    • BMW E92 335i with upgraded turbos and a BMW JB4 tune versus a tuned Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 from a roll

      Great race here between two cars that are closely matched. N54 owners will obviously enjoy seeing 335 beat an exotic as part of the appeal for the BMW 335 is affordable tuning. That's the reality of it and this 335 with a JB4 tune and upgraded RB turbos is able to be the ECU tuned Gallardo LP560-4. And this Lambo is a worthy opponent considering the stock car traps just under 130 miles per hour so with a decent tune it should be above that mark.


      The cars are close but the 335 is able to edge the LP560-4. Keep in mind though that the LP560 cars with the 5.2 V10 do not gain as much with a tune as the 5.2 R8. To reverse this outcome the Lambo would need a full exhaust and a retune maybe with some higher octane gas. As it sits it is likely in the high 400's to the wheels probably around ~480 which would put it at less power than a well tuned RB turbo 335i with a JB4 running race gas. It is not known what tune the Lambo is running however.

      Great run, video below..

        I wouldnt call it punked... But certainly a good run for the 335i those upgraded turbos are much needed to be in the same league as the Lambo. Pulling an edge is an added bonus for sure.

        Like i said PUNKED, cause look at the cost of each car and frankly saying I would be kind of EMBARASSED to even have another car keep up with me since my car is over $100k

        I wouldn't be, I'd be driving home in a lambo with a smile on my face. Not really giving a $#@! about a 335

        +1

        Anything can be made fast with $, but not everyone can afford a Lambo.

        Stock 560's trap " just under 130 mph " ? Was that a typo or are you saying this 335 traps over 130mph ?

        So you would be depressed if a civic roasted you ? Really ? I could only imagine the height of the building you'd jump off if you had a brand new Veyron SuperSport and got whooped by a highly modded GTR.

        Sleeper I have to be realistic on this. FIRST, I dont have the monies to buy a VEYRON but, maybe a GTR, but I have scared a couple of GTR's down here with my DIESEL and no pun intended for them, yes I would be rather tickled if a car that cost LESS than mines beat me,and, YES I have owned RICE BURNERS before. Jumping of a bldg would be ridiculous maybe you would but not me, I would tell one thing I WOULDNT dare to race that RICE BURNER again if he indeed roasted me Click here to enlarge

        Whether or not you can afford a Veyron, scared other GTR's and previously owned " rice burners " is irrelevant. It was only a comical extrapolation from your previous comment which seemed so far fetched to me. If you would be embarrassed by getting beat by a car with less than a 100k cost difference, I could only imagine how you'd feel after getting beat by one with over a million dollar difference.

        Sleeper frankly u must hv a hardon w me. My comments r my comments as I respect yours I expect u respect mines. Having said that yes I would a little tickled specially if I dropped a million k on a car. Hello wouldn't u be. And yes I would get a GTR to kick some ass best bang for ur dollar outthere. I kinda find it funny ur tickled by comments though. If u ever come down to the island I let u hv a drive on my DIESEL and then u would think differently LOL

        If a 3 series beat my Lambo, I'd point it towards a cliff and stick a brick on the gas pedal and jump out.

        That's probably why you don't own one.

        I strongly disagree it isn't about dollars for straightline speed. We'd all drive Mustangs.

        Not a typo this 335 is going to be close to 130.

        Please refrain from insinuating ghey conclusions from simple car talk.

        I replied to your comment. If it didn't mean anything to you, you could have simply ignored it. Since you replied, I in turn commented to clear up any misconceptions. The second comment was only to cement the fact it was merely humor and to be a bit more lighthearted since there will always be someone faster. Unless I find humor in a comment, i'm not " tickled " by it. Since it's growing rather difficult to understand your posts, i'll respectfully withdraw from any further discussion.
