Drag race! BMW Z4 M40i roadster vs. Toyota GR Supra coupé

Yes, it’s another intriguing drag race from the folks over at CarWow in the United Kingdom. This time, they’ve lined up two closely related vehicles: the BMW Z4 M40i and the Toyota GR Supra.

Of course, these two sportscars were co-developed by BMW and Toyota, and share the German brand’s B58 3,0-litre straight-six engine, which directs 250 kW and 500 N.m to the rear axle via an eight-speed automatic transmission.

It’s worth noting the Z4 roadster is a little bit heavier than the Supra coupé (which is set to launch in South Africa towards the middle of July), although in UK-spec the difference is a mere 40 kg.

Watch the video above to see the Z4 and Supra drag race (twice, for good measure), compete from a rolling start and take part in a braking test…
