6th gear to 200kph? That's disappointing!

I bet the 535d is similar. Was expecting more...
I don't think that was launch control. The person was still shifting manually (you could clearly hear the paddle clicking). He also had a rather slow shift from 1st to 2nd. I'm willing to bet if the car was just left in D it would have shifted more quickly.

The M5 is my dad's - but I drive it more than he does!

That'd be interesting But all I read was that the M5 will be reviewed on Top Gear by itself.

Got this from a pretty reliable source, I think, but dont know if this is something coming up in the future or in the March episode...

That seems like quite a high red line for diesel?

Will be interesting to see this stacked up against the Alpina D5.

I wonder if this M550D has active sound? Pipe through some V8 or V10 noises.

Well Top Gear did put the E60 535d against the 545i a few years ago. So it could be a possibility:

+ YouTube Video

True, but as i forgot to mention, when looking at the curve.. you'll see that after 4,8-4,9k rpm the power drops a lot! Same thing with torque
