Supercharged M power vs. turbo M power - Active Autowerke supercharged E92 M3 vs. a tuned F10 M5
Interesting matchup here that is great to see as two different M engine philosophies battle it out. The M5 is the camera car but unfortunately a cell phone camera is used by the M5. Still, the video is clear so you can see exactly what happens. The modifications on the M5 are a Stage 2 tune that is not named, downpipes, and a custom straight piped exhaust. The E92 M3 is supercharged with the Active Autowerke Gen 2 Level III supercharger system.
On paper this should be a good a race. Depending on how aggressive the M5 tune is along with the bolt ons it can show ~600 whp
. Depending on the M3's boost it is also in this range
. The M5 of course has much more torque which it also needs to move its roughly 800 extra pounds.
In practice it is a good race as the cars are dead even. They both appear to be DCT models so driver skill is not a large variable. A good run from two fast M cars going about their power boost in different ways.
