The new BMW M3 Touring is finally here, so of course we’ve got in on the drag strip. But can it give a car from the class above a run for its money?
Mat’s behind the wheel of the M3 Touring today. Under the bonnet is a 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged straight-six with 510hp and 650Nm of torque driving all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic gearbox. The BMW weighs in at 1,865kg, and it costs £85,465.
That’s a lot cheaper than the Audi RS6 it’s going up against, that car costs £112,650. Then again it is from the class above, under the bonnet is a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 with 600hp and 800Nm of torque. This is sent to all four wheels via an eight speed automatic gearbox, and the Audi tips the scales at 2,075kg.
Audi has been the king of performance estate cars for years, but can BMW swoop in and beat it at its own game? You’ll have to watch the video to find out.
