• Stock C6 Z06 versus stock F10 M5 highway roll on races - M5 wins? WTF?

      This is a bit of a perplexing run video. What we have here is two cars claimed to be stock, A C6 Z06 and the new F10 M5. The two cars do several runs from a roll on the highway from speeds of 80 kilometers per hour (50 miles per hour). The Z06 is just over 1000 pounds lighter than the F10 M5. It does not give up a ton horsepower wise showing around ~450 wheel horsepower stock versus the F10 M5 which sits at about ~60 wheel horsepower more.


      So the F10 M5 makes more power but has another 1000 pounds to carry around. The F10 M5 has also lost to a stock P31 C63 AMG in a roll on race which weighs 700-800 pounds more than the Z06 and makes roughly 35 less horsepower at the wheels than the Z06. So, BimmerBoost is left scratching its head on this one.

      Even magazines routinely get ~125 miles per hour of the C6 Z06 in the 1/4 mile whereas the the M5 is in the ~120 range trap speed range meaning the C6 Z06 is favored from a roll, favored from a stop due to its weight, favored basically everywhere. The fastest 1/4 mile trap speed recorded for a stock F10 M5 is Car and Driver with a 122 mile per hour trap but Car and Driver got 126 for the Z06 so... these races make no sense.

      The Z06 simply has a much better power to weight ratio so why the result is what it is I have no clue. The M5 clearly pulls up top in multiple runs whether it gets the jump or not. Let's just hope F10 M5 owners don't start thinking their car is now a Z06 beater as this will no doubt inflate some egos. From the looks of things though the M6 may have a shot to at least make it a race against the C6 Z06 with how it has shown against the Nissan GTR recently.

      Video is below, you make sense of it.

        Cant wait to see how many M5 owners try to run z06's and get stomped, purely on this video and the speculation it has behind it.

        The recent half mile in Chicago suggests the m5 is damn near on par with the c6.

        A C6 Z06 with just a dyno tune is going to be a good bit faster then a stock C6Z. Considering most C6Z's that run aren't stock, i'd agree that most F10 M5's are going to get beat

        Well, the last shiftsector had a Stock C63 P31 beating a Stock F10 m5 twice over. Does that mean a C63 is faster than a z06? Doubt it.

        A C63 P31 with it's wet clutch 7 speed has gotten to the 120mph mark in the 1/4. Whether or not it could back 1/2 a C6Z in the 1/4 mile is surely something that needs to be tested. For the F10, there is some concrete evidence to formulate a good guess that it can pull one. Videos lie that's one thing, timeslips...that's another.

        Again, most stock C6Z's trap 120-124. There's a serious weight and tire advantage for that car in the first 1/8th mile

        I feel like you all forgot how prone to heatsoak the new M5 is. It has been shown that its a problem with the M5, therefore races involving an F10 M5 are circumstantial, and the results may vary.

        Jamie Furman's stock C6 Z06 stock tire run.

        Note, in a later video he claimed the car made 455whp what any stock C6 Z06 could make, I however have seen "most" make 420-440

        Notice the back 1/8th, NOT the front 1/8th.

        The M5 picks up 26.62 MPH.

        The Z06 picks up 26.45 MPH

        Also note, more Z06's are dragging each weekend then all F10 M5's combined to date and they've been beating on them at the strip since 2006.
        Important, no one has ever really replicated the Z06 times, and traps. So this is the worlds 'fastest' being edged out past 90mph
        Great post @onurleft
