auto bild test.....

i remember they tested once an sl 55 amg, with 12,8 secs to 200 kmh...

They funny sing on this test.

On the same track, Oeschersleben the m5 touring had 1:55 and the m5 limo was 7 sec quicker with 1:48, m6 1:46....

So is just real bullshit, specialy touring and limo were on the same tyres.

The conclusion is near that the driver didnt have a clue how to drive, and didnt use the launch controlle for 0-200.

In a swiss magazine they tested the touring with 14,6 sec up to 200 kmh.
And this mag is pretty serious...

Wow, interesting results. I'm sure the M5 wasn 't performing well that day and would expect it to be at least equal to the Alpina.

Nonetheless, there's no denying that the RS6 is a serious competitor and has some serious punch...
