Modified LS3 C6 Corvette versus a modified E63 M6 from a dig
It is not often you see E60 M5's or E63 M6's racing from a stop as the SMG is tough to launch and BMW gave the US version of the cars crippled launch control. In the US the cars just launch from 1800 rpm which is hardly enough revs for the S85 V10 with its 8250 rpm redline. The car in this video has the Euro launch control which allows launches up to 5000 rpm with different clutch modulation and clearly makes a big difference from a stop with the 7-speed SMG III transmission.
Both cars are modified. The C6 is an automatic sporting the 6.2 liter LS3 with intake, headers, and tune. The M6 has a tune, filters, de-cattted stock headers, and a pulley.
The C6 gets a slight lead out of the hole but the M6 is able to catch and pull quickly and strongly. Nice to see an S85 V10 running from a stop for a change as owners are usually running it top end from a roll.
