Time for another interesting drag race from the folks over at CarWow, this time featuring three previous-generation performance cars, each powered by a naturally aspirated V8.

Yes, the UK-based channel has managed to bring together an E90-generation M3 sedan, a W204-generation Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG saloon and a B8-generation Audi RS4 Avant.

As a reminder, this version of the M3 employs a free-breathing 4,0-litre V8, while the C63 AMG uses a larger 6,2-litre V8. While these two performance sedans are rear-driven, the RS4’s 4,2-litre eight-cylinder directs its urge to all four wheels.

Watch the video above (enjoy the varied V8 soundtrack!) to see the three contenders do battle in a straight line, race from a rolling start and take part in a brake test...
