Question Who would win? E34 M5 vs. 335i

Stock for Stock...

We all know about the 335i. Here is a quick spec sheet on the E34 M5

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BMW_M5_(E34)

The car has 310 hp and weighs 3800 pounds.... I am just trying to remember when I drove one for a month.... It seemed really fast.

Thoughts? Why do you think either car is faster?

why, because one runs about 6 second 0-60's and the other runs high 4's. it should be no contest. An E90 330i runs close to the same times and would give it a good race. Besides isn't the 335 faster than everything in the world??

Good point but I remember reading that BMW had really tall 1st and 2nd gears to allow for really good 3rd and 4th gears...

the e34 M5 would probably be left behind. its S38 I6 is not as well suited to a drag race as the e39 V8.
