\"The M3 in that video is the E93 convertible not the coupe so a bit slower and it didn\'t use launch control so could have been a manual which is also a bit slower than the DCT/DKG\".

Agree with you Wads , if the M3 is cabrio i think it will have no chance against the S8.Not bad for a 4-door Audi.
