• E60 M5 with tune, intake, and muffler delete takes on a stock automatic Cadillac CTS-V

      The Cadillac CTS-V is a very strong car. With it's supercharged LSA 6.2 liter V8 it put outs a respectable 556 horses. It is necessary to mention the CTS-V in this video is stock and automatic. On paper the advantage is in the Caddy's court versus the M5 with its smaller naturally aspirated motor. What this race video below shows however is how potent the S85 V10 in the E60 M5 truly is especially on the top end.

      There is a run from a stop as well where the M5 impressively pulls away from the easier to launch automatic CTS-V. We do not need to be reminded how easy the Cadillac is to upgrade and with a few bolt on's the result would be reversed. Still, for a very mildly modified M5 the result is impressive. With some boost, that V10 would become an incredibly potent mill. Check out the video below and thank you to BimmerBoost member TZ04XJR whom the M5 belongs to.

        Nice! my buddy has an 03 cobra (it now has an F1a on it and 600+whp) and he says when his car was in 475whp form, we would have been a dead even run! They are no slouch, so nice kill from a dig!

        Thanks guys!

        I want to get my hands on a VBox so I can get an accurate 60-130 time for my M. My friend had a full bolt on M6 Vert that ran 9.56 60-130 in his latest runs. After driving it my car feels quicker. I know the large weight difference gives is a different feel so I not sure if I'm really quicker at those speeds.. Who knows? I'd be happy to know where it stands on my current mods.. Click here to enlarge

        The Evolve-R tune sure looks impressive.

        I would gladly feature this on the front page but wish you had 1 vid instead of multiple vids.

        1 vid with all 3 runs with your specs and the CTS-V specs listed in the video. A text intro saying BimmerBoost.com would definitely guarantee it.

        I appreciate it but I took care of it. That intro you use in your vids would have been nice though.
