It's time for an estate showdown!

We've got our hands on the M3 Touring, and it's taking on against among the most powerful estates ever – the Mercedes- E63 S Estate!

So let's see how the two compare. Beginning with the , it's powered by a 3-litre twin-turbo straight-six that can deliver 510hp and 650Nm of torque. Power is sent out to all four wheels via an 8-speed automatic gearbox, and it tips the scales at 1,865 kg. If you're seeking to buy among these, it'll set you back a minimum of ₤ 88,000.

Then we have the . It's loading a 4-litre twin-turbo V8 under the bonnet, and this can produce 612hp and 850Nm. It rolls up equipped with a 9-speed automatic gearbox to send out power to all four wheels, and it's the much heavier of the two vehicles, weighing in at 1,940 kg. Back when this was released in 2019, it would cost you around ₤ 110,000.

So might the more recent BMW snatch it, even with less power?! There's just one method to discover … LET'S RACE!

      The whole point of the hands and count down is that the drivers are supposed to be able to time their start rather than react to it. It’s the best way to take the driver’s reaction time out of it and focus more on the car’s performance. I agree it’s still not perfect as Matt is very good at timing the start (so is Sam actually, as he explained here it’s the inherent Mercedes launch delay that was making his job more difficult here) so he often gets an advantage over other drivers, but that’s their fault, not his, and the solution isn’t to go to a more random lights system like F1 because that would become even more a test of driver reaction times and even less about the cars.

    That’s actually the version of the previous E-Class I like the most (the front was better before the facelift…and way better than the new one imo).
    I still wonder: what if BMW made a “CS” version of that Touring 🤔

      What is “Anticipated Starts” btw?

    5. @retsehcnamdetinu1672 Avatar

      That’s when you let go off the brake pedal or step on the gas to make your car move before actually first visualising the “GO” procedure. This is usually done to eradicate as much a delay between a cars initial movement and drivers engagement of power off procedure. That delay obviously varies from car to car and that’s why the merc ended up winning the drag races because sam factored in the delay time by setting off just before “GO” hand signals.

      Why compare a hardtop to a convertibles? And awd vs rwd.

      Makes more sense to do one or the other, not to compare them to each other and have wildly different results
