360 stradale 11.1 s
996 turbo 10.4 s
996 GT3 (2003) 10.2 s

That is INCREDIBLY impressive. Looks like M really worked on the mid range torque of the engine. Its faster than the freakin Murcielago!!!

This seams almost too good to be true lovelove
I think it is. Maybe the math was done wrong? In an earlier thread that published a German magazine's test resultshttp://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/attachment.php?attachmentid=2495 , they showed 0-100kph at 4.4 sec and 0-200 at 13.9 sec. Doing the math on this run, it looks like the 100-200 figure is more like 9.5 seconds...still incredibly fast however. :M5thumbs:

The engine torque peaks at 6100 rpm - not what most people would call midrange. The incredible 100-200 kph times are really because of the gearing and the ability of the engine to achieve high rev's without losing a lot of torque.

I'd guess you're not getting incredible 0-100 times mainly because of traction, and somewhat because you're starting out well below the torque peak. Stickier tires could probably shave .5 sec's off the times.

Once underway, the 7 speed gearing keeps the minimum engine speed close to the torque peak. That's the formula for quick acelleration once underway. The lightning gearshifts are another big factor. The times are just amazing.

As far as I can see we have 3 test and 3 different results.
If one use AMS test result the 100-200 sprint is 10.1 sec.
the Autocar test gives 8,8 sec ( 13,5 and 4.7)

Anyway it is fast as hell.

The m5 has 85% of it's max torque available from 3000 rpm on, it is a very flexible motor.

As a comparison, does anyone now where the E39 M5 would be on that list?

Wait a minute. Maybe I've done the wrong calculations. But the German video tests (M5 versus CLS55) showed the following:

0-100km/h: 4.7 secs (as claimed)
0-200km/h: 14.8 secs

If I'm not wrong, don't you simply take the difference to get the 100km/h to 200km/h? That gives 14.8 minus 4.7 equals 10.1 secs? Big difference with the 8.8 posted above.

Is nowack really going to be able to get that kind of power out of the motor? Do they even have an m5 to work with yet?
Dont know, this is what I ve heard...



About the times. They differ alot between sources. Luckily all those numbers are from SportAuto(?) so they should be comparable.
