2011 BMW 335is Launch Control in Action

it with a HD one next time. Haven't really timed the 0-100 so you can

2013 BMW 335is - Launch Control Demo
1st Attempt Using Launch Control @ 2,927 (s)miles on the clock.
Felt very little acceleration under 4K. Plenty above, though. ;-)
Got one good launch in around 2.5K and paddle shifting.
Still showed 0-60mph in 4.9 and 0-100mph in 10.5
Guess I need to take it to the drag strip next...

around 3000 RPM, and the last one is to around 6500 RPM (normally a no-no
on a cold engine but just for demo purposes).
The much-talked about "burble" of the Exhaust is heard as the RPMs come down after a
The camera is a Canon point-and-shoot set on a collapsed tripod about 40"
from the rear bumper.
