It's time for 2 titans of the super saloon market to go head-to-head in a quarter mile drag race. BMW's M5 takes on the Mercedes-AMG's E63 S.
If you haven't already seen it, these 2 cars have already faced up in our 'will it drift?' video. Spoiler alert: they do, and we knew that going in, but we had a track and the cars available so why not? Check that video out here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Zjogb7XqNY
Thanks to all-wheel-drive, these 600 hp (450 kW) saloons now reach 100 kph from a standstill in around 3.5 seconds. These are the unlikely new drag race superstars.
The E63 S weighs slightly more than the M5 but has 850 Nm of torque, 100 Nm more than the BMW. But in our experience, BMW seems to have some secret sauce when it comes to taking on the quarter mile.
In one of our closest drag races ever, we bring you two races between these two Teutonic super saloons.
