2019 BMW M5 Competition Drag Races Dodge Demon, Humiliation Is Heavy

Many BMW M fans were displeased with the fact that the Bavarians released the Competition version of the F90 so quickly after the introduction of the standard model, if we might call a 600 hp monster so. Well, the time has come to see the 2019 M5 Competition in action.

Before we move any further, allows us to explain that the title above doesn't cover the whole story. Unlike most of the Dodge Demon of BMW M5 shenanigans we've shown you to date, the one we have here goes way beyond straight-line shenanigans. As such, you'll also get to see the two toys duking it out in terms of a time attack.

Oh, and with drifting being more popular than ever these days, we can also enjoy a sliding comparison of the Demon and the M5.

And this isn't just a matter of which car gets ahead of the other in terms of the various challenges. Instead, you'll also get detailed reports on each vehicle's behavior.

Returning to the drag racing, the slab of America and the German super-sedan duked it out on multiple occasions. And since they battled on a non-prepped surface, the Demon needed some assistance. Well, this came in the form of a rolling start.

Then again, this comparison won't answer all of your questions. For instance, we'd like to see a drag race between the Dodge Demon and the BMW M5 Competition in RWD mode.

Keep in mind that the folks over at Throttle House, who brought us this spiced-up comparo, took sides at the end of the video, telling us which car they'd chose. And you can do the same, be it before or after you check out the video that shows the contraptions being thrown at each other. Spoiler alert: the process might make you change your mind.
