Yes, you read that right. An E34 BMW M5 beat a Bugatti Veyron in a drag race. You’ll probably have to read that a few times to grasp what is actually written, but the proof is on film. This E34 BMW M5 with a monster turbocharger and 900 horsepower to the rear wheels beat the 1,001 horsepower, quad-turbo W-16 Bugatti Veyron.
The two cars raced from a roll and with a sputtering wave of boost, the M5 was able to handily walk past the Bugatti like it was no big deal.
