Good episode!

The F10 is something else though, pretty much smoked the E60 off the line and away it went lol They all agreed after the end of the clip the car is epic just like the previous versions.

3-4 car gap or eternity? Did E60 claw it's way back after high speeds?
Look on streetfire, should be up by tonight!

Outside of UK, BBC iplayer only works with a UK based proxy. And iTunes has about 9 days delay.

Since it will probably be deleted shortly, a few quotes:

"As an allrounder, it's currently the best car in the world."
"Meet the new boss."

Also, regarding the lap time, Jeremy Clarkson said that it wasn't just wet, "it was pouring with rain - a meaningless time". That's why they didn't even put it on the board.

I'm a bit disappointed about the review. It was like 5 or 6 minutes long. The E60 review was twice that. I was hoping for something a bit more in depth.

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

Sold Sept '16. It was an amazing 7 years.

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 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)
