Race video : Stock F10 M5 struggles with and gets beat by a stock P31 W204 C63 AMG in a 1/2 mile race
More and more videos coming from the No Fly Zone event
and this one is particularly telling. The F10 M5 has a twin turbocharged V8 and a dual clutch transmission. The C63 AMG in comparison has a 6.2 liter naturally aspirated V8 with an automatic transmission. Considering the F10 M5 has a large horsepower advantage of almost 100 wheel horsepower due to being underrated and putting down in 5XX wheel horsepower range stock
a stock C63 AMG should be easy work for it especially in a half mile race.
The C63 AMG has the P31 package which provides the 6.2 liter M156 V8 with stronger forged internals and a more aggressive tune. It is about equal to a C63 AMG with a tune on it so power should be somewhere in the low 420 WHP range. So the M5 has more power, but also a few hundred more pounds to carry
The C63 belongs to BenzBoost member @xtyper
and he claims it is stock. The M5 is also stock. Hard to understand why the M5 does not pull away up top with all that horsepower.
