Your Questions About Bmw M6 0-60

May 13, 2013

Steven asks…

BMW 335i sport vs. Mustang?

Came to a stoplight where the left lane goes onto the on-ramp and the right lane continues straight, but….. a mustang pulls up next to me obviously making enough noise trying to show me that he plans to cut me off in the 1/10 of a mile. Do stock mustang owners not keep up on 0-60 times? I had a full tank and passenger and the Mustang ust fell behind in 1 second out of the 3.7 it took me to hit 60 where I had to let off. I didn’t even have to use full throttle.(test runs i averaged 3.91 in automatic “DS” mode which starts off in M2) Don’t get me wrong I love the look of a Mustang GT and , but please do your homework when you are trying to dead-stop pass a BMW. If you want under 4 seconds it will cost you another $10K less than 4 seconds you will need to dish-out another $18-$22K otherwise you will just look like aa fool. Just Like would not try to play games with a Corvette. Granted this 2010 to 2011 Mustang GT was top of line, and probably did 0-60 in ~5 sec which normal.

On second thought, why do so many US cars try to look like they are “muscle cars” yet they weigh in at over twice the weight but only 30% more power? All it does it reduce performance, while reducing MPG. Mine gets 32 mpg when I drop it down to M6.

Oh, if you don’t believe the sport 335i can do ~3.9 check it out on youtube:

Administrator answers:

“The BMW is the slower of the two, yet it still turns in a 0-60-mph time of 5.3 seconds (4.9 seconds with 1 foot of rollout like on a drag strip) and runs through the quarter-mile in 13.5 seconds at 103.8 mph. That’s what 300 hp and 300 pound-feet of torque in a 3,607-pound sedan will do for you.”

See here’s my problem with your numbers…. A 135i is faster than a 335i… Obviously because they have the same exact power plans however the 135i weighs 400 pounds less.

“Fortunately, there is no reduction in engine size or output. The 135i gets the same 300-hp twin-turbocharged inline six-cylinder engine as the 335i. We clocked a 0-to-60 time of 4.9 seconds for the heavier 335i; the 135i did it in a blistering 4.7, with a 13.3-second quarter-mile at 106 mph. “

Those are not forums…. Or youtube…. That I got the numbers from. They are reputable car magazines.

The problem with your numbers is that if you go by youtube and believe that a 335i can do 0-60 in 3.9 seconds….. Some of the videos even claim 3.7…. Then you have to subtract 2-3 tenths for the 135i’s 0-60.

In other words… A 135i CANNOT do 0-60 in 3.5 or less… Unless you are under the illusion that a BMW 135i has the same 0-60 as a Porsche Turbo.

They are fast… Yes. But the 3.9 0-60 figure you gave compared to the Porsche is only .4 tenths slower…. And the Porsche is not only lighter but has nearly 200hp more than the BMW.

You don’t see any problem with that?
