M5 slower than RS6+

tifosi said:
this was one of the first test of the E60 M5.

if i remanber correctly, the test condition was quite wet. and that's why RS6+ with quattro was able to out accelerate M5.
I agree, pretty bad numbers, but I doubt it's the wet track as the car is slower than we expected, even when compared to the RWD CTS-V.

Neck to neck with the CTS-V from 10km/h to 160km/h, but the M5 is definitely faster from 100-160km/h. I suppose a lot depends on the gearing. Perhaps the manual will do better?

Or perhaps the M5 was on P400 and/or the Continentals are to be blamed?

I always thought the RS6 plus would be slower than the E60 M5, only marginally faster than the E39 M5. Here the RS6 plus is decisively faster. May be the test driver was not familiar with the SMGIII or left it in S4 or something.
