    • BMW F90 M5 vs. W213 Mercedes E63 S street encounter

      Figuring out which of these super sedans is faster than the other going based on magazine results is frustrating. Some say the M5 is faster and others the E63 S. Independent testing with real world fuel, real world drivers, and real world showroom stock cars is the way to go.


      In this instance, the M5 gets the win although it is close. It makes sense considering the M5 is lighter (although it has a passenger in the video) and the larger motor.

      The cars are so close really tuning will be the differentiating factor and if you own one and want to make sure you are ahead of your AMG or M rival, get some aftermarket software.

        Well assuming the M5 had 150Lbs more in passenger weight, that is like spotting the AMG 15 horsepower. Take the passenger out of the BMW and put him in the AMG and the difference would be significant.

        that's assuming all drivers weigh the same.

        They are even-steven.

        I am sure at the FBO level, the M5’s larger displacement and less weight will have it out pull the 63s

        Guys this is complete bull$#@! race with Merc with 300km only with steel brakes and novice driver. Guys experienced enough in Street racing and with cars after 3000km were ready and asking that guy for a race, but he preferred to find a car himself and arranged a "private" drag and published it.

        Hopefully we can get more runs...

        The cars look close though.
