The output has been reduced to 850 hp and 950 Nm since the vehicle can only generate that much power on a prepared surface while rolling on drag slicks. The Mustang is up next.

But, the M8 prevailed in both rounds, and the audience was in awe of its amazing performance. Ultimately, it was a great event that saw two powerful BMWs demonstrate their racing abilities.

How much power can a 153,000-mile E60 BMW M5 V10 still produce?
From 2004 through 2010, the BMW E60 M5 was a high-performance executive vehicle. A 5.0-liter V10 engine with 500 horsepower and 384 lb-ft of torque powers it.
