Re: Autocar: M5 beats Ferrari F430

I am interested in what they meant by beat Ferrari F430, surely they don't mean the performance (a recent article on motortrend showed 0 to 60mph of 3.8sec., sub 12 sec. in 1/4 mile if I remember correctly, the one about vs. Ford GT). If they're talking about the overall package, then I don't know if I would buy it since this two car so drmatically different.

P.S. but I would still like to read the article, of course

Re: Autocar: M5 beats Ferrari F430

that's like comparing an apple with a orange......
But i think overall the BMW is best, a bit less performance, but more space, better fuel efficiency less depreciation, more comfy etc etc.

Less depreciation? Not here in the USA. Ferraris will trade above MSRP for years to come. I think the M5 represents a very good value.

Re: Autocar: M5 beats Ferrari F430

It looks like a fun test! We (m5board.com) tested vs. the Gallardo, now they do it vs. the F430.
