Can I beat an M2 in a car that costs HALF the price!?

Here's a drag race you weren't expecting to see … Until today!

We've got Mat in the all-new 4 XPower, and it's racing off versus the all-new !

Now on the face of it, you may believe that the is set to get absolutely crushed! However trust us, this is no typical MG. You see, whereas the regular MG 4 is geared up with a single electric motor that can provide 203hp, the XPower includes dual motors and the capability to produce 435hp and 600Nm of torque! That's enough to propel it to 60mph in simply 3.8 seconds, and remarkable, it just costs ₤ 36,500! It's the heaviest vehicle here, though, weighing in at around 1,800 kg.

Then we have the . It includes the same 3-litre twin-turbo straight-six as found in the current M3, but the output has been called down a little, so it'll produce 460hp and 550Nm of torque. This power is delivered to the rear wheels just, and it suggestions the scales at 1,725 kg. If you're looking to buy one new, it'll set you back around ₤ 65,000.

So what do you think – can the MG take the win?! There's just one method to discover … LET'S RACE!

      I’ve said it many times before, Matt has a clone or two. His content is almost non-stop and most of the other sites only give us one or two a week. It’s crazy and I love it!

      He didn’t, Sam jumped the 1st, and nobody jumped the second. If you skip frame by frame his brake lights turned off before the wheels started to spin

      @prefescent there is a slight delay in BMW launch controls from releasing the brake pedal to the wheels moving. its called timing it perfectly not jumping. no one jumped any start

    3:02 “Electric internal combusting engine” – Mat just invented a new propulsion system. 😁

      You need a spark plug, and it is in the internal part of the engine. So, maybe not entirely wrong.

      And the third! Slow down the playback to .25 and he clearly jumps in races two and three. M2 would’ve had a clean sweep otherwise.

    petition for carwow to buy a slo mo camera for the finish line

    1. Wout Vandenwyngaert Avatar
      Wout Vandenwyngaert

      Probably not even needed, I bet the cameras they have can do at least 120fps in 1080p, maybe even 240. Also, they should shoot at a much higher shutterspeed, that will make the cars less blurry.

    2. Richard E Avatar

      And raise the height

    3. Wout Vandenwyngaert Avatar
      Wout Vandenwyngaert

      @Richard E true, but if they raised the height they would have to use a camera with a global shutter as a rolling shutter can give skewed results at these high speeds. Without that, is it actually better to stay low and keep it fair. (Sorry I’m a camera nerd)

    Even though that roll race was “cheated” it was 100% realistic. Sadly that’s how street races are nowadays someone doing 3 really fast honks and taking off so that he can say he won, not to see which car was actually fastest.

    1. Japplesnap Avatar

      You chase, you race. If the other car jumps, don’t go. This is Street Racing 101.

    2. Daniel Carrión Avatar
      Daniel Carrión

      @Japplesnap oh trust me, I know. But a lot of other people don’t because they don’t have the experience yet, or because they think they’ll pull back. Sad part is that the person jumping is scared and at the ends posts as if his car is faster than the other despite the results. The majority of times people chase and as soon as they pull back, the cheater let’s off saying they’ve won

    Matt has a special talent. A few weeks ago Sam was a mild mannered racing driver. Now he screams across open tarmac.

      But boy racers won’t buy these cars ordinary people which are not used to the speed will, and they have terrible breaks, so this is just a recipe for disaster

    Matt’s teaching methods are unparalleled 😂. He turned Sam from a mild-mannered racer to a shouting drag race enthusiast. Also, can we talk about how Matt pulled off the heist of the century with that jump in the second drag race?
