The M5 looks like its stationary!! The GTR dials look like they are part of a toy for a 2 year old!

Yup, the M5 wasn't even accelerating. There is no such gap in acceleration among these top tiered cars. Looks more like a staged event all out for drama than anything.

I had the same results from a standstill. Then tried many times from a 30 km/h roll

My first race was the same result on a traffic light when he engaged his launch control. He went so much ahead that it was stupid.

Would be great to see them actually driving the M5 instead of coasting...

the gtr is 0-62mph in 2.8s with launch control though - there is nothing road legal that can keep up with that as far as I know - maybe not even a veyron SS.

In my case he got such a big jump from a standstill that when we were at around 150 km/h I was still behind him, then we had to slow down due to traffic. But according to my own experience even tuned Evolutions X and tuned Imprezas get big jumps ahead of me from traffic lights. I never use launch control because of BMW's scary manual precautions (why even make it if so many warnings are written about component wear) and I never powerbrake for the same reason.

Speaking of the video, it's clear from the 90% video attention they put on GT-R shooting that it used launch control, but the M5 didn't seem to have used any launch control or even power braking. GT-R is much faster from a standstill and there's no argument, but M5 was driven embarrassingly bad imo.
