Drag racing: BMW X6 M vs. 666-horsepower Jaguar F-Pace

The video captures a race in a straight line, in which the Bavarian crossover BMW X6 M participated, as well as a modernized version of the British Jaguar F-Pace SVR. The 5.0-liter V8 engine of the latter can now develop 666 horsepower (881 Nm).

On the hacked YouTube channel Carwow, a video was released that shows us a rather interesting drag racing. The race was attended by two powerful European high-performance crossovers – BMW X6 M and Jaguar F-Pace SVR.

However, the race was far from the usual F-Pace. This modernized copy of the car was named by its creators “the fastest crossover in Britain”.

In addition to the aesthetic enhancements and more luxurious interior trim, the Stealth boasts impressive performance specifications.

Upgrades such as twin supercharger pulleys, dedicated intercoolers, a performance air filter and a stainless steel four-cylinder exhaust system allow the 5.0-liter V8 to deliver a devilish 666 horsepower (881 Nm).

These indicators are enough to surpass the Bimmer crossover, whose engine develops power up to 616 hp, even on paper. (750 Nm). The British car also weighs 300kg lighter than the standard BMWX6 M, which should help the former win.

However, all these innovations were not enough. Despite many factors pointing to the redesigned Jaguar F-Pace SVR’s advantage, the BMW X6 M still won the race, but not by a wide margin. In fact, both cars did the same quarter mile (402 meters) race time, but BMW barely crossed the line before the British crossover.

Not so long ago, Automotive News wrote about a race between a 1000-horsepower BMW M5 and several rally cars. A video has appeared on the web that captures the race between three participants in the UK rally race and a 1000-horsepower version of the Bavarian BMW M5 sedan.
