It’s closer to an even race with the M4 packing a Stage 3 performance upgrade

On the surface, a race between a BMW M4 and a Ferrari F12berlinetta isn’t a fair fight. Make no mistake, the M4 is fast, but It just can’t compete with the F12berlinetta. But, what happens when you have an M4 that packs a KK-Performance Stage 3 tuning kit? Well, that makes for a far more interesting race.

Let’s look at the tale of the tape. In one corner, you have the 3,758-pound F12berlinetta, which is powered by a 6.2-liter V-10 engine that produces 740 horsepower and 508 pound-feet of torque. It’s powerful enough to sprint from 0 to 62 mph in 3.1 seconds and hit a top speed of 211 mph. In the other corner, there is the 3,553-pound, KK-Performance-tuned, BMW M4. It still rocks the same 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six engine, but thanks to KK-Performance’s Stage 3 kit, power has been spiked up to 700 horsepower — close to 300 ponies of extra power compared to its standard 425-horsepower output.

Take all those numbers into consideration and you have a much more even fight than the slaughter that would’ve happened if the F12berlinetta raced a standard M4. So what happens when you line these two monsters next to each other and ask them to race to a quarter-mile? I don’t want to spoil the intrigue and I’m not even going to offer any hints or clues. I’ll just tell you to watch the video and enjoy the show.
