Drag Race Friday: BMW i8 versus BMW M4

Keep in mind this is in German, so cool your jets on understanding the witty banter.  From our friends at AutoBild.de, this is a drag race to hopefully settle the intra-family rivalry between the performance and innovation divisions.

Probably not.

The BMW M4 is the leader of the marques performance pack.  A classic inline 6, tweaked to extract as much performance as possible.  The new kid on the block is the i8.  Powered by two electric motors and an oversized golf cart engine, the i8 is BMW’s leader in terms of powertrain, aerodynamics and body composition technology.

I think this drag race will be the first of many to come.  As the M4 integrates more tech from the i8, be certain to see more of these.
