Someone Made an 1850-HP Drag Racing Engine Out of a BMW V10

It has two turbos and sounds as wonderful as you'd expect.

I own a 2008 BMW M5—the one with the 500-horsepower V10. Often times I think to myself while driving, "What would this engine be like with two turbos and quadruple the horsepower?" Now, thanks to this drag racing shop in Norway, I no longer have to wonder, because they've done it. It's ridiculous.

, an engine building shop in Skjønhaug, Norway, recently built a top-tier drag racing engine out of BMW's S85 5.0-liter V10—the same one found in my car. Of course, V.S's engine has been completely rebuilt from the ground up with heavy-duty internals and a bunch of other modifications to withstand the force of 26.1 psi of boost from two turbochargers. It's also been destroked to 4.8-liters, and runs purely on methanol. The result is a jaw-dropping 1851 horsepower and 1340 lb.-ft. of torque at the crank. Fortunately for us, V.S Motor recorded it engine dyno testing of the engine. It's so loud, the camera's microphone simply gives up.

.

But the fun doesn't stop there. V.S Motor also has video of the engine in its drag car body laying down some truly quick quarter-mile times. The fastest-recorded run I've seen online is a 6.89-second time at a speed of 333 km/h (around 207 mph). Please, turn the volume up.

.

Now excuse me while I try to get V.S Motor to build this for my car and then figure out how to fit it in the engine bay.
