Thanks to for providing us their M3!
It's time for the drag race you didn't understand you required … Until today!
So usually you would say this will be a slam dunk for the Lucid, after all, a stock BMW M3 comes equipped with a 3-litre twin-turbo straight-six which is good for 510hp and 650Nm. Nevertheless, while this M3 comes with the exact same engine, it's been tuned and can now deliver an excellent 750hp and 900Nm! All this power is sent through the same 8-speed automated gearbox, and it weighs in at 1,780 kg.
So then we have the Lucid. It's geared up with 2 electric motors, and they combine to produce an eye-watering 1,111 hp and 1,390 Nm of torque. But obviously, being an EV, it's quite damn heavy, tipping the scales at 2,383 kg. It's likewise SO much more pricey than the BMW, rolling up with a price tag of over ₤ 193,000!!
So will the more powerful Lucid snatch the W? Or will the weight difference show definitive? There's only one method to find out … LET'S RACE!
