700HP Supra MK4 vs BMW M3: DRAG RACE

How’s this for a RWD drag race?! We’ve got Mat lining up in a classic Mk4 Supra, and he’s facing off against Jodie Kidd in a G80 BMW M3!

Think this one will be a walkover for the BMW? Well, guess again! You see, although the Supra still has the same 2JZ 3-litre engine under the bonnet as when it was released in 1997, it’s had a little work done to it. It’s swapped two turbos for one much bigger one, and as a result this JDM classic now pumps out 708hp and 709Nm! What’s more, it’s also fitted with a new gearbox – the same 8-speed auto gearbox as found in the G80 M3!

In comparison, the G80 comes with a 3-litre twin-turbo straight-six under the bonnet, but it can ‘only’ put down 510hp and 650Nm! Sure it may be much newer and come with launch control, but it’s also heavier than the Supra, tipping the scales at 1,730kg. In comparison, the Supra weighs in at 1,490kg.

So what do you think – is the Supra going to smash it?! Or is it not going to be able to handle that much power through its rear wheels? There’s only one way to find out for sure… LET’S RACE!
