Given the 15 second spanking the F10 gave the E60 on the 'ring, I would expect about the same.

I knew it was faster, but I didn't know it was by that amount. Amazing achievement considering the weight it's put on

Clarkson said in the previous serious, "That I haven't driven it yet I'm going to love it. There has never been a bad M5."

Haven't seen the gizmos in the F10, but Clarkson hated the e60. . . all the way up until he hit the "M" button! which changed his whole perspective!

Wonder how the f10 gismology will fare?

edit: I hope the "captain slow" bit is a poor rumor. Have to have a direct comparo from Clarkson. . . just wouldn't be right
