The new BMW M5 Competition retains the same powertrain as the standard M5, but total power output has been increased to 617 hp at 6,000 rpm and 553 lb⋅ft of torque between 1,800–5,800 rpm, enabling it to accelerate from 0–62 mph in just 3.3-seconds. Is that enough to stand up to a 10-year-old modified Porsche 911 (997) Turbo S and a Litchfield-tuned Nissan GT-R? CarWow set out on quest to see who would come out on top in a drag racing showdown. Read more to see the victor.



“The Nissan GT-R Track Pack that’s tuned by Litchfield can produce up to 640 horsepower and 612 pound-feet of torque. It weighs 3,858 pounds with a bit of an advantage with its all-wheel drivetrain. The Porsche 911 Turbo S, on the other hand, is the lightest among the three at 3,638 pounds. It’s also the most powerful with 760 hp and 738 lb-ft of torque. Not bad for a 10-year-old car, really,” reports Motor1.
