BMW M5 Vs. Dodge Charger Hellcat

April 17th, 2015

Charger HellcatWhat would happen if a luxury sedan like an E39 (1998-2003) BMW 5-Series went up against the almighty 707-horsepower Dodge Charger Hellcat in a rolling drag race? That depends upon whether or not the BMW is an M-Sport with a lighter turbocharged 3.2-liter six-cylinder engine from a M3 Coupe.

I am not sure what kind of tuning was necessary to push the M5 past the Hellcat in terms of performance horsepower output. Whatever modifications have been performed on this opulent European four-door, they prove more than adequate to dispense of this Mopar, in short order. I would like to see this contest begin from a dead-stop and encompass a crisp quarter-mile (with a different driver in the Dodge). I believe the results would be different — but I bleed red,white, and blue.
