Heroes Humbled isn't just one drag race, it is a series of drag races produced by Auto Express. In this series, some old performance cars are pitted against some far more economical models from today.
The Heroes Humbled races include the Audi Quattro 20v vs. Audi A4 2.0 TDI Quattro, Vauxhall/ Opel Astra GTE vs. Vauxhall/ Opel Astra Sports, Mercedes 450 SEL vs. Mercedes S350 CDI, BMW E30 M3 vs. BMW 320d, and VW Golf GTI MK II vs. VW Golf 2.0 TDI.
The best race out of them all is the BMW E30 M3 vs. BMW 320d, followed closely by the Audi Quattro 20v vs. Audi A4 2.0 TDI Quattro race. The BMW E30 M3 vs. BMW 320d is fantastic because the E30 M3 is an icon and one of the finest machines ever made, and to pit it against a 320d sounds stupid - but the result is rather surprising. Can this much-loved E30 with 215 horsepower and 170 lb /ft beat off an economical diesel complete with DAB radio and other modern luxuries? Watch the video to find out.
