BMW M5 1000hp v M5 Comp v M550i - DRAG RACE

Need help buying your next car? Click the following link and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!

Thanks to Evolve for lending us their M5 -

Are you a fan of the BMW M5? Then you’re going to LOVE this… It’s the ultimate BMW M5 showdown!

We’ve got Mat in the all-new BMW M5 Competition, and he’s going up against the new BMW M550i and Evolve’s incredible 1000hp M5!

So how do the stats stack up? Well there’s one thing which is the same across all three cars - they’re all powered by a 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8. However, that’s where the similarities end! While the M5 Competition can produce 625hp \u0026 750Nm, while the M550i may have exactly the same engine, but it only puts down 530hp \u0026 750Nm.

As for the tuned M5 - well that engine’s been custom built so that it now produces a ludicrous 1,000hp \u0026 1,100Nm of torque!!

So you may not be surprised by the winner, but the question is, just how dominant will the tuned M5 be following the £30,000 engine rebuild? There’s only one way to find out… LET’S RACE!

    The 1000 hp BMW and five when I cross the line I think it was like at 120 miles an hour which is so quick surprisingly maybe that’s why it almost went out of the runway no wonder so close to having an accident it’s called thousand break horsepower are you kidding meThe 1000HP m5 even looks the most expensive
