BMW F10 M5 with 800hp By Simon MotorSport

For those of you that may not know, Franz Simon is one of the creators of Manhart Racing BMW F10 M5. After his split with the aforementioned company, the road took him to launching a brand new company that specializes in BMW Tuning – Simon MotorSport. First incarnation of their work is seen here with this BMW F10 M5 that sports well over 800 horsepower and 1000 Nm of torque. That’s a mighty increase over the stock setup, which we’re sure produces some neck twisting performance. A stock BMW F10 M5 uses a 4395 cc variation of the S63 V8 engine called the S63B44Tü, which produces 560 metric horsepower (412 kW) at 6000 – 7000 rpm and maximum torque of 502 lb-ft (680 Newton meters) from 1500 – 5750 rpm. This, in conjunction with a dual clutch transmission, allows for some great performance figures: acceleration from 0 to 60 mph takes 3.7 seconds – 0 to 100 kilometers per hour (62 mph) in 4.4 seconds – and top speed is limited to 250 km/h (155 mph), which can be increased to 305 km/h (190 mph) with the optional M-Drivers-Package. 24 km/h (15 mph) short of its de-limited V10 predecessor.
