2006 M6 vs My 2014 750i xDrive (Video)

Today we decided to race a little with my friend who got 2006 M6 (he takes this video, sorry for bad quality). My 750i is pure stock, no mods what so ever.

I traded my `08 M6 for a then-new `11 750i xDrive MSport and distinctly remember feeling that I wasn't giving up too much in launch and straight-line acceleration. The F01/02 is a real a beast!

And 2014 even faster. My friend was so sure that m6 will be way faster, he was so disappointed.

Mein Auto: 750Li and M3
750ix=
445HP / 480lb-ft
4745 lbs
2.81 : 1 final drive ratio
BMW 0-60 time 4.6

M6 coupe=
560HP / 500lb-ft
4255 lbs
3.15 : 1 final drive ratio
BMW 0-60 time 4.1

Assuming you got to +/- 60MPH there, on paper at least his M6 should be faster than you. A car 500 hundred pounds heavier giving up 115HP and 20lb-ft usually doesn't win in a straight line. Try not to make him feel too bad about it. Need to send your friend to "launch school" ;-)

We did it 5 times, he even tried to jump from the start, (jump is when you hold your brakes and start to accelerate at the same time, and then you release the brakes and your car jumps straight like crazy), but it didn't help. I think he knows how to launch.

Was it all set up for max power? Was it his first time launching?? I have driven a 09 convert and it really didn't wake up until maybe 50 mph. Also, like most of these cars it probably has some issues.

You are in Denver? Elevation?

DOH!!

User Error. Just realized it was a 2006 M6, not a new one. So yeah, would be much closer race with the older model. Well done.

He is not a newbe. He have done it before. And yes, he have 2006 m6, and I have 2014 750ix. No issues with his m6.

Xi versus RWD on launch? Did he turn off DSC and DTC when he brake torqued? Did you get to do any 60/80 to 120 mph runs? That would be interesting to see, too. There is a 500 lb difference between the two cars too, right?

You missed the part where his friend is driving a 2006 M6

Just a guess here but I think a 2013+ M6, even poorly launched like in the video, would've driven around the 7er.

Sorry on the reply, my reaction time is slow in real life......I never paged down, just replied. Maybe I'm just too quick and I red-lighted

Actually, his curb weight is 3909 lbs and you are at 4745 lbs, so the difference is more like 800+ lbs. Plus, he has 50 more horses.

Did he agree to start on the count of 3, or after 3?

Guys, we raced 5 times, even when he started first, my 750i still was winning him any way you put it. And 60-120mph 750i was killing m6. By the way, 2006 m6 don't have turbos, and 2014 750i has twin turbo 4.4 engine. So if you guys just don't believe me, why don't you find 2014 750i xdrive and 2006 m6 and race your self. And then put video here.

I don't doubt you; it's just on paper, you're fatter than him by 800 lbs, and he has 50 more HP. Your advantage is the xi drive. Your video says it all. Assuming he has DTC/DSC off; because of the weight difference, I wonder what it would be like after 100 mph or from a 30-40 mph roll.

I'm not big into street racing, but it is nice to know how our beasts hold up to the competition.

Be careful out there!

Nice job. You also have the 8 speed tranny that he does not have. It is fast and smooth as butter. Nice work!

Even though the M6 might have eventually caught you at max speed it must be gratifying to know that your executive performance sedan can run with the best of them.
