    Wtf!! It's not a discovery sport it's a Range Rover sport SVR

    So what you prove here is that a BMW Supercar is barely faster than a 2.3 ton SUV and a small hatchback that starts half a second later than it… Well done bimmer!

    Rs3 starts much later than the i8. So not a fair comparison

    This was pretty oblivious which sport car wouldn't win

    Not making excuses, but a Range Rover with 22's (not 21's as fitted) would handle better and be a tad quicker


    what do u people expect sub vs coupe?? obviously coupe will win with some exceptions……but good

    That Video is fake. We tested I8 and RS3 here. 0-100kph RS3: 3.9 I8 4.5 0-200kph RS3 14.8 I8 17.8 On the Dyno the RS3 in Stock Configuration made 425hp. 425 hp stock. 60 more then advertised. After some fiddling with the Software this thing is managing 0-100 in 3.7s and 0-200 in 12.3s it is faster on the Quartermile then a BMW M5. No I8 ever beat an RS3. That is complete Bullshit. How much did BMW Pay you to accelerate with half throttle in the RS3

    Couldn't even see the finish line for who came in 2nd. 3 minutes spent on this video for a 10 second drag race and no camera angle for a clear view?

    how come the rs3 didnt win, it has a 0 to 100 in 3.9
    compared to i8 4.4
    ohh this is US spec, nuff said

    Need a restart.  I8 jumped the gun or the RS3 driver was sleeping?

  21. rob

    electric motor helps the i8 off the line. electric motors make tons of torque

  22. Ponygt 662

    Why do such incomparable cars drag race, I think its always better to do drag races between similar creeds of cars, suvs etc
    like i8 vs RS3 vs a45 vs Civic type R
    or 911 gt3 vs amg gts vs Nissan GTR

    or r8 v10+ vs Huracan vs 650s etc

  23. E H

    Who's the moron sleeping in the Audi? Was he aware a race was about to happen??


    The i8 won as expected. No lag for the i8. A 2 speed front transmission meaning the front motor is quite useful at high speed. Also there's an 8 hp Electric motor at the back for filling up the gap of turbo lag I think. Not to mention thinner tires means faster at high speed due to better aero and less resistance. Nice win by BMW. That Range Rover pitch like an airplane by the way.

    Is the RS3 restricted in RSA because on paper the 0-62 is loads faster than the I8 🤔
