The Chase with BMW M3 vs. BMW S 1000 RR

Which do you think will win in a race between the BMW M3 and the BMW S 1000 RR Superbike? Well, BMW has put together a new short film called “The Chase” to settle that question.

Rider Rico Penzkofer takes the BMW S 1000 RR in head-to-head race with Nico Bastian and the BMW M3. But before the race, to make sure that “The Chase” will be completely fair, both vehicles are given expert fine-tuning at the Akrapovic factory in Slovenia.
