ALL BMW M5 Generations in One DRAG RACE

Here we go BMW fans, this is the one you’ve been waiting for… BMW M5 GENERATIONS DRAG RACE!!

We’ve got every generation of BMW M5, from the original E28 through to the F90, and we’re about to find out just how much the BMW M5 has come along since it first rolled off the production line.

So let’s see how they all compare. Starting with the E28, it’s powered by a 3.5-litre naturally-aspirated straight-six that can deliver 286hp and 340Nm of torque. This power is sent to the rear wheels via a 5-speed manual. Going up against it we have the E34, which houses a 3.8-litre naturally-aspirated straight-six that can put down 340hp and 400Nm of torque. And just like the E28, power is sent to the rear wheels via a 5-speed manual gearbox.

Next up we have the E39, which is housing a 5-litre naturally-aspirated V8 under the bonnet! As a result, it’s way up on power compared to the E34, putting down 400hp and 500Nm. However, it still only comes with a 6-speed manual gearbox, and of course, power is sent to the rear wheels only.

Alongside this though we have the glorious E60, which comes equipped with an incredible 5-litre naturally-aspirated V10! This monster can put down 507hp and 520Nm of torque, with all that power being sent to the rear wheels via a 7-speed robotised manual gearbox.

For the final two cars, we’re switching up to dual-clutch automatic gearboxes. Starting with the F10, it’s powered by a 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8 that sends all its power to the rear wheels. However, the latest generation, the F90, is not only up on power (with 625hp and 750Nm), but it also comes equipped with four-wheel drive!

So will the F90 clean up against the opposition? Or could we have an upset on our hands? There’s only one way to find out… LET’S RACE!
