[VIDEO] 1,000 HP BMW M5: Autobahn’s Four-Door Supercar Revealed

The pursuit of extreme performance never ceases, with horsepower battles raging on. The M5 Competition LCI, a gem from the previous F90 generation, came factory-equipped with over 600 horsepower. However, the owner felt the need for speed, opting to push the V8’s horsepower into the four-digit realm.

UK’s MR Vanos tuning firm has expertly fine-tuned the super sedan’s twin-turbo 4.4-litre engine, now boasting a stunning 1,000 horsepower. Sporting a Frozen Deep Green Metallic paint job and bronze accents, the M5 now mirrors its M5 CS sibling. It’s equally impressive, with the “S63” delivering a staggering torque of over 1,200 Newton meters (882 pound-feet). These power stats propel the M5 into the supercar league.

Where else to flex these numbers but on an open stretch of the Autobahn? The vehicle clocked 62 to 124 mph (100 to 200 km/h) in a swift 5.12 seconds. That’s a 0 to 124 mph sprint in a mere 7.73 seconds and a quarter-mile in just 9.85 seconds. This right-hand-drive powerhouse achieved an impressive 62 mph (100 km/h) in 2.61 seconds, shaving off about three-tenths of a second from a standard M5 CS’s time.

Driving this car might be thrilling, but we’d likely keep the all-wheel drive engaged, given the sheer power of its 1,000 horsepower. Even in 4WD mode, you can sense the wheel spin. Sending all that power to the rear axle alone could create a lively ride.

BMW is gradually moving to the new mild-hybrid “S68,” rendering this engine a relic. Like the old “S63,” the “S68” sports a twin-turbo, 4.4-litre V8 setup. The next-gen M5, offering sedan and wagon variants, will feature a partially electrified ICE. We expect an aggregate output of over 700 hp and rest assured, tuning enthusiasts will squeeze out more power from this combustion engine.
