The monster truck F85 BMW X5 M takes on the BMW M5 Touring on a drag strip and with a rolling start. The drag race between the two Ms is as fair as it gets, both cars deliver over 500 horsepower, with the X5 M having the edge, but weighing more. The M5 Touring uses the S85 V10 5.0 liter engine producing 507 horsepower and 520 Nm (384 lb-ft) of torque. The almighty E61 M5 Touring weighs 1,955 kg (4,310 lb).

BMW’s second generation X5 M use a 4.4 liter V8 TwinTurbo engine making 565 horsepower and 750 Nm (554 lb-ft) of torque. It has a curb weight of 5,260 lbs (2,389 kg).

With a standstill start, the X5 M would have the advantage, thanks to its xDrive all-wheel drive system, but from a rolling start, the monster V10 engine might just pull a win.
