Their latest release features a 650 HP BMW F10 M5 tuned by Hartge with what seems to be a Stage 2 ECU remap. At first, it seems like it's going to race a stock Aston Martin Vanquish, with its 565 HP.

However, the purpose of the M5 driver becomes clear after the first 400 meters when he suddenly brakes. He just went for the 1/4 mile time attack, registering his own best personal record, finishing the sprint in just 12.062 seconds and reaching 193 km/h (around 120 mph).

You know what this means, right? That almost the same exact numbers the stock M6 Gran Coupe achieved on Road&Track's test yesterday. That's stock! For a car that weights almost 2 tones and has only 560 HP (as BMW claims) AND was fitted with a manual gearbox. Incredible!
