    Tuned Cadillac ATS-V vs. BMW F80 M3 on the 1/4 mile dragstrip

    An independent drag race between two enthusiast ars that directly compete in the same segment is something we definitely like to see. Both vehicles are turbocharged and direct injected six cylinder models but the ATS-V has a larger 3.6 liter LT4 V6 and the M3 utilizes the 3.0 liter S55 I6.

    The heavier Cadillac (by roughly 300 pounds) gets off the line much better than the M3. The ATS-V appears to be an automatic example. The M3 looks to be running it down but seems to get off the gas early. The M3 runs 11.604 @ 105.89 and the ATS-V runs 11.579 @ 119.82.

    The ATS-V has a tune but is on stock tires. We do not know if the M3 is tuned or not but it was on drag radials.

    If you look at the comments of the video, ATS-V owner says he was bracket racing. He let off to not go faster than 11.5.

    That would also explain the M3 letting off early.

    I'd like to see these two square off in a true grudge race. I bet the ATS-V aftermarket shows up way faster than the BMW aftermarket.....
