Having recently been behind the wheel of the all-new BMW X5M, I have to say that it is one seriously fast sport-utility vehicle. Also keep in mind that the X5 is not a small SUV by any means. This thing is HUGE.

BUT, can it take on a Chevrolet Corvette ZR1?

That's a mighty tall hill to climb. After all, the C6 ZR1 is a purpose-built sports car with carbon fiber bits, over 600 horsepower at its disposal and a huge weight advantage. Seems like, on paper, it should be a HUGE win for the 'Vette. Keep in mind this assumes the C6 driver utilizes launch control and doesn't screw up their shifting.

The BMW benefits from all-wheel drive, launch control and some staggeringly fast shifts via the X5M's transmission. Oh, and don't forget the low-down torque thanks to the turbos.

So, who wins? I'll let you find out...

**Please note: the X5M is listed as an Evotech — who knows what mods it may have, they're not listed
