Video: BMW S 1000 RR vs Audi R8 Drift Gymkhana – BMW BLOG
Jorian Ponomareff, a professional stunt rider, takes a BMW S1000 RR and show us what the superbike can really do. Adding an Audi R8 into the mix makes things even more interesting.
It was introduced in Munich in April 2008, and is powered by a 999 cc (61.0 cu in) inline-4 engine redlined at 14,200 rpm.
BMW made 1,000 S1000RRs in 2009 to satisfy World Superbike homologation requirements, but expanded production for commercial sale of the bike in 2010. It has an anti-lock braking system, standard, with an optional electronic traction control. It has a wet weight of 207.7 kg (458 lb), and produces 133.6 kW (179.2 hp) @ 13,250 rpm at the rear wheel.
The Audi R8 is a mid-engine, 2-seater sports car in 2006. It remains unknown which exact model is used in the video below.
Let’s have a look.
