Only 0.1sec quicker than the 6 year old BMW M3 which has less power and is rear wheel drive...

I have yet to see a single drag race where the M3 has been able to produce a 12.0... it always can’t put down the power. More like 12.4-12.6 for the M3

And youtube drag racing videos prove something? Lol

What they reveal is an accurate elapsed time based on the conditions at the time ie. track prep, with or without, density altitude etc. which means that 1/4 mile times can vary significantly depending on conditions. In addition there needs to be proof that the cars haven't been modified to be valid :)

Of course 1/4 mile times can vary. We compare the best possible times here on fastestlaps though

Sure man, I get an Audi RS5, and you get a M3, let me give you a 0.1s deduction on your time. Let’s meet at some random straight road. I’ll put $100,000 to your $50000.

Same day same conditions. Side by side.

Lol did you even watch your video, your RS5 got utterly destroyed on the rolling race aka any real world highway race.

Also let's meet on some random curvy road and the RS5 will get embarrassed even harder:

You can't be sure about which one would be faster on a curvy road. For example at the Kakucsring ( https://fastestlaps.com/tracks/kakucsring ), that's basicly a go-kart track, the RS5 was about as fast (0:46,654) as an M4 Competiton - with aftermarket suspension and Remus exhaust system (0:46,703).

I don’t see any lap times there but when you look at the comparo even the base model M4 (non-Competition or CS) is much faster around track and notably faster on straight.

Maybe I forgot to post the link for more lap times at that track. If it's so, then sorry. I try to do it now: https://infogram.com/laptiming_results-1hnp271jwlen2gq?live

And it looks like the correct fastestlaps-site of the track-configuration where those times were recorded is this (still no RS5 or M4 laptime): https://fastestlaps.com/tracks/kakucs-ring
