Wink M6 vs. Lambo Murcielago




The M6 had a Dinan chip (almost no power gains), charcoal filter removal and cat-back and that's about it.

next gustav will you show you an M6 beating an F22... and then it will beat a Lingenfelter TT Vette going backwards. then the M6 will do backflips land on the back wheels and wheelie to the finish line and then turn into optimus prime and save the world.

M6/M5's gearing is fantastic. Especially at high speeds.

I must admit some of the results that happen at the event held by Gustav don't seem to match that which happens else where.

As for this video, an M6 beating the daddy of all Lambos. Sorry but that ain't going to happen unless the M6 is very highly tuned, it weighs more and everything. In fact there are other videos proving as much, as in others even the baby Gallardo is giving the M6 a right old bashing and lets faces it that is how it should been based of PTW and everything.

Only if the owner has ever stepped foot in a spa.
I went to a spa a few weeks ago for a hot rock massage thing. Got a date with the hot single owner. She is from Spain. Spa's rule!

This wasn't a Gustav video.

Always curious to see the doubters.

guys, note that this is not an LP640. LP640 would be faster than that

im not doubting the video but to be honest i dont see how those mods would be able to cause an M6 to beat a murcielago. there's obviously something missing here.... at least something I'M missing.....


edit : actually i watched the vid again and it seems like thats the older murcielago, which some have said that the gallardo feels about the same, powerwise. the older murcielagos and gallardos (pre 06) are definately slower then the current ones....

well of course theres the LP640 now and no longer murcielago but you all should know what i mean

I have seen another M6 vs non-LP640 vid where the M6 won.....but the "secret" to the M5 / M6 is the 7 speed box.....4th and 5th are the gears that really set this car apart from 6 speed cars.

If you are referring to your M Coupe, then it's because it doesn't have nearly the power or the transmission to compare to an M6 or even an M5 in a straight line. On a road course, it's a different story... Before you bash the M6, be sure to experience one above the 1/4 mile...

BMW has been making cars that outperform their competition for years. Why is this news to anyone?

Everyone always talks about HP & Weight but there is alot more to it than that
