If you're a BMW fan you surely wondered which car would win in a drag race between the F10 M5 and the F13 M6, since they both have the same engine under the bonnet.
The S63Tu engine is definitely one of the best BMW ever made. It makes 560 HP and 680 Nm (501 lb-ft) of torque out of a 4.4-liter V8 configuration and, using the 7-speed DCT transmission, easily makes tires vanish in a cloud of smoke if you're not careful.

Actually, the driver of the M6 already knows this as he came to the drag race with his tires nearly destroyed, because of the immense torque his car has. So, with such bad tires, could the M6 still win?

Looking at the stats on paper, things are pretty balanced. The M6 weighs 1,925 kg, 20 more than its sedan counter part. Furthermore, the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) acceleration takes 0.1 seconds less in the Coupe, the M5 doing it in 4.3 seconds.

Still, on a drag race, the driver has its part. That's why the video below might surprise you.
