272hp vs. 160+hp... Who wins?

Well apparently the 160+hp does. I raced a guy yesterday driving a BMW X5 with the 3.0i inline 6 and edged him out. He was definitely trying too based on the look on his face and that he spun the tires launching from the stop light. He seemed to be pretty surprised about me slipping past him.

Oh, and FLAME AWAY!!!

The x5 also only has 225hp (not 272hp) for the 3.0L version and also weighs 4,652lbs. of course you 'edged him out'.

The x5 has 20.6lbs per hp, you've got around 17.5lbs per hp.

Of course a 4.4 or 4.8L V8 x5 has quite a few more ponies then the 3.0 version.

Oh. I must have read the wrong thing on BMW's Web page. Either way it was fun.
