V8 drag race! BMW M3 (E90) vs. C63 AMG (W204) vs. Audi RS4 Avant (B8)…

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…
