M6 being filmed is completely stock with the carbon air filters removed which adds 7 hp. The video is shot from an upgraded M6 that has the Carbon Air Filters removed as well, but also has K & N Air Filters, Supersprint headers, Supersprint high flow cats, Supersprint Resonated X-Pipe, Supersprint Sport Mufflers, Dinan 3.91 Differential, Active Autowerke ECU, & Kelleners/Schrick Cam Shafts.
The difference between the 2 cars in approx. 53 HP
507 HP vs. 560 HP
Race is from 2nd gear at from 50 mph - 160 mph. The 507 HP M6 lets off the throttle during the final part of the race due to a car ahead.
BMW M6 Quarter 1/4 Mile Run Video at Moroso Motorsports Park
I was spinning so bad in 1st & 2nd, the only way to get a semi-decent 60 ft
time was to to press the gas half way and short shift at 5K rpm into 2nd -
then floor it. My best 60 ft was a horrible 2.105 seconds. The ET for that
run was 12.2 @ 120.83 (almost 121). I was lined up with 14 sec cars that
were pulling the same 2.1 short times. If I was able to pull a 1.9 like
most of the others on the M5 and M6 boards, I believe I may have turned an
11.7-11.99 or VERY close to it. Also, since I couldnt floor the car early
enough in the game and bring the RPMs higher than 5K, I believe my trap
speed suffered as well. Since I pulled consistant 120s spinning and being
that I was half way on the throttle at the start, I feel I have a 121 car.
Car has full Supersprint Exhaust
including the headers with their cats and resonator. Also has an ECU
upgrade, and filters. Cams were put in the car but Dyno showed no change the peak
video doesnt focus well on the ET on the board when I crossed so you may
have the pause the video to see it.
2006 BMW M6 Quarter Mile 1/4 Drag - 11 second run MISSED
If there was a run that would have pulled an 11, this would have been it.
The 60' short time was a 1.997. Best ever for my car. Unfortunately, I
bounced off the rev limiter going into 2nd AND 3rd! Then to boot, I ended
up shifting too early into 4th! All and all I lost 2 mph off my trap speed
with this run ruining my best shot for an 11 second pass. Temperature was
at 77 degrees and humidity wasnt on my side at 70%. In all seriousness,
this car would run 2 tenths of a second and 2 mph better if in a better
location in the US. Excuses! Excuses! LOL : )

BMW M6 1/4 Mile Drag Strip Race
Not the best launch here (with a 60' short time of 2.035) caused the car to
bog in 1st gear a bit. But on this run I hit EVERY SHIFT PERFECTLY. Not the
best of conditions. 70% humidity and 77 degrees. S. Florida brings on the
worst track conditions. ETs and trap speeds would stronger if done on a
drier cooler location. Nevertheless, time was 12.169 @ 120.38
