The new BMW M5 is getting nearer and nearer to being delivered to its first clients however, whereas we’re ready, some individuals are nonetheless racing the outdated F10 mannequin towards its newer rival from Stuttgart, the Mercedes-AMG E63 S. The outcomes aren’t precisely pleasing for BMW followers, particularly if the stated races are going down from a standstill, the place traction actually turns into a problem.
That’s what Mat Watson seen first hand when he drag raced two all-wheel drive monsters towards an F10 M5. Within the video beneath we get to see the British presenter behind the wheel of a fairly uncommon automobile, the BMW M5 30 Jahre Edition.

And regardless that BMW revised the lively M rear differential to deal with the additional energy, launching this uber-fast sedan remains to be actually difficult.
With a lot energy and torque going to the rear wheels, launching this M5 takes a very cautious proper foot and it seems to be like Mat merely doesn’t have one as he finally ends up almost lighting up the tires when setting off on this fairly unfair drag race. Alternatively, the Audi RS5 and Mercedes-AMG E63 S haven’t any points by any means placing the ability down and this complete factor truly turns into a two-horse race.
When the three went at it from a rolling begin, the tip consequence was lots nearer to what the numbers say on paper. The E63 S nonetheless received because it does include extra energy and torque than the F10 M5 30 Jahre however this time round, the Audi got here in final because it wasn’t even alleged to be racing these significantly extra highly effective rivals from Germany within the first place.
