Dragrace X5M 2015 in Long Beach Blue vs Corvette ZR 1 with 647hp

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
I assume the guy in the Corvette ZR 1 had to resign just after the race....



PS: By the way, these are the first moving pictures I have found with an F85 in LBB

Looks like he needs less HP, then maybe he wouldn't burn out for 20 yards...

Not to rain on the XM's parade but the ZR1 had a horrible start.

All the vette needs are proper tires and a better launch and it'll rock the X5M

i remember one time in al Wasl road in Dubai, one Range Rover Sport with V8 smoked me when the traffic light turned green .

Thats the thing when you combine tons of hp , torque and rwd .

Absolutely normal under those circumstances .

Only a few cars such as the porsche 911 GT3 could do it better against the X5M due to N/A motor and very sophisticated engine,transmission,and grip .

It's the front wheels that count, not the bumper. X5M's bumper over the line also.

Although I agree the vette had a bad start, it also was over the line to start. Theres also something to be said for a car that can reliably and consistently put down its power and for an X5M to do this well against a ZR1 says a lot.

Whats the point of drag racing side by side or even drag racing at all if you want to compare what the car should have been able to do with another driver or different tires or etc...

The ZR1 does the 1/4 mile in something like 11 seconds. As much as I love the X5 and X6M this 5,000+ lb Suv stock, cannot beat the ZR1 in any timed competition with two skilled drivers. My only thought is the driver didn't know what he was doing, made a miss shift or the X5M was seriously modified.

Like everyone else said, the ZR1 guy can't drive/never drag raced, but that's obvious before the race even starts when he tries to line up the rear wheels and they have to tell him to back up!

Looks like the vette is sporting a set of drag radials. Rear wheels/tires are different then fronts. And he is rolling back from what was likely a burnout to heat the tires. I'd say this was a fair fight. The launch is everything and the x5 hooks up as you would expect from AWD.

That was the shittiest drag race video I've seen in a long time and it's featured on the Bimmerpost News? Lmao.

The Vette driver had a horrible launch and pretty much gave up. Moreover, the X5M has AWD. A soccer mom could launch it perfectly time and again - oh wait!

Do a rolling race and the ZR1 will annihilate that grocery getter.
