Video: F80 BMW M3 Competes BMW 1M Coupe in Drag Race

A video with a drag race between the hot ride F80 BMW M3 and the little BMW 1M has recently popped–out on the web, showcasing the two sports cars racing against each other.

Well, let`s have a look at the specifications of the two models and mind that even if the 1M is the smaller brother, don’t think that it doesn’t come with suitable power for the almighty M3 Sedan.

First off, the big difference between the two of them is that the F80 BMW M3 is packing a 3.0-liter six-cylinder unit, and that on the stock model, without any engine upgrades, which develops 425 horsepower and 550 Nm of torque, hooked to a 7-speed M DCT.


On the other hand the BMW 1M is smaller and lighter, which might be a huge advantage over the stock BMW M3 sedan, weighing just 1,570 kg as opposed to 1,670 kg. More than that, the 1M also sports an upgraded unit, meaning more power and torque.
