Not too long ago we were witnessing internet history in the making. A stock BMW M5 was seen defeating a Ferrari FF on the drag strip.

It’s hooked up to a dual-clutch 7-speed transmission and will do 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.7 seconds. That’s because it has all-wheel drive and it is actually the only Ferrari to do so.

If the drag race would’ve been from a standstill, things would’ve been a lot closer but as they raced from a rolling start, the outcome is not surprising at all.
