We’ve known for a while that 1,000 HP BMW M5 variants exist, but we’ve yet to see how quick they are in comparison to other vehicles on public roads. The explanation for this is straightforward. There are just a few spots in the world where you can let a 1,000 HP M5 go wild without being arrested. Furthermore, such significantly enhanced models are not readily available.
However, every now and again, the planets align perfectly, and movies like the one below may be captured. In the video below, we witness such a beast running full throttle on an unrestricted portion of the German Autobahn. It takes practically no time to reach dizzying speeds, as planned. To give you a better perspective, hitting 196 mph took roughly 25 seconds from a complete stop, and the automobile was still pushing strongly towards the 200 mph+ section of the speedometer.
And it’s not only the first run that’s noteworthy; it’s also the fact that the driver had the opportunity to conduct multiple runs at these incredible speeds. And nothing exploded. It may seem to be a simple chore, but keep in mind that this automobile was not created with this kind of power in mind. In actuality, the F90 M5 comes with ‘just’ 600 HP in standard form. Increasing the power of the S63 engine under the hood to 1,000 HP necessitates some significant alterations under the hood, changes that push everything to the maximum.
The turbos, as well as the intake, exhaust, and cooling system, must be adjusted. Of course, other areas have been examined, even if the video does not specify what modifications were made to the automobile. Even yet, it’s incredible to watch how far these vehicles’ performance can be pushed.
