Following the same comparison path as MotorTrend, Car and Driver publishes a teaser video of their upcoming review of the 2011 Audi RS5, 2010 BMW M3 and 2011 Cadillac CTS-V Coupe.

The full test drive review is available in the September printed issue of Car and Driver, and it will most likely be online shortly, but for now, they released a teaser video, including some track drifting. C&D rates their cars on four categories: Vehicle, Powertrain, Chassis and Experience.

The M3 came second only in the Powertrain category, but comfortably won the others. With 220 points, the M3 surpasses the CTS-V Coupe (205 points) and the Audi RS5 (199 points).

    This M3 will become a Legend.
    I guess this will be the last naturally aspirated M3 :(

      Maybe if the e class was there, the e class would be 5th, and xf 4th.

    At least we still have the M division to keep us happy and gives the real Ultimate driving machines…no bloody electric steerings and run flats here!!!

    The Caddy is a M6 competitor, not a M3 competitor…

      And yet the M3 trumps it in every department except outright power figures. The new M6 is yet to come. No doubt it is a great effort from Cadillac and deserves props for what it is. And if this is all Cadillac can muster vs an outgoing design I dunno whst it’ll look like vs the new M6
