The newest BMW M5 CS and the «old» Porsche 911 Turbo S was compared in a straight line race

The newest BMW M5 CS and the «old» Porsche 911 Turbo S was compared in a straight line race 1

The Carwow channel, which is famous for its straight-line races involving cars of various classes and brands, staged another duel in drag racing. This time the confrontation turned out to be interested in a number of parameters — different brands, different bodies, different types of engines, and different budgets of cars, since the new BMW M5 CS and Porsche 911 Turbo S converged in the battle on the highway, and not a new or even a previous generation, but in the 997 body.

Porsche is equipped with a 3.8-liter opposed 6-cylinder engine with dual turbocharging, which produces 530 horsepower of power and 700 Nm of torque.

An all-wheel-drive coupe with a mass of 1,585 kilograms wins over a rival in weight and cost, since in the UK the model costs almost half the price of a BMW sedan.

Because we are not talking about a simple BMW 5-Series, but about a top-end modification of the BMW M5 CS. This set of letters and numbers hides a car with a 4.4-liter V8 engine with dual turbocharging, providing 635 horsepower and 750 Nm thrust with all-wheel drive. But the car weighs 1825 kilograms.

Thus, British video bloggers were able to find the answer to an important question — if you want to win races in a straight line, do you need the most modern car for this, or can you save money and choose a sports car of the previous generation?
