• IND runs 11.97@119.5 with their basically stock (Eisenmann rear section exhaust) F10 M5 at the dragstrip - 1/4 mile Timeslip

      IND-Distribution with this 1/4 mile pass has now finished their baseline testing on the new F10 M5 and will soon take it to the next level. They took their M5 to the Great Lakes Dragstrip and had Ivan from AMS Performance who has experience launching dual clutch cars take it down the strip. He managed a respectable 11.97@119.50 with what is basically a stock M5 featuring only an Eisenmann rear section exhaust that will not add all that much horsepower but certainly will give the F10 M5 the more aggressive exhaust note it desperately needs.

      The outside temps were not very high for the run but not exactly cold either holding in the 70 degree range making for a Density Altitude of 1144 feet. Basically, this points to the F10 M5 being a ~120 MPH car stock. Good, but somewhat disappointing considering the rear wheel horsepower it puts out. With drag radials in better weather the car is likely capable of a mid 11 second pass in the right hands.

      The timeslip is posted below.

        We need to take the M5 in for the 1200 mile service so they can activate the launch mode.
