talking BMW M5 E39 vs Porsche Carrera GT ;)



After a brunch I took a little trip with a friend this Saturday. At the "end" of an island it is a stop and U-turn since it is a ferry roll on harbour. When I left the ferry I see a red car approaching, and I think to myself, it cant be a Porsche Carrera GT But it was. I made a U Turn and seems like he just tuned around and hit it

I also hit it and because he was in front with hidden corners and bends he had to take it somewhat easy, so I manage to chase him for a good 20 minmutes on these countryroads

My friend did not have the best cell phone camera but managed to capture the sound at least = wonderful!

FInally we managed to go up next to him at a stoplight and the two persons in the car where laughing alot and the passenger dida "mini applaud" with his hands

A great way to end a Saturday afternoon!

G,

Nice Video...you kept up with him

Mods: 91 octane with occasional 100 octane

" Despite its supercar attributes, the M5 still doubles as a soberly practical, spacious saloon - only with the ability to scare four passengers in comfort all the way to the local coronary unit". Top Gear

Surreal...

My family's country house is right there, drove that road many of times growing up!

'03 LMB/Caramel
Dinan 3.45, JRZ stage 3, swaybars, strut brace, short shifter, sf
V1/Stealthone and LI - when V1 won't help...
Black kidney's, iBright V3 angel eyes, HID fogs, and tint
Illuminated M5 door sills (now that's very, very cool!)
Magnaflow 14816s, euro brake ducts
To come:
Nothing - the mod itch has been scratched enough...
