So - these guys quibble about which is faster, which is justified. All things considered, they said pretty nice things about the M5. What is interesting to me is nobody really mentioned that one is a two-door sports car - the best America has to offer - and the other is a 4-door luxury sedan.
Even if the vette wins by far, a suzuki 1200 bike would trash us both.
It´s a matter of being "very confortable" fast. Of having a "dual mode" cruiser-or-race car. It´s its dual mode feature that makes the M5 unique.
you are right they do say flattering things about M5, that means they are not absolutely ignorant...what i would do is get a new M3 and strip it down a bit to make it light...and then race the vette and we'll see then what happens...
why wouldnt they compare M5 to something more similar, like STS or whatever?
and compare vette to porsche?
i just really dont get it...
