment into two pieces meaning you have to find both in the videos below. In the first video the piece starts at 4:40. The second video (after the break) has the end of the Stig testing both. So what wins? Find out after the break.

The M3 by over a second despite the track being wet.

    Of course the M3 will win, no matter what. The letter M has a psychiatric effect to say the least.

    BMW Power

    Unfortunately the BBC has removed the files from YouTube. At least from Germany they’re not accessible anymore. 🙁

  • nope. videos are gone

  • Another great review from top gear (watched it via other means). AUDI is in many ways catching on to BMW but they have a fundamental flaw, Quattro. That single word essentially represents most of the company’s fan base, but it’s the very same item that prevents the car from being a true sports car. Ditching Quatto = self destruction for AUDIO, so they are stuck. Sorry AWD guys… front wheels should be solely dedicated to steering. I am sure somebody will respond with some AWD supercar (R8?) but that’s not the point. It takes a lot more effort to make a AWD car drive fast. More effort = more money, more resources, heavier weight etc.
