E39 M5 vs. Lamborghini Gallardo and Theory of Acceleration
Disclaimer: All runs performed on a somewhat closed course in the middle of pretty much nowhere with professional stunt drivers! Don't try this at home!
Synopsis: There's a real wise guy on BimmerForums, who tells me that:
1) Gallardo's are slow (which they are, I'm not disputing that)
2) I'm a magazine/keyboard racer (I clearly don't have enough experience to
know what I'm talking about)
3) It does NOT matter what gear you start in when you race, because acceleration due to powerband does not really matter.
This video puts his theory to the test with an E39 M5 vs. Lamborghini Gallardo mini-race ...
So, be proud of yourself, an hour of my afternoon was spent making this video for you, ForceFed7! (there were a couple other posters, but they weren't as persistent). But I have to thank you, you finally forced me to go out and drive my car after it sitting in my garage for 1 and a half weeks.
I will also have a video of me racing an E63 M6 or E60 M5 with bolt ons soon enough.

BMW E39 M5 vs. BMW E60 535i (JB+)
Disclaimer: Please note that this film took place in Canada. The
authorities in Toronto were kind enough to shut down the highway for our
Synopsis: Three pulls between a 2000 BMW E39 M5 Sedan with Exhaust cut out valve and a 2009 BMW E60 535i
with a JB+ tune from Burger Tuning. E39 M5 is at approximately 345rwhp
while the E60 535i with the tune at 60% Boost setting puts down approximately 325rwhp.
Runs include from 30-105, 20-120, and 30-110. Very close runs and the M5
driver is impressive.
Notes: This 535i will be getting a BMS DC Intake and turning the Boost up to 75% or 100% within the next week
and should have a rematch with this E39 next weekend along with plenty
other cars. SUBSCRIBE TOMY VIDEOS AND STAY TUNED FOR THOSE VIDEOS!
