Is the BMW M 1000 RR Fast Enough To Beat The Ferrari SF90 In Drag Race?

Here we have the battle of the winners: the BMW M 1000 RR superbike and the Ferrari SF90 Stradale hypercar.

We’ve seen the BMW M 1000 RR completely obliterate the previous BMW M5 CS in a Bimmer vs Beamer battle, completing the quarter mile in just 10.3 seconds. On the other hand, the Ferrari SF90 Stradale faced the drag race champion in the form of the Porsche 911 Turbo S, and came home victorious.

These two speed machines are undeniably fast but of the two, which is faster in drag racing? Of course, Carwow pitting the two on the runway for the usual publication-only weekend drag races to settle the score.

For the record, the BMW M 1000 RR is a homologated superbike for racing. It packs up to 212 horsepower (158 kilowatts) and 83 pound-feet (113 Newton-meters) of torque that comes from its 999cc inline four-cylinder engine. Without the rider, the bike weighs just 423 pounds (192 kilograms). And since this isn’t a 2023 M 1000 RR model, it isn’t equipped with Pankl’s longer, lighter titanium connecting rod.

On the other hand, the Stradale SF90 is much more powerful with a total output of 986 hp (735 kW) and 590 lb-ft (800 Nm) of torque.

Despite being relatively light at 3,461 lbs (1,570 kg) for a large vehicle, the SF90 is astronomically heavier than the bike. Is it a loss? Well, apparently not.

The video above shows the SF90 completing the quarter mile in just 9.6 seconds, while the M 1000 RR completes the longest sprint in 10 seconds. In the three rounds of sprints, the gap between the two wasn’t even that close. But that doesn’t mean the M 1000 RR went home empty-handed.

It turns out that the M 1000 RR still has a big advantage over the SF90. The video above should show you.
