Drag Race – 1000HP BMW M5 vs. Porsche 911 Turbo S

October 27th, 2020

Get ready drag racing fans and gearheads from every walk of life – we are in for a treat. This clip delivers a pair of European sports cars worthy if a king’s ransom. With all of their differences – and there are many – both these sports cars are crafted with pride in the land of bratwurst and beer.

The first of our very capable competitors is a BMW M5 Competition. Under the hood of this front-engine, all-wheel drive (with specialized rear-wheel drive only mode) sedan is a 4.4-liter twin turbocharged V8 engine. In factory trim, this car can produce 667hp and 553 lb.-ft. of torque. Of course, the M5 featured in this video has been modified with upgraded engine internals (forged pistons, powder rods, etc.), hybrid turbochargers, a catless exhaust downpipe and a methanol injection. The controller has been extensively tuned as well. This competitor is quite hefty at a GVW of 4,277-pounds. As you see it in this video, the M5 Competition can make 1,000hp.

Much lighter than the BMW at 3,770-pounds, the Porsche 911 Turbo S is a rear-engine all-wheel drive sports car. Under the bonnet is a twin turbocharged flat 6-cylinder engine that can churn out 650hp and turn the quarter-mile in 10.1-seconds. This car is the current king of the drag races for this channel, but his reign may come to an end with this Bavarian monster.

Let’s get down to where the rubber meets the road.
