Thumbs up F80 M3 VBOX Acceleration Results: 4.2s 0-100kmh / 0-62mph

Ok,
VBOX Data is in, Finally.

The weather was still not optimal. I tried going to an area outside the city, but it was still hot. The temperature was still 27 degrees Celsius.
I had no passengers in the car this time, but the road was not very sticky, but what to do. There was also a slight bend in the road at the end.

I did launch couple of times and kept on getting 4.2 seconds to 100km/h (0-62 MPH).

I didnt use the 1 foot roll out feature in the Performance Box.

Here is the video of the run:

The data is as follows:

Wow, those are some impressive numbers!!!

0-1000m in 22.0s @ 246km/h. Thats pretty close to the factory quoted 21,9s time.

1/4 mile in 12,2 with a 191,5km/h trap speed. Thats 120MPH trap speed!!!! Stock M5's trap around 120-122MPH AFAIK.

Don't remember the other comparable M5 times at the moment (like 0-200 or 0-250) but it seems like you are pretty close!!!

BTW: Noticed that it didn't shortshift from 1st to 2nd on this run. It revved all the way to 7000rpm before shifting up (still 600rpm before the redline, but not at 6000rpm as in your last video. More traction perhaps?)

EDIT:

BMW M5 (non CP) does 0-200 in 13,0s - The M3 did a 13,4s...

BMW M5 CP does 0-200 in 12,3s

Thanks OP, great post as usual

Others with more knowledge on numbers will chime in and this data will be debated a lot for sure. All I can say that, given that your conditions were a bit less than ideal, these look expected level of performance and in confirmity with BMW advertised numbers. However, I now doubt that real world numbers of the new M3 will be 'greatly' better/faster/lower than manufacturer data. My bet the engine dynos will also show a relatively less 'underrated' engine power and tq vs advertised data, not following the previous turbo engines of BMW.

I think this is 'really' around 4.0 sec to 100 km/h car at its best and engine produces very similar to what they told us already. So, a bit different than 1M or F10 M5/M6 which were clearly underrated, probably to guarantee advertisement of a large delta of performance as much as possible vs E9X M3s in order to overcome the controversial fact of passing from a NA V8 to a TT in-line six.

The thing I like is that it was repeatable and easy to get.

Just M1 (which I set on DSC off and S3) then brake, accel and GO!

BTW
I think with more traction, the car can go faster since you can increase the RPM accordingly. It is just a matter of finding the right road for all of this.

Most use a one foot roll out which will give you a better time. There was some wheel spin to. With the 1 ft roll out, you might have hit 3.9. The 1/4 mile at 12.2 @ 118 mph is pretty awesome and probably bang on if you take into account not using the roll out and the 2 meters more needed for a 1/4 mile. I think with less wheel spin an 11.9 is doable.

You can also play around with short shifting at about 6200 after 2nd gear as others have recommended.

You're a champ. Thanks!!!

Don't think there is anything to gain by shifting at 6200rpm. It still develops more torque at the wheels than it will in the higher gear at that rpm. I believe that for the S55 it's just over/around 7000rpm in most gears that will give the best Acceleration in most gears.

191,5km/h is 119MPH BTW

It's actually 118.9 mph . Which on the drag strip because you act the last 60ft would be around 116mph . The 121 traps you quoted are from the strip or avg last 60 ft speeds from mags not raw GPS data . The 60-130 mph is >10 sec so it's over 1 sec slower than a standard M5 at those speeds ( the fastest stock 60-130 m5 time we've seen is high 8.6 . It gets to 200 km/hr which is a little over 124 mph in 13.x seconds . My M6 CP did 0-130 mph in 12.x seconds and 8.19 60-130 mph stock so it's about 2 sec off my car in both respects . ( that's a lot , and puts to rest any is it faster than an M5/6 talk ) . It also is clearly faster than an E92 M3 in both trap and 60-130mph so we can put that to rest too .

I don't think BMW would be dumb enough to let the M4 get to be as fast as the M5 stock vs. stock, same way even the n54 wasn't compared to the s65.

118 mph, i was dead bang on... lets wait for cooler temps. Although Vbox data can be sketchy at times.

191.5 km/h is 118.9925833134 mph, so it's more like 119.0 than 118.9 mph.

Not bad at all

And my stock M6 did 127.485 mph at 28 degrees C . It's fast but 8.5 mph trap difference is bus lengths from a roll .

Yep... 8 mph is massive... the M5/m6 would run away, I guarantee it but only fools didnt see it that way.

Sorry. Thanks Boss. Can you help me with trying to calculate HP from these numbers? When I use an online tool and us 3762 for weight (3562 as weighed in this forum plus another 200 lbs for driver and extras), I get 507.69 using a 119 mph trap and 409.47 using a 12.2 ET.

I think swamp or one of the other guys would be better at doing this than me

Usually trap speed is the best indicator of HP. But over 500hp seems a bit high...
