Listen up BMW fans - this one’s for you! We’ve got the classic BMW E61 M5 Touring going up against the new BMW M440i!

On the face of it, you may think the E61 may walk it. Powered by a 5-litre naturally-aspirated V10, it puts down a glorious 507hp & 520Nm of torque. Naturally it’s quite heavy though, given it’s the touring, weighing in at 1,880kg.

In comparison, the M440i is powered by a 3-litre straight-six with a single turbo to produce 374hp & 500Nm. However, just because it’s down on power doesn’t mean it’s out of this race! It comes equipped with AWD, launch control, and it comes in lighter than the M5, at 1,800kg.

So what do you think - will they be neck-and-neck at the finish line? Or will the classic M5 storm to victory? There’s only one way to find out… LET’S RACE!

    You should redo this, m5 might have been on comfort400hp mode. Change to 500hp mode and change gear settings to 7. Change suspension to M as well..

    Před 14 dny frustrates me these videos ... Everyone knows old cars haven't got the gearbox or software to get of the line quickly..I have a v10 touring and a 911 turbo x50 996.. Both cars are quick but My v10 m5 will WALK away from pretty much anything from 120mph ...I challenge YOU prove me wrong...a car thats 15 years plus old can and still will walk away from many modern cars after 120mph ...every time you get a driver in a v10 m5 it's like they don't no what there doing ...its Sooooo frustrating...DM Me any time and we can put all this nonsense to 15 year old cars with brand new ones then harping on about how the new ones are faster of the line...I no let's get a 4wd audi and race an rear wheel drive car ..come on matt...weres the fun in that .. Go pick a modern car that's the equivalent to an m5 touring and let's go head to head from 120...upwards ..and let's see 👀...I love your chanel and what your doing but god you frustrate me with these silly races .....

    Does this not just Prove that over priced top end BMW's are just shit and broken after 20 years.?? Where as most other good - AKA Japanese Korean stuff is still working. I bet even a std 530D estate wouldn't have as much bad shit going on. How crap were the brakes.

    I recently bought a car. and I have a suspission that none of your trusted dealers have one in stock and the chance of any of them having one in stock from now and until they all close down is very low. there is probably not much more than 1000 of this model left in the world and more than half of them are in sweden. yes, it is a Volvo. a 1973 Volvo P1800ES

    That M5 was definitely not in the right settings or broken! Did several rolling races with my E60 M5 vs an E92 M3, F82 M4 and M540i and was either as fast or even faster. The M440i cannot be that quick... can it?

    Mat the rolling race is practically unfair for all the races. You should consider the winner by looking at the car which picked up speed well and maintained the speed per roads regulations. Just because you came pass the car that picked up well at 160mph doesn't make you a winner. There us no way you're gonna be overtaking 160mph on normal roads. Thats practically possible but not on our roads with limits and regulations. I would suggest if you judge by which car picked up well upto the limits in your country. Assuming that 150mph is the road limit, Let's say A picked up and left achieving 130 mph then B came passed it at 150(or less)mph, B wins. But if A picked up achieving 150mph then B comes past it at 160mph, A wins because it has observed regulations. B broke them so as to pass you which rules it out. Am a Driver in Kenya and mostly 120kmh is the maximum speed set and sometimes you want to overtake another car going at 110kph but you can't since you would have to drive at 120-140kph to overtake quick which poses risk against safety and also laws of the country. I hope it clear, its just an idea because some of the speed you overtake with in rolling races are practically not just applicable, and unsafe too on our roads.

    They forgot to press the M button on the M5 which 1. Limits the power to around 400hp instead of the full 507 2. Limits the shift speed of the SMG gearbox, which can actually shift very fast in its quickest setting

    The M5 is broken. Or he's in p400ode. This was confirmed when he said all dash lights on and no abs. I do believe the S85 which pulls over 200 mph. Will give the 4 a breakdown after 80 mph it's over. It's clearly broken guys trust me

    Blessings Philippians 4:6-7 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus./inspiration+ Peace. It’s what everyone is seeking. If you ask anyone what they want most in this world, it is likely that they will say, “Peace." This passage lets us know that the peace we seek in found is Christ Jesus. Through Him alone will find that unexplainable peace we are seeking. And we are promised that, when we do, it will guard our hearts and minds. No more will we fight the battles of our minds. No more will have an anxious heart. We are promised the peace of God. And we can rest easy and it will be fulfilled in us./prayer+ Father, I pray for Your peace, which passes all understanding. I ask that You quieten my spirit and my mind. Touch my anxious heart and calm the storm within me. I thank You for this wonderful gift that You have given to me. Amen.

    I dont know what the developers were thinking up till now, the TURBO was available for the last 60 years and instead they built more complex and larger engines than ever during the E60 era. And even now the N63 engines they have called 50i are crap, large displacement V8s with turbos that barely do anything because if they did it would destroy the poorly designed engine block that still is ready to "eat its self" . The B58/S58 is the choice of the engine now, 3L I6 , simple and durable.
