Why the E53 should have at least included the C43 to make it a fair comparison. Although the M340i would have still been on top.

Usually the lineups never make sense because they race cars they currently have on hand versus them waiting for a manufacture to send an adequate competitor.

Not going to lie, my money was on the S4 due to the torque but wow that M340i is a rocket.

It's interesting to see what different cars can do, the other 3 are the same price/size so we get to see how the different approaches bare out, petrol/hybrid vs diesel vs petrol.

It's not about fairness it's just a bit of fun....

1/4 mile times are not correct in my opinion in this video.
12.7 for the M340?

13.6 for the Audi..

My F31 330d 258hp is 13.8 stock

There is something wrong...

I'm not surprised that it won.... I'm just surprised that it won by THAT much! It absolutely destroyed everything else. I'm thinking a C43 would be closer competition, but still.

Holy mother of god, that 340i is really freaking impressive. When I saw the BHP and torque numbers I thought the BMW didn't stand a chance at winning the race, but it took off like a spaceship! I'm not really into racing, but watching this made my heart warm. I don't have a 340i, but knowing that we're in the same family is good enough to feel happy after watching this video

C43 would not have changed the result, it would have been slaughtered nonetheless.

330i in car and driver's recent test vs the Giulia did the 1/4 mile in 13.8 at 100mph. Wouldn't have been too far behind the Volvo and Audi. all with a measly 255 HP

The torque advantage is really only relevant in first gear in a drag race or if you are accelerating from 2000-4000rpm. This is when a diesel needs to shift and loses the mechanical advantage of the gear ratio and the petrol just keeps revving to 6000rpm or so and makes up a huge amount around that point. Then of course the petrol will spend the rest of the race above 4000rpm right on max power.

This is why the Audi is quite good for the first part of the rolling race, then it needs to change up and just falls back compared to the E53

Newly redesigned M340i is back on top after being pitted against the best during development. Are any of the others new for 2019? Only just lost to the Audi in braking.
