This is probably the week for weird drag races. After looking at a hatchback racing a crossover SUV it's time to dwell even deeper into the Internet and look at an even more interesting showdown: 740i vs E36 M3.
Yeah, it's that weird! The 7er is an F01 so it's pretty recent and has a 3-liter 320 HP turbocharged engine under the hood to push forward the 2 tones of luxury it provides.

On the other hand the E36 M3 has a 3.2-liter inline 6-cylinder engine, codenamed S50, naturally aspirated, delivering 321 HP and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque to a much lighter chassis of just 1,460 kg.

Judging by the numbers, the M3 should easily win, despite its old age. However, the 7er has a couple of tricks up its sleeve like the automatic gearbox that is pretty quick. It should be an interesting run.
