    My buddy with an Imola Red M5 and I decided to have a little fun run. He's a great friend and a very good driver.

    Special thanks to Shiek Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan for the exclusive use of his private highway in Abu Dhabi.

    Details:
    540I
    DIY intake

    resonator delete, 2.5" crush bent piping to Magnaflow muffler
    JBR flywheel/OEM M5 clutch

    VS.
    M5
    ~425/410 at the crank.
    Conforti Shark tune
    UUC V12 lightweight flywheel/clutch combo
    Driver mod.

    15 roll.

    Enjoy

    True, but in defense of the M5 the 540 in the video is a bit of a factory freak.
    The 540 did dyno 290WHP on a Mustang Dyno with an A/F ratio of 12.0-12.2,which is pig rich for NA. The 290WHP on the Mustang Dyno would have equated out to between 315-320RWHP on a DynoJet. That plus the 540 had the driver mod
