With 400 hp and 780 lb-ft of torque, this insane former Bimmer isnow a drag monster that can gobble up the quarter mile with 11 second passes.But what happens when this outrageous machine hits the drag strip to faceGodzilla, the 1,100 hp GT-R that won't take crap from anybody? As you canimagine, this bizarre matchup and some others make for a very interesting dayat the strip.
