We’re presenting this largely without context, because frankly we have none, aside from what you see: A Bugatti Veyron, that 1,001-hp hypercar that basically ends all conversations about fast, powerful super-machines, lined up against . . . an old BMW M5? So, they line up like they’re gonna roll-race (which is a dumb thing, but anyway). And then? Well, it’s sort of hard to explain, because it damn sure seems like that ratty old Bimmer just walks away from the Bugatti.
It all happens kinda quick, and since we’re victim to the shaky, unclear viewpoint of a hand-held camera in the passenger seat, we can’t really say for sure what happened here. Maybe the Bugatti driver was sandbagging? Maybe he didn’t go full-throttle until that BMW had already started pulling away?
Or maybe that nasty-sounding BMW, which seems to have some flagrantly severe traction troubles, is just that freaking fast. Here, take another gander from outside the car.
We have questions. Questions such as “what the hell?” And “wait no, but really, what the hell?” If you know anything about this ridiculous BMW, we’d love to know about it. Til then, we’ll just sit here scratching our heads and watching this on repeat.
