Drag Race: BMW M235i VS Seat Leon Cupra

Ultimate face-off for FWD or RWD supremacy.

Having clinched the title of fastest front-wheel drive car to complete the Nurburgring lap – with a jaw-dropping time of 7:58.4 – the Seat Leon Cupra has established itself as a force to be reckoned with. But how does the hot hatch measure up when pitted against the new rear-wheel drive contender in the small sports car segment, the BMW M235i? With similar power-to-weight ratios (222hp per ton for the Bimmer versus 212 for the Seat), Evo pushes the two to the limit in a one-on-one drag race.
