Check out this tuned BMW M5 takes on a Lamborghini Huracan in a series of quarter-mile drag races.
We’ve seen DragTimes bust out the Lamborghini Huracan on several occasions. It's usually when he takes on a fairly powerful opponent, but one that doesn’t quite justify the awesome power of the McLaren 720S.
That doesn’t mean the Lamborghini is some kind of slouch. Under the rear engine cover is a 5.2-L naturally aspirated V10 with 602 hp and 413 lb-ft of torque. Zero to sixty takes just 3.1 seconds thanks to all-wheel-drive and a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, and top speed is a blistering 213 mph.
Our opponent is a highly tuned 2018 BMW M5. It has a 4.4-L twin-turbo V8 engine which normally kicks out 591 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque, but that was before it went under the knife. Or wrench, in this case.
A shortlist of mods include a JanLife Performance full exhaust, charge pipes, and intakes, as well as ECU tuning from JanLife and DME. The car has also been given a meth injection system, which has nothing to do with the prohibited drug and everything to do with methanol injected directly into the cylinders. This cools down the cylinder and improves compression ratios while also reducing engine knocking.
Considering the M5 is about 800 lbs heavier than the Lamborghini, we’d expect this car to have somewhere in the neighborhood of 700 hp if not more.
The first few races are marred by red lights on both the BMW and Lamborghini, although the Bimmer seems to have the edge in both shootouts. During the third race, something goes wrong with the M3’s computer and it goes into limp mode, giving it a hilariously bad 22-second quarter-mile time.
It’s not until the final race do we really get to see a fair fight between the two supercars. The Lamborghini gets a good start off the line, but then the M5 just continues to crawl ahead. By the time they reach the finish line, the BMW has gained a clear lead.
The M5 finished in 10.642 seconds at 128.77 mph, while the Lambo finished in 10.732 seconds at 128.53 mph.
It might be time to bust out the 720S, Brooks.
