Video: BMW 1 M Coupe vs E92 BMW M3, E36 BMW M3 and BMW Z4 M Coupe

Here’s a video that shows the new BMW 1 M Coupe vs the E92 BMW M3 in a drag race. It also compares the 1 M Coupe vs the E36 BMW M3 and the 1 M Coupe vs the BMW Z4 M Coupe.

There’s been a lot of hype and interest surrounding the new BMW 1 Series M Coupe, especially lots of concern about whether it is worthy of the M badge and how it compares against the BMW M3. This video certainly settles that argument.

The BMW 1 Series M Coupe isn’t set for an Australian launch until the end of August, even so, the international press have already got their hands on the new coupe, and, by the looks of it, some have been just as curious as us when it comes to how the new 1 M shapes up against the BMW M3.

This recently uploaded video has just appeared on Driving-fun.com‘s YouTube channel comparing the BMW 1 M Coupe to some of the current and past greats of the BMW M stable.

The comparison isn’t in English but it doesn’t really matter, high-revving horsepower and good ol’ drag racing sounds and looks the same no matter what language it’s in.

The racing happens at the following times in the video if you want to fast forward to the action:

BMW 1 M vs BMW E92 M3 – around 1:00
BMW 1 M vs BMW E36 M3 – around 1:54
BMW 1 M vs BMW Z4 M Coupe – around 3:50

However, there are some interesting acceleration and high speed tests of each car in between the races. Take a look below, and tell us, which car would you prefer? Putting prices aside.
