Evolve F90 M5 at the Drag Strip

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Having proven our F90 M5 at VMAX200 and hitting the golden 200mph speed, it was time to take the car back to Santa Pod to see what it could do in the 1/4 Mile.

Many of you ask for 1/4 mile times, but sadly in the UK we only have one full time drag strip, and the events are not very frequent, and busy when they are on. We joined the GTR Cartel guys on a private day, which also meant we had some good competition for this 4WD super saloon.

We have done a 10.27 on Dragy but wanted to see what we could do on a real track.

Good results!

The only thing I wish BMW would make adjustable LC rev. So you can adjust to what feels the best.

I had similar set up and boy was it spinning tires and most of the time short shifting.

Car looks great

What tire setup do you have? I would get a lot of slippage haha.

This is one of the better videos I've seen in awhile. It gets to the point, shows what it says in the title, and doesn't have obnoxious, loud music playing where you can't even hear the cars.

Great job filming it/editing and awesome results.

Thanks for sharing!

Sounds unbelievable, so good. Looks like 1 second of lag (or traction control) and them bam, just keeps pulling.

I thought you could adjust revs with LC on all M cars? I can on my M3 CS.

Seeing the M5 after seeing all those GTRs really shows how gorgeous the design is. I love the GTR design but damn the M5 is so clean. Especially this one.
