Next thing, the M5 is fast in the quarter because it has 4wd and matches the Ford GT to 60mph because of that. If you look at their numbers for higher speeds you will see the GT is much faster. Some of that will be due to drag and frontal area but from 60-100mph there is a 0.6 second speed difference which is quite a bit.

I think this is much more realistic:

For the old 600ps/700nm tune in my car and the 30 Jahre M5, check out post 25 here.

Unfortunately they haven't done an F90 Competition review yet.
Not sure I would compare this to the Ford GT as that is a 2 seater and this is a mid size car that seats 5 and can serve as a daily driver grocery getter as well as haul ass. The GT is a lighter car so it probably has more top end speed especially if it dosen't have a limiter or it can go over 200 mph while the bimmer probably has a limiter as it wasn't tested to go that fast and probably loses some acceleration anyway due to power to weight ratio.
