    • The new F12 M6 takes on an F10 M5 and a Porsche 997.1 Turbo on the highway - M6 impresses

      Two great videos here showing the new F12 M6 coupe going head to head on the highway versus a Porsche 997.1 Turbo and also the new F10 M5. As we have previously seen when the F12 M6 and F10 M5 raced on the highway, the M6 shows itself to be faster than the M5. The difference is larger than one would expect and enough to make the decision easy for a person deciding between the M5 and M6 who wants maximum performance. The weight penalty of the M5 simply can not be hidden.

      The race against the 997.1 Turbo is also quite telling. The M6 is able to pull away rather easily on the highway showing the strength of the S63TU Twin Turbo V8. What would this race look like versus a PDK 997.2 Turbo? Well, BimmerBoost would love to see it.

      Thank to you BimmerBoost member @Ghost. for the videos. His blue M6 is simply gorgeous. But please, please, in the future try to race in an area with less traffic.

        Everything I have seen points to AWD.

        How much does a 997 turbo trap? I think ive seen a stock M6 trap 120-122mph? I wasn't expecting this at all honestly.

        The M6 should be around 122. The 997.1 turbo is around 118. Result makes sense on paper.

        Any newer turbo or turbo S though will win. Any turbo with a PDK as well.
