October 18, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

A video has been posted on the Track Day YouTube channel that shows the race between the tuned version of the BMW M240i coupe, the German 992 generation Porsche 911 Carrera S and the powerful BMW M3 Competition sedan (F80).

Today we want to show a race in a straight line against time (drag racing), in which the modernized BMW M240i, as well as the all-stock Porsche 911 Carrera S 992 generation and BMW M3 Competition F80, are participating. Apparently, the guys from the Track Day YouTube channel wanted to know if the tuned M240i coupe could match the characteristics of its much more expensive competitors.

Even in its standard form, the BMW M240i is a very powerful vehicle.

It is powered by a 3.0-liter turbocharged B58 in-line six-cylinder engine. Its power is 335 hp (500 Nm). According to many tuners and BMW M240i owners, these numbers are seriously understated at the factory. The BMW M240i featured in today’s video is equipped with a 6-speed manual gearbox and a full list of modifications that will give it 490 hp.

Its rival, the BMW M3 Competition sedan, is completely standard, except for the addition of a more efficient exhaust system, which makes the car a little louder thanks to the exciting crackle of the exhaust. The M3 Competition develops a powerful 444 hp. from its turbocharged 3.0-liter inline 6-cylinder S55 engine, which is mated to a 6-speed manual transmission.

Finally, we have the 992 Porsche 911 Carrera S, which is equipped with a powerful engine and fast PDK automatic dual-clutch transmission.
