There’s no better place than the dragstrip to settle who is faster than one another in a straight line. Today, we have video of a 2016 Cadillac ATS-V and a 2015 BMW M3 hustling down the dragstrip in a friendly, competitive manner.
We’ll spoil the results because there’s a backstory to the win here: the 2016 ATS-V wins. But, it may not be truly victorious. It seems this race was part of a bracket competition, and 11.5 times were the goal here. As you can see, the BMW quickly catches up to the ATS-V, but the driver seems to let off towards the end to ensure he isn’t disqualified for too fast of a time.
Regardless, press play to see Cadillac’s answer to the German sport sedan do battle with the M3.
