I paid 60G out the door for a 2019 charger HC octane edition that’s half the price of an M5 , brand new only 4 miles on it from Cabrals dodge dealership I test drove m3 and CTS-V and the Charger was way more comfortable and better riding then m3 and CTS-V n and I’m a Chevy guy too ud think I’d go for the CTS-V nope honestly the hellcat felt better n it seemed more luxurious to me than the CT’s-v the gauges lagged so bad on the caddy , BMW m3 was nicer but just didn’t have that sound the hellcat does American muscles nothing like it ..... Ooo I’m definetly trading in for a Redeye Charger now !!!!!!

Have a hell cat and f10 m5 hell cat is a torque monster the m5 is just fast at the end the hell cat is slightly faster stock for stock handling is way better on the m5 down pipes and a slight tune the m5 will beat the hell cat

if you choose a BMW over a dodge you are not here to get a vehicle that's fun to drive your here to get a vehicle that you can drive. only a true car person would be able to handle the american beast.

to be fair. BMW is much more reliable than Mercs and Audis.

I don't buy the point that M5's are underrated on power. The Hemi guys are claiming the Hellcat is underrated (not buying that either). It does the car company no good to undervalue performance of the car. And IF they do, it's probably not by a huge difference/margin. Bottom line, the 707 HP Charger is faster. It's a muscle Saloon. The M5 probably handles better (I'd bet next months pay on it). They weigh about the same. One costs twice as much. BMW's are great cars. I've owned 2. They were always in the shop however (after a BMW hits 4 years of age...sell it). Dodges may need visits to the shop after they have a few hard miles on them....but they are FAR cheaper to fix. BMW parts and maintenance is painful.

sure you can compare these 2 cars. But keep in mind. Only 1 of these cars has 10 airbags. And to be honest about branding, and quality, it's about iphone vs xiaomi. The xiaomi does everything a smartphone does and does it well, but it's a xiaomi, and in the long run, you can bet the iphone is going to do better at more things and will be more desirable even if the processor isn't as fast, or the monitor isn't as big, etc... exactly what we have with these 2 cars

the dodge has more hp, costs less, has leather this, aluminum that. it has its own rightful market. But it's definitely not in the same market as an M5

Havent you seen dyno test of M6 Competition ? We are talking about real power not claimed power.

That new M5s and M6s have for real much more power than it is claimed. There are tons of information about that out there.

I think they both have the same power. And wait, 680hp? what!?


User avatar

dddd  6y ago

I havent read how much power for real has M5 Competition but M6 Competition has about 680 HP. M5 Competition has propably less power than that.

What are the exact power to weight ratios of both cars? Anyone know?

I think it'd be safe to say the Hellcat would dominate the quarter mile... But around a track it might be close. They're both pretty heavy, I'd say the M5 having the handling advantage, but the Hellcat with the hp/weight advantage.... It'll be a good comparison.

BOOM! The inevitable comparison. Gonna be a great match-up. I can't decide which side I should put my money. Time will tell.
Drag race + Race track? Predictions?
