Recently, we showed you a clip of a 1200 hp Nissan GT-R going head-to-head with a Bugatti Veyron Super Sport and now, here’s a 900 hp turbo-fitted E34 M5 by AG pitted against the Dutchbugs’ Bugatti Veyron 16.4.
The M5 propels past the Veyron in the drag race, much to the amusement and surprise of the people. Although the Veyron gets around 100 hp more under the hood, the triumph seems too easy for the 1993 M5. The E34 generation of the M5 was hand-built at BMW M GmbH in Garching, Germany, from 1988 to 1995. Assembly of the vehicle was done either by a single M employee or a team of M employees and generally took about two weeks.
The European model of the E34 M5 produced 311 hp and 360 Nm of torque from the 3.6-litere straight-six engine. In 1991, BMW increased the engine displacement to 3.8-liter, thus also leading to an increment in the power output to 335 hp. A 6-speed manual transmission came standard in the 1995 model year. It’s crazy that a heavily tuned version of this vehicle flew past the Bugatti Veyron, considering a stock E34 M5 reached 0 to 100 km/h in more than 6 seconds.
