• Tuned W212 E63 AMG facelifted model with 4Matic versus a stock BMW F12 M6 - M6 wins?

      Interesting race here that may have some people scratching their heads. The E63 AMG in the video is claimed to be the facelifted model that now offers optional 4Matic all wheel drive. It is not stated whether it is the standard or S model but considering the video claims the E63 has an aftermarket tune bringing it up to 700+ horsepower the point is irrelevant. The tune is by Gorilla Racing whose tuned cars have been impressive.

      The facelifted E63 AMG and the M5/M6 updated with the Competition Package are basically neck and neck with the edge from a stop going to the E63/CLS63 and the edge from a roll going to the M5/M6. This M6 is not stated to have the Competition Package but that it is shown pulling what is claimed to be a modified E63 raises eyebrows.

      Is a stock M6 beating the new 4Matic AMG from a roll odd? Not at all according to MotorTrend's latest results for the E63 AMG S and the M5 Competition Package. The video shows the AMG winning from a stop exactly as it should. However, if this E63 is tuned how is it losing to a stock M6? It should win decisively.

      The only logical conclusions are either that the car is not tuned or the tune is incredibly weak. Even a decent tune should put the E63 ahead from a roll. Regardless, the M6 shows just how quick it is from a roll even in stock form. Enjoy the video below.

        one member has both the m5 and non PP SL63 and they both run the same times with the Sl having slightly better ET same traps (121+). So the PP Will be considerably faster
        It should be but the SL is a different car and lighter. Just like how the M6 is lighter than the M5. Remove weight and they get faster of course.

        I'd love to see a race between them.

        I don't see why not the point stands that the transmission technology can be upgraded considerably and it's not that the GTR is on another level it is that it has a more active high end modification seen. It's seen as a car to tune.

        A larger V8 will make more power but nobody is aggressively doing anything on the high end yet.
