    • PP-Performance tune only F10 M5 runs a 11.4@124.03 1/4 mile

      More tune only 1/4 mile results are coming out for the F10 M5 showing that with a tune only it is capable of low 11 second capability. This car is from the Middle East and the run took place in positive density altitude conditions at the Yas Marina drag strip in Abu Dhabi. So what was the result of the PP-Performance tune? 11.474 seconds at a trap speed of 199.62 kilometers per hour. This translates to 124.038 miles per hour.

      The PP-Performance tune is clearly doing well performing similarly to other tunes available such as the Eurocharged Tune which turned 125 mile per hour traps on an F13 M6.

      It is nice to have some 1/4 mile data from a PP-Performance tuned car as the videos released from cars running the tune have shown performance disproportionate to the data provided here. For example, a recent video of a tuned M6 annihilating a Lamborghini LP-560 Gallardo which based on the data we now have here is not possible.

      Timeslip and video below.

        Are we sure this is tune only? These are the guys who were making the gold plated M5 turbo upgrades. Either way its impressive.

        Yea sounds like it has some type of an exhaust who knows if it's downpipes or just axle back. Stock the m5 is very quiet mostly weird turbo noise that sounds like a UFO

        It's hard to get accurate mod listings from overseas but a tune only car is capable of this. The main reason this is up is to call into question the validity of the race videos presented to us of tuned cars.

        Yes no doubt a legit tune should be capable of this plus more with good conditions. The new Competition package cars with CC brakes are running 123 so a tuned car should def be capable of 124+. Yes these over seas videos are ridiculous never know what your going to get. Like that manhart f10 putting instant train lengths on the c63 bs .. Some seem to good to be true

        That would make more sense, I've seen stock non-CP cars trap this fast and not too far off in the ET as well. 129-120 would make sense for downpipes and tune.

        Here's a RT tune only 2014 E63 4matic Non-S model driven by a customer in NJ, USA.



        Also, didn't that F10 M5 had some fancy gold coated upgrade turbos as well when he did 11.4 ?
