The difference between the new M5 and M6 in acceleration - F13 M6 versus F10 M5 roll on race videos
Great comparison video here showing the difference between the F10 M5 and the F13 M6. Both cars have the exact same dual clutch transmission and 560 horsepower twin turbo 4.4 liter S63TU V8. So what's the main difference between the two? The weight of the cars with the F13 M6 curb weight at 4088 pounds
and the F10 M5 curb weight at 4313 as measured on an independent scale
. That makes for a difference of 225 pounds.
225 does not sound like much but in practice in the video, it sure makes a difference. In all fairness to the M5 the M6 does have an Akrapovic rear section exhaust (basically a muffler) which was good for 7 wheel horsepower. Regardless, that 7 wheel horsepower and 225 pounds combine for car lengths against the M5. The reality simply is the F10 M5's weight hurts it.
