Just watched it and downloaded it with video capture software so i could care less if it is removed later.. Tks London Mike
No question really if the new car is faster.. 6+ car lengths and f10 built lead as speed increased.. a part of me wanted the e60 to crawl back up top but sadly it did not happen. i counted a full second between the 2 cars at the end. A full second is decent gap at those speeds. I could still hear the s85 v10..no mistake in that sound.
Hammond did club the active sound but thought nothing of it after driving f10 as i suspected. Interesting Hammond liked the car as a well rounded car you can ride with the family and track couple hrs later and i think that is what M cars or at least the M5 is about. Both cars are great cars. I am just glad i can afford to continue to own such great cars. E39 and E60 and next in line is F10. I suspect this is a first of many top gear reviews of f10.
"Every man's heart one day beats its final beat. His lungs breathe their final breath. And if what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse through the body of others and makes them bleed deeper in something that's larger than life, then his essence, his spirit, will be immortalized by the storytellers -- by the loyalty, by the memory of those who honor him, and make the running the man did live forever" (J.Hellwig)
