Ariel Atom V8 vs. 600bhp rallycross Citroen DS3 vs. BMW HP4 superbike drag race
In third place on our best drag race list an awesome three-way race between an Ariel Atom V8, Citroen DS3 rallycross car, and BM4 HP4 superbike published by Autocar. What's great about this race is that it pits what is essentially the fastest accelerating road car money can buy, the Ariel Atom V8, against two top machines in entirely different categories; the Citroen DS3 in the video is none other than Liam Doran's X-Games winning rallycross DS3, and the BM4 HP4 is one of BMW's greatest ever superbikes complete with launch control, a 757 bhp/tonne power-to-weight ratio, and a £16,700 price tag.
The race is held at an unused runway, the only problem being that it's soaking wet. So, that raises an issue for the rear wheel drive Ariel Atom V8 and also the bike, which with one wheel drive will struggle to put all of the power down with a high element of risk for the rider. So which will win? The answer might surprise you. Be sure to watch the full video for one of the most intriguing drag races on YouTube.
