Well-that is the issue. I have done Duisburg-Berlin in my B8 in less than 3 hours for 550 kms on a sunday morning once...including refuelling and breakfast. To make these average speed you have to drive 250 km/h and more every time you can do it. My measured rear-axle temperature was above 125 degrees celsius.

But thats not the real issue on the G-Power car....

The M-GmbH has built one of the finest free breathing machines on this planet. A 5-Litre, 507 hp, 500 Nm, more than 8000-rpm Monster with an extremely high compression ratio. Packed with a 7-speed SMG 'box, controlled by a computerized Motormanagement and Drive Management with hundreds of possible settings.

Now a small company comes up, bolts 2 turbochargers on this monster machine, gets nearly 50 percent more horsepower, a lot of more torque and so on.

You won't tell me that this car is as bullet proof as a normal M5? That all the needed work is done to make all the systems work properly? Lets think of maybe 20 cars that will be sold-even the high price-tag on the car wouldn't nearly pay the price of these hours.

a friend of mine does a lot of BMW-conversions here in Germany-lets say I have seen a lot of Hartge H50s near Aachen the last years...and he has performed one H50 5.0 Compressor conversion-despite a lot of money spent this car never really drove as it should have. And this conversion based on a normal 4.4 litre....

In these days it isn't easy to get 50 percent power out of a Machine like the M5 E60.

For me the car is a show-car and will be a show car in future...

just my 0.02 D-Mark

Fair comments imho. I own a s/c'd M5, and I can tell you that it required a lot of R/D to get the car to run right. It is still a bit fickle at times, although I'm still crazy about it. Another experience we might look to is Dinan's work on the S3 . Dinan spent an enormous about of time getting the car to run right. By 'right' I think we mean seamlesslly integrated and 'OEM-like'. Happily, the goal was achieved.

The point being that it is one thing to bolt on FI horsepower, quite another challenge to make it OEM feeling. Hopefully a member (or magazine) has the opportunity to really evaluate the car and give an objective review. Until then, I guess we have to assume G-Power has put in the many hours of testing and tweaking that would be needed.
