Carwow does a lot of 360-degree POV drag race videos. They’re actually really cool to see, as they allow viewers to see just how much faster certain cars are than others. It gives real perspective of the speed of the cars in the drag races and the distances with which they win by. In this race, the BMW M5 Competition Package takes on the brand-new Mercedes-AMG E63 S and Audi RS5. The 360-degree cameras were mounted to the RS5, so we see the drag race from the Audi’s perspective and we can rotate the view of the camera 360-degrees from there.

On paper, this is an interesting drag race. The AMG and BMW are both big luxury sedans with stonking V8s, while the RS5 is a sporty coupe with a twin-turbo V6. Both the BMW M5 and Mercedes-AMG E63 S also make quite a bit more power than the Audi RS5. Despite that, the RS5 is actually one of the quickest vehicles here. Under the hood of said Audi lies a 2.9 liter twin-turbo V6 that makes 450 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque. As for the BMW M5 Comp Pack, it gets a 4.4 liter twin-turbo V8 with 575 hp and 500 lb-ft. The AMG uses a 4.0 liter twin-turbo V8 with 603 hp and 627 (!) lb-ft of torque.

As soon as the race starts, the Audi RS5’s Quattro grip and lighter curb weight allow it to jump ahead. It takes the lead quick but the AMG’s monster power soon overtakes the overachieving Audi. The AMG E63 S simply storms ahead, gaining a lead it not only never relinquishes but one that it keeps adding to. It’s as if the AMG never stops picking up steam. What a monster of an engine. Sadly for the BMW M5, it lags behind the entire race. While it has quite a bit more power than the RS5, the M5 just can’t catch up.

So the AMG wins the race, with the RS5 coming in second and the M5 lagging behind in a distant third place. It just goes to show the age of the outgoing F10-gen BMW M5 and its struggle with traction. The new F90-gen BMW M5 should be significantly faster and seriously challenge the monster from AMG.

  1. Bmw driver says:

    Would still pick that 30 jahre M5 over all of them, including the new AWD M5.

  2. Terry Cowan says:

    Since it’s faster than the M5, wonder how am M550i would have done? Or M760Li? Limo vs. RS5, AMG.

    • Kaisuke971 says:

      The M760Li is much faster off the line, Carwow did a test with it and pulled off a 11.3s

      • kenny sauray says:

        Sadly, the new M5 AWD will not be significantly faster than the 30 jahre, we are going to have to wait for a competition package to try be even with The E63s, this is just how it is with BMW marketing lately, instead of coming out with something spectacular in the 1st place, they keep adding special models to make more money, M3/M4 is a perfect example of this scheme.

        The last generation E63s was faster than the F10 M5, seeing the time the E63s wagon just smacked down on the Nurburgring it is going to be rough for the M5 again. So us BMW guys will keep that let’s wait hope alive once again

        • disqus_k4reJ0TXQ9 says:

          “us BMW guys” don’t judge cars before they’ve been driven, oracle. Certainly not against tuner station wagons.

    • John says:

      Why do you do this to yourself by asking the most redicilus questions?

      • disqus_k4reJ0TXQ9 says:

        So you can learn to spell.

        • kenny sauray says:

          Can you point out the Tuner station wagon? And who is the tuner? If you are going to argue, at least make an effort to do some research or we may think that you are either salty or lazy

          • disqus_k4reJ0TXQ9 says:

            You know nothing about AMG.

          • kenny sauray says:

            Oh ok. I know about the E63s, the Project one hypercar and the AMG GT R does that answer your concern?

          • disqus_k4reJ0TXQ9 says:

            AMG predate all, hypercar is British.

          • kenny sauray says:

            Vaporcar is British? If you meant Hypercar, that’s the product of the Mercedes-AMG F1 team, which is based out of Brackley. They have won 4 formula one championships and doing something totally unique. As for the E63s and AMG GT R, they are also products of Mercedes-AMG and they are amazing machines, don’t know exactly what your problem is. But stop being so salty! Sounds like a 12 year old

          • disqus_k4reJ0TXQ9 says:

            Without Daimler’s corporate cheque book none would exist, Mercedes never had the know-how, your Mercedes-AMG has only existed a few years. Like VAG buying Lamborghini or Bentley – VAG didn’t make them any more than they make VWs.

          • kenny sauray says:

            Kid, don’t try to teach me about these companies, you would get crushed. My knowledge if far far more ahead of yours. Stick to the main subject and stop sounding like a 12 year old throwing tantrum because parents took away your candy.

          • disqus_k4reJ0TXQ9 says:

            Not a single word you shovelled is accurate, true or real. Kid.

          • kenny sauray says:

            How about the words? E63s destroyed the M5 30 Jahre. Stop acting dumb!

          • disqus_k4reJ0TXQ9 says:

            Don’t like Mercedes, never have, never will, don’t care. So sad there are no Mercedes pages online for you.

          • kenny sauray says:

            Thanks for showing others your true colors. This is ignorance at its best folks. This has nothing to do with whether you like a brand or not, the fact is the Mercedes E63s beat the M5 30 Jahre and that is one hard cold fact that your fanboism can not beat.

            I’m a BMW owner as well as many other cars, no need for online pages. Thank you

          • disqus_k4reJ0TXQ9 says:

            NO ONE cares.
            STILL the wrong page.
            No ignorance.
            Preference.
            Been following these brands since 1970.
            Mercedes are dull.
            Since I will never own either of the models you cite, why would I care?
            You’re the troll making it personal.
            Right?

          • kenny sauray says:

            When a fanboy feelings get hurts by hearing he truth.
            You care, otherwise you wouldn’t be here on this subject about a Mercedes, a BMW and a Audi. The thing here is you think because this is a BMW blog we shouldn’t give credit to the E63s, well, here and outside of this blog, others are giving it all of its glory and credit and only hopping the M5 can match it. If there is a troll here, it’s you

          • disqus_k4reJ0TXQ9 says:

            You are not the truth.
            Also the only troll on BMWblog typing about Mercedes.
            Dull.

          • kenny sauray says:

            Let’s try to educate you 1 more time. Here is the subject matter. “VIDEO: BMW M5 vs Mercedes-AMG E63 S vs Audi RS5 360-degree race” you too dumb to get it

          • disqus_k4reJ0TXQ9 says:

            There is nothing to learn from you.

          • kenny sauray says:

            Wrong page? This a website with subjects related to BMW and here is the subject matter. “VIDEO: BMW M5 vs Mercedes-AMG E63 S vs Audi RS5 360-degree race” Go be a dictator somewhere else! On the internet we have the right to voice our opinion and you lost this one

          • disqus_k4reJ0TXQ9 says:

            Disagreeing with you is winning.

          • kenny sauray says:

            I’m not winning, I’m kicking your butt

          • disqus_k4reJ0TXQ9 says:

            Kmb.

          • kenny sauray says:

            Defeated!

          • disqus_k4reJ0TXQ9 says:

            Good. Take your pos Mercedes & leave.

          • kenny sauray says:

            😭😭😭😭😭 You wouldn’t be crying if you were a carguy instead of a brand whore

          • disqus_k4reJ0TXQ9 says:

            Another false, delusional statement.
            You’re consistent.
            Consistently boring.

          • kenny sauray says:

            Kid, it has been all about BMW this BMW that with you, you are a brand whore. Like I said, I like every brand and gives credit where its due

          • disqus_k4reJ0TXQ9 says:

            I don’t come to BMWblog to read about lesser brands.

          • kenny sauray says:

            They cannot be lesser brands if They are making faster cars, better technology, more luxury, better performance and more expensive and they are the #1 luxury brand in the world. You need to think before you type.

          • disqus_k4reJ0TXQ9 says:

            Why?
            You don’t.
            What part of I DON’T LIKE MERCEDES don’t you understand?
            You’re STILL on the wrong page.
            Banned everywhere else?

          • kenny sauray says:

            Are you on crack? This is crackhead talk. Your ignorance is killing you, no one here ask you to like Mercedes or any other brands, but making when denial sets in it gets pretty funny when you are dealing with brand whores. Such a shame, get off this blog! You are making all of us look bad

          • disqus_k4reJ0TXQ9 says:

            You make you look bad.
            I should leave BMW blog because I like BMW?
            I would have to be on crack for that to make sense.
            You’re on BMWblog to type about Mercedes & I’M the brand whore?!

          • kenny sauray says:

            You are giving us BMW owners a bad name. Please leave! Here is what you are crying over! The Mercedes is obviously much much faster

          • disqus_k4reJ0TXQ9 says:

            You just don’t get it, do you? BMW went from unknown to #1 by being an ALTERNATIVE to Mercedes. If fastest is the issue, where’s your Hellcat video? Really don’t understand why you continue typing when you have NO credibility. About anything.

          • kenny sauray says:

            No, you don’t get it, the subject is about BMW, Mercedes and Audi, there is no Hellcat here. You simply looking for a rock to crawl under because you got owned.

          • kenny sauray says:

            It will always be BMWblog, nothing will change that and we will always talk about other cars in the BMWblog. You are completely insane and I’m loving it

          • disqus_k4reJ0TXQ9 says:

            Because you can’t get attention anywhere else.

          • kenny sauray says:

            I guess so. This is amusing😭😭😭😭

          • disqus_k4reJ0TXQ9 says:

            For a troll.

            You ran out of gas kid

          • disqus_k4reJ0TXQ9 says:

            Not your kid, your comments are gassy.

        • John says:

          You are still stuck in your own bubble.

    The E63s is just a beast. Can’t wait to get a nurburgrin time on it.
    Sadly, the new M5 AWD will not be significantly faster than the 30 jahre, we are going to have to wait for a competition package to try be even with The E63s, this is just how it is with BMW marketing lately, instead of coming out with something spectacular in the 1st place, they keep adding special models to make more money, M3/M4 is a perfect example of this scheme.

      Who replaced your keyboard with a shovel? Stinks in here!

      • kenny sauray says:

        Salty much? It is called facts. Deal with it!

        • disqus_k4reJ0TXQ9 says:

          Facts?
          1. Bmwblog
          2. Mercedes suck
          3 You’d have nothing to shovel if M hadn’t forced M-B to buy their former employees’ tuner – where do you think AMG comes from?

          • kenny sauray says:

            OMG, what is this salty kid talking about? 1 BMWblog, yet the subject here is about a BMW, a Mercedes and a Audi.
            2 Mercedes, if Mercedes sucks means that BMW is worst, because the last time I checked Mercedes was making better performance cars and better luxury cars.
            3. AMG has been part of Mercedes since ever and been a M division competitor and you crying because their products are as good or better? I don’t have time for your nonsense. Go away!

          • disqus_k4reJ0TXQ9 says:

            Wrong. AMG existed for 4 decades before Daimler bought them, before that they went to Cosworth for performance engines. As with many manufacturers, it took BMW M to prove a performance division was viable. You don’t have time for reality. You should take your own advice.

          • kenny sauray says:

            Wow and now they are crushing the M division. Ok, maybe you should rethink about making dumb comments on the internet. Every company and tuner started the same way, stop making a fool of yourself! The fact is the E63s beat the Rs5 and destroyed the M5 30 Jahre, this is a fact. Nobody cares about history of where they come fro m, Mercedes created the 1st car, should that make any other manufacturer less special? Stop the hypocrisy!

          • disqus_k4reJ0TXQ9 says:

            I state fact, not hypocrisy, you shovel bull. AMG don’t have the model range M does, BMW build M engines, Mercedes had to buy a supplier for engines, you don’t know what crushing is. You also don’t know what a skunkworks is, M have been in house always.

          • kenny sauray says:

            AMG doesn’t have the model range M does? Ok, you must be new to the world of cars, I’m not even going to debate that, this is too funny, there is a AMG model for every damn Mercedes out there. So much so that AMG sold over 100,000 cars last year vs 40,000 cars for the M division. You should do your research
            M division and AMG are exactly the same kid, AMG handbuilt their engines while BMW still outsourcing their ZF transmission just like everybody else. See what I mean by calling you an hypocrite.

            Doesn’t matter which one of the 2 has been in-house the longest, the fact is both serve the same purpose. And AMG is crushing the M division.

          • disqus_k4reJ0TXQ9 says:

            ZF is the name of the manufacturer, of course it’s outsourced, most auto parts are. AMG don’t even have a 6 cyl., so much for a full model range, Mercedes are still playing catch-up there as well. By your measure of volume as success then VW GTi crushes AMG were only brought in-house because of M, so yes, longevity matters.

          • kenny sauray says:

            Kid, you are wack! You lost here.you are all over the place. The subject here is the M5, E63s and the RS5, stop reflecting!

          • disqus_k4reJ0TXQ9 says:

            STILL BMWblog. And the BMW in the “comparison” is no longer produced.

          • kenny sauray says:

            Still doesn’t change the main subject which is between the M5, the E63s and the RS5. The E63s won, the RS5 2nd and the M5 dead last. It seems like you are one of these fanboys who cannot deal with facts

          • disqus_k4reJ0TXQ9 says:

            Get back to me when they test a vehicle BMW is actually still producing.

          • John says:

            Well done KENNY. This guy is so ill informed.

          • kenny sauray says:

            That was an embarrassment. Glad he deleted his comments

    I like the video and the articles that are posted here, and I enjoy these comparisons that provide information and entertainment. But please check your article for grammatical errors before blogging..it makes you seem down to Earth- but gives the impression that you’re less of an expert. Other than that, I love it! Keep it up!
