Re: Short E60 M5 video clip fron Autoweek

Does that clip confirm a pretty disappointing torque figure, then? :sad1:
It mentions 370lb-ft which is not disappointing to me. In fact, the most important torque figure to me is not engine torque but torque to the rear wheels - the torque that makes you go faster - and the name for this torque figure is "horsepower."

I frankly like the power curve on my M3. While I expect the E60 M5 to have a good bit more at the lower end, the M3 is just plain fun to drive when you wind it out. Tractor-level grunt has never pleased me like a free-revving race-bred performance engine.
