AutoExpress compares the BMW 1M Coupe to the Audi RS3 around the roadcourse with timed laps
You may remember that AutoExpress drag raced the 1M against the DSG RS3 a few months back
. In that comparison, the Audi won by virtue of its dual clutch transmission and all wheel drive launch although the 1M had the higher trap speed. This time both cars are taken around a road course and the 1M just flat out crushes the Audi by almost 2 seconds on what is a fairly short track. The driver mentions the Audi is heavier and more of a car for beginners with understeer versus the 1M which is more nimble and often requires the throttle to correct the tail stepping out.
