Kawaii drag race for you today, i’m sat in alexa’s rcf track edition. Next to me is a bmw. M4. Next to that is a mercedes amg. C63S coupe. Those germans are both turbocharged. This is naturally aspirated. It might be the underdog, so i thought why don’t i bring along the previous generation versions of those two germans, which are naturally aspirated to see how they compare against this lexus and against their newer versions. So i have a mercedes w204, c63 and then next to that is a bmw. E90. M3. So let me tell you about these car’s engines, so the lexus has a naturally aspirated v8 it’s, a five liter unit 477 horsepower 530 newton meters of torque got an eight speed, automatic gearbox, rear wheel, drive this car weighs in around 1750 kilos and it costs 60. 000 pounds the bmw, it has a three liter twin turbo straight six: 430 horsepower 550 newton meters of torque, a seven speed, dual clutch automatic gearbox. It weighs in at 650 kilos and costs around 67 000 pounds now the mercedes. Well, it has a four liter twin turbo v8, with 510 horsepower 700 newton meters of torque, a nine speed, automatic gearbox rear wheel drive like all the other cars, and it weighs in at over 1800 kilos, plus it’s quite expensive, looking around 77 000 pounds. So the old mercedes has the largest engine here: it’s a 6.2 litre, naturally aspirated v8, with 460 horsepower and 600 newton meters of torque.
The car has a seven speed automatic gearbox, obviously it’s rear wheel drive and it weighs in at around sixteen hundred and fifty kilos. The chat who bought it paid 19 grand for it. Finally, we come to the old m3, so that has a four liter. Naturally aspirated v8, with 420 horsepower and 400 newton meters of torque it’s got a seven speed. Dual clutch automatic gearbox once again rear wheel, drive and it weighs in at about 1600 kilos that car is worth 25 grand. So that’s all the facts. You need to know there’s quite a lot of them before we actually race the cars let’s. Just do a sound check, shall we or if you really rev it up? Oh the intake on this Music it’s quite good, go and give the m4 some revs let’s have a listen to the c63 coupe Music sounds like the mercedes. Has a soft limiter, not great let’s, have a listen to the old c63 and finally, then let’s have a listen to the old m3 i’m too far away from the cars at the other end. To really tell so. What i need you to do is click on the pop out banner up there to vote, which car, you think sounds the best right. You’Ve done that one last thing before we get on with the race. Please make sure you subscribe to this channel and hit that bell icon to turn your notifications on that way. You’Ll be alerted when we make a new upload, so you won’t miss a single thing: Music.
Seeing as these are rear wheel drive cars, we should really want their tires before we race, because we might get tough results, it’s quite easy in this car. I can just hold it on the brake into this. Oh yeah baby go through the gear that’s a smoky one. Okay, the other cars they’ve got a going to some donuts Music Music right let’s, get on with it three two one Music great off the line, but damn turbo power kills me. I love the fact that the old c63 has been the new one Music. Oh my gosh Music. Well, that was interesting. I had a brilliant launch in this absolutely brilliant. What happened in the m4? You absolutely had me off the line, but then i hit second gear, and this thing just took off what happened to this c63 coupe. It wants to shift up, it wants to shift down, but then once you’re going it’s all right, the launch just cocked up in it yeah. Basically that w204 shot off the line. It came. Second, it beat me: oh, the launch control system on this is actually pretty good, but this engine is just amazing. What happened to the old m3 it’s an older car, but once it gets going, it did pretty well. So then, what exactly happened, while the bmw m4 did the standing quarter mile in 12.4 seconds, the old c63 took 12.6 seconds. The lexus took 12.7 seconds. The new c63s took 12.
8 seconds and the old m3 took 13 seconds now. Amg fanboys are probably complaining about the new c63 s’s paul launch so to appease them. Let’S give it a second chance see if we can do better this time. Yet again, the c63s struggled to put its power down getting off the line. However, initial traction won’t matter in the next challenge: three, two one Music that’s, it guys it’s slow down, that’s it mike kicked down really really well, but that c63 coupe just shut off what the heck happened, it’s, just quite quick quicker than everyone else. I suppose was the m4 catching it at all. We were pretty much level pegging once he got away. That was it. We were doing 130 and we were holding steady. What happened with the old c63, the gearbox wasn’t too bad. You know, but it didn’t have the power. So now we can have a rolling race but locked in third gear manual mode in the cosmic sportiest setting. Are you ready guys and count it in three? Two one go. This picks up really good. The throttle response is amazing: it just doesn’t have the torque i’m amazed at the old c63. It looks like it’s a head, almost cause that’s got talk and throttle response that’s over guys. Well, that was interesting. I mean i saw a race happening way off in the distance. Bmw m4. What happened? Well, i thought i got a good start and then i saw both c63s absolutely blitzed past.
So what happened in the new c63? Did you take off first or did the old one just get ahead? I’Ll be honest to begin with, i wasn’t looking right because i thought he’d lose and then, when i did look right, there was a c63 there and he passed me 155 old. E90. M3. What was going on with you it’s a lot closer this time, much better response for the transmission in proper sport mode, but you didn’t quite have the legs well, for you fanboys. You know that back in the day, the c63 was a lot quicker it’s. All about capacity and the mercedes had it now we’re going to do a brake test from 70 miles an hour when we hit the line full emergency. Stop so guys. I’Ve got a brake system, malfunctioning i’m going to have to bail it’s barbie w, oh pants. I lost that. I think the c63 might have won, but i don’t know who came second and third old, c63 what’s the score between you and the old m3. Well from here it looks like i just about picked it it’s. The new 63 beat you right yeah. I can see that pretty clearly yeah, not much, but i can see it. I can do something to score from extra points, you’re, not getting extra points for that you’re actually going to lose some it’s ridiculous there’s.

Well, it turns out that its pads were running low and needed replacing. Hence the warning it’s as though the car somehow knew what we were about to do to it and threw in the towel, rather than destroy its brake discs. How very sensible i’m desperate for a piss, now i’m gon na have to hold on for them to come back and raise, i mean i’m, absolutely done! We should have done the race, the rolling race.
