A bit off topic but no harm done

Hey guys im sure you've heard by now and long before that they came out with the new X5 M and X6M, when you compare the X5 M to the Jeep Gran Cherokee SRT8, which of these would be believe to be faster.
I have seen quiet a lot of the SRT8's Drag Race and they are quick... now if SRT8 would race the new X5 M, with 555HP and 500ft/lb's of torque which one do you think would win ?

Take a look at this,
Nick Heinfeld, F1 Driver, tested the new X5 M, and compared it to the 2008 BMW E92 M3, and said that the laptimes where the same at Nurburgring.

i am guessing the m3 excels in the curves and the x5/x6 M just powers through all the straights.

Jeep SRT8 only has 420 hp and 420 torque. It may even end up being a heavier car. X5M wins.

The jeep is definitely the lighter of the two weighing in at 4819 compared to a 4.8i 5335 (don’t know the M's weight but I highly doubt it would be lighter), but i believe the M would still be faster due to the difference in power and knowing BMW it will have some major power under the curve with them turbo’s strapped on.
