    Standard M5? Or the higher horsepower M5? 575 HP, I think?
    In either case, BMW under-rates the HP in its engines. That much is certain.

    575 hp is still way less than 650hp and the weight difference.... I could see if it pulled up top because of the transmission, but it wasn't even close.

    Maybe, but still a huge difference even with the driver factor. I'm disappointed

    Don't know. I think it is standard, not with the performance package or how they call it. But still , it walked it so easy like the Cts v is a 450hp car or smth. Now imagine it against the upcoming m5

    There's more to this story because stock for stock this is impossible. The CTS-V is much lighter( 4,134 vs. 4,387) and has at least a 65hp and 140 lb/ft. advantage. Even if both cars had the same hp the Cadillac should still be faster.

    Should be, but its not. I really hope this is not a regular result.

    Yeah. There has to be something else going on.
    Even if the BMW is severely underrated, the Cadillac is lighter. There's differences with the transmission and driver. But even then it's still not enough to overtake that big distance.

    A 200 mph car all of a sudden can't get out of it's own way.

    Yeah, totally fake the numbers are out from the mags and they show the CTSV much faster than the M5. This is just pissed off M5 owners who are butt hurt and made a fake video to make themselves feel better.
