BMW E63 M6 vs Nissan Micra Gen 1 Drag Race

We’ve seen it all up until now: M6 defeating a GT-R from a standstill, 1000 HP Supras and a lot of Ferrari 458s getting it from various powerful Bimmers.

We even saw monstrous E30 M3s going at it around the world and now it’s time to see if an older M6 (E63) can keep up with a Nissan Micra Gen 1.

Nissan recently rose to supercar manufacturer status with its GT-R that is capable of doing things otherwise considered impossible and against the laws of physics but could the Micra share some of its DNA?

Originally, the car we’re looking at here was fitted with a 1.2-liter 4-cylinder engine making 54 HP and 93 Nm (69 lb-ft) of torque. Along the years it might’ve lost some of its might but it only weighs 740 kg (1,631 lbs) so it’s pretty darn light on its feet. It could be surprising on the track.

On the other hand we have a 2 ton BMW M6 using a naturally aspirated V10 5-liter engine making 507 HP and 520 Nm (384 lb-ft) of torque with rear-wheel-drive. Could the rolling start and the extra power be enough to make up for the weight difference? Check it out!
