Drag Race: Audi RS 3 vs BMW M2

words: Bill Cho, video: Cars.co.az Yesterday, we brought you the RS 3 sedan vs the Mercedes-Benz A45 AMG drag race by Cars.co.az. In that video, they mentioned the drag race between the RS 3 and the BMW M2. That got us looking for the other video and it did not disappoint. Cars.co.az had compared the two vehicles in the past. When their fans complained that the presenters never raced them, they decided to have a rematch. They had a small problem though. BMW did not have an M2 for them ...

R8 V10 vs RS 4…on a ski slope

words: Bill Cho, video: Magnus Gustavsen As part of the country digs itself out from Winter Storm Grayson (the bomb cyclone), I'm sitting in my nice warm office watching YouTube videos of Audis bombing (see what I did there?) through the snow and feeling a little envious. We only got about 2 inches here in eastern Pennsylvania...enough to have some fun but not like these guys. This video was uploaded 2 years ago. It's an odd one as it shows an R8 V10 and an RS 4 racing up and down a...

AutoTopNL: TT RS vs BMW M2 0-250km/h Acceleration and Top Speed Autobahn POV Video

words: Bill Cho, video: AutoTopNL Recently, AutoTopNL took a TT RS and an M2 out on the Autobahn for an acceleration and top speed test. The M2 is powered by the 370hp N55 engine and the TT RS has the 400hp 2.5 5 cylinder.
