That's a very optimistic trap speed....
I expect about 118-119 mph.

trap speed is indication of hp and gearing. mostly.

with that in mind- an srt-10 viper with 500hp and tall-ish gears traps 123-125... and we already know that the e60 m5 at speeds is faster than the srt-10... so i might be not that far off ;)

Any trapspeed over 120 mph would be incredible for a 4 door sedan. I'm expecting more like 118-119, but I'll be pleasantly surprised if some of the carmags get over 120. It should be close.

The viper has a way better 0-100 km/h time than the M5.. We need to get above 150 km/h before the M5 starts moving away

If the car traps at 119 than it should put it in the low, very low 12s. My E55 trapped 117 and hit 12.1. My buddy's hit 120 trap and ran 11.8 with 1.8 sixty time.

If the M5 can run 119 I would be VERY pleased and probably no need for upgrades.

I don't think this is going to happen alex. The best times I've seen in car magazine testing for the 0-200 kph run is in the low 13's. That means low 13 seconds to hit 124 mph. I just don't think this car is capable of hitting 124 in the mid-12's.
