    • Tuned F10 M5 takes on a tuned W204 C63 AMG and F85 X5M in standing 1/2 mile runs

      Some good video here from our friends in Russia of a tuned BMW F10 M5 going at it with a bolt on tuned W204 C63 AMG and F85 X5M. The first run is the M5 versus the C63 but the M5 gets a red light so no data is provided for its run.


      It clearly is the faster car however and the C63 is not exactly a fast example for the M156 platform. It only traps 120 miles per hour so it is in desperate need of a blower.

      The F85 X5M is up next and thanks to its all wheel drive it gets a nice lead but the F10 M5 comes roaring past it. In a long race like the X5M aerodynamics and weight just put it at too much of a disadvantage.

      The 1/2 mile traps illustrate this:

      M5: 161.7 mph
      X5M: 139.28

      That is a spread of over 22 miles per hour. Night and day.
