Does a BMW M3 get the lead during a race against the BMW S 1000 RR just because it has an extra two wheels? BMW Motorrad chose to tackle that question with a duel of sorts between Rico’s two-wheeled motorcycle and Nico’s luxury four-wheeled sports car.
Anyone prepared to watch the video should probably know that the 999 cc four cylinder inline engine found in the S 1000 RR and the 4.0 L V8 sitting snug in the BMW M3 were both given a proper tuning upgrade that added a new Akrapovnic exhaust system. This new exhaust provided both machines with a few extra HP. Another thing to know before watching is that each vehicle started the race on the opposite side of the other, hence the title, The Chase.
Any guesses on which beast caught up to the other? Watch the video to see for yourself.
