DUHHH, they didnt have M5's in 98.... and besides do u really think that a 400hp 5.0L V8 M5 is gonna run high 13's think again... Its a hoss. That being said, the 282hp 4.4L is no slouch, it puts the 740 sport into the 14's, and the 540 weighs a good 600lbs less. Im not preaching about BMW's but wrx is not a match from a roll.Originally posted by dangrass
The data quoted appears to be for an M5, not a 540. 540's are nowhere close to the numbers quoted.
And i wasnt too sure about the bimmers prowess untill i learned that it passes a 300whp car (LS1) at 120mph... and keeps pulling away until the 155mph electronic speed limiter. Imagine what the M would be like from a roll, i wouldnt be comfortable driving an 03 cobra, and seein the green M5 lights comin up on me...
but cheers, im sure the bimmer was maybe being a little playful, but if you know the facts, this was just the wrx going full throttle, and the bimmer just playin with the right pedal.
