EVO magazines poses THE question: “With 552bhp from its twin-turbo 4.4-litre V8 engine, can the all-new F10-generation BMW M5 sports saloon dispatch its rivals in a drag race? The Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG, Porsche Panamera S and Jaguar XFR provide some stiff competition.

The number of ponies aligned at the start line equal 2,020. All three vehicles are producing individually between 400 and 560 horsepower.
While the BMW M5 and Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG send the power to the rear-wheels, the Porsche Panamera S is an all-wheel drive vehicle.

The Panamera S boasts a twin-turbocharged 4.8-liter V8 with 400 horsepower, clearly the non-favorite here and we wish they would have used the Turbo version and its 550 ponies.

Mercedes-Benz uses a new 5.5-liter V8 biturbo engine instead of the old naturally-aspirated 6.2 liter unit. With the AMG performance package, the E63 outputs 557 horsepower and 590 lb-of torque. The F10 M5 uses a high-revving 4.4-liter (4395cc) turbocharged engine with 560 horsepower from 5,750-7,000 rpm and 502 lb-ft of torque from only 1500rpm.

Jaguar XFR is powered by a supercharged- 5.0 liter V8 producing 510 horsepower and 461 ft-lbs of torque.

Who takes the win? Let’s have a look.

    Panamera too weak.. BMW rules!!!!

    • Asim Quraishi

      I wouldn’t call it weak just because it is not in the same league. I can’t even compare it to the jag. It’s low on torque out of the 4 cars and also on power. They chose the non-turbo panamera because of the price wise.

      I’m sure if they had the turbo one it would have definitely lead the drag race all thanks to its 4wd but that’s about it. We should see it going around the track.

      Personally I love seeing the competition between the oldest and the biggest rival of BMW and that is Mercedes. I really can’t be bothered with the others unfortunately.

    why it says 0-100 kmh 4.4 seconds in official figures????
    merc do it in 4.2 with performance package!

    so WTH?

    official figures are wrong? ha?

    i don’t get it

    anyway – even it’s a boat that m5 is fast

    • n8n

      BMW with sport package (limiter is off) starts from 0 to 100km/h in 4.1.
      Anyway – why there’s no Panamera Turbo? Panamers S produces 400HP, so it’s not the Top Model – Panamera Turbo would win this race, but it doesn’t really matter, cause it’s 4×4. BMW FTW!

      • Mateo

        why theres no official spec for sport package and 4.1s to 100 kmh?

        btw. Panamera turbo isn’t here because it’s more expensive.

      • BMW The Best

        Panamera Turbo wouldn’t win against the M5. The only model that could win is the Panamera Turbo S.

  • leo_maglakelidze

    where is a video?

  • BMW The Best

    There’s only one real competitor to the M5: Panamera Turbo S.

    where the hell is the video ?????

      Updated with new video

  • r56

    the cts-v will beat the f10 by a little only because of the power to weight ratio. and the highest model panamera will beat the new m5 :(

  • Manu

    why the Panamera is not Turbo?… this race is for donkeys, only brute force, i choose lightness, precision and inteligence…

  • Asim Quraishi

    Atleast the m5 blew the merc away.

    You should have at a minimum included the Panamera Turbo. All the others had some form of forced induction and the Panamera S is normally aspirated and only produces 400hp. Not a fair comparison
