Cool Acceleration 750il v-12

I have a 1992 bmw 750il with a v-12, when i step on the gas pedal it hesitates for a second before it takes off then it is kinda slow up till 20 mph, after that it takes off, is this normal, i figured with all that hp it should take off pretty quick

....Normally i sugest stage II BUT in your case I sugest Stage III lighting on your right foot I have that issue with my 740iL somtimes... and when that light comes on it means Traction control is kicking in and reducing throttle.... Thus slowing your acceleration.... the trick is pushing the gas to the point where it does Not kick in... and DONT EVER turn off traction control till you have that ability FULLY Mastered...... I did that in my 740iL In the rain..... these cars will scare you with their abilities.... where are you located?
