BMW M4 versus Corvette Stingray

Some of the contents of this video remind me of Top Gear but that aside, I think they arrive at an agreeable conclusion. Going by the numbers, the BMW M4 and the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray seem quite right for a track battle. Both cars produce over 400 horsepower and are built using the latest technologies.

The new BMW M4 uses a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter straight-six cylinder engine that delivers 430 hp and 407 lb-ft of torque. A 7-speed dual-clutch transmission is offered as an option, while a 6-speed manual is standard. This rear-wheel drive coupe can do speeds up to 155 mph (limited) and 0-60 in just 4.1 seconds. Underneath the skin, the BMW M4 uses lots of carbon fiber parts to save weight. It now features a wider track and a new suspension geometry. The chassis, as is with all M3s before this is just sublime. An electronic differential replaces the old mechanical unit. Being a proper M-car, it comes loaded with different modes for tweaking the ride and handling characteristics of the car.

The Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is a giant leap from the Corvettes of the past. Gone is crude engineering, replaced with more modern, sustainable sophistication. The engine is a small-block V8, 6.2 liters producing 460 horsepower and 460 lb-ft. A 7-speed manual gearbox is standard or one can order a 6-speed automatic instead. The 2014 Corvette Stingray is more powerful than the M4 and thus is quicker to 60 mph. It also costs $10,000 less than the BMW M4. Watch the video after the jump to find out the winner.
