Drag Race: BMW M2 vs Mercedes A45 AMG

In the acceleration-obsessed world of drag racing, one aspect of a car’s setup is often crucial to victory: all-wheel drive. Sending power through all four wheels significantly aids traction and helps the car move quickly off the line in those all-important first few seconds of a quarter mile drag race.

Which makes our latest drag race very interesting; although these cars have similar levels of power and torque, the BMW is rear wheel drive while the plucky A45 AMG, now with even more power after a facelift, is all wheel drive.

With the odds stacked in the AMG’s favour, would the latest M car from BMW be able to claw back a victory in tough conditions?
