    • ESS-VT2 625 supercharged E92 manual M3 takes on the new F10 M5 in a roll on race

      Supercharged M3's are definitely quick cars as seen here. The new F10 M5 is no slouch itself but in stock form it is about a 122 mile per hour trap car whereas the M3 should be in the mid to upper 120's. We do not have dynojet numers for the new F10 M5 yet but we expect it to be somewhere in the 480 wheel horsepower range. This ESS kit should be in the mid to upper 500's depending on pulley the owner ran. Impressive result for the M3 considering it is a 6-speed manual. Less weight plus more power makes for a beatdown.

        No , but still..

        I was a race from 100-300 km/h and after a couple of 100 meters all i saw was the fireflames from his exhaust, pretty cool..

        I guess you are refering to Sophie, in a black 458 (tuned) Sorry , no pictures but i belive there is a movie from when we raced.
        It has not been posted yet, but she was 1-2 cls faster than me.
        She pulles away after 250 Km/h, i guess the 458 has less airresistance
