noone believed that a 400 hp m5 will accellerate faster than a 500 hp m5.

Did you try to accellerate at same rpm on both cars without shifting?
for example 130km/h at 3500 1/min?

I wonder who would win :confused3

Wow, it humiliated the E39. And it should, so good work BMW! How about a race through a corner, like an off ramp etc to show off the difference in handling?
:cheers:

That's very similar to how badly my S/C M3 beats a stock E39 M5. Looking forward to racing a E60 someday (or possibly owning one) :thumbsup:

That really is unbelievable! I agree with Jerry; the E39 M5 is a monster above 80 mph, and the E60 is pulling on it like it was a Corolla. I notice that the V10 was never shifting below 6,000 rpm. Does the car have any push below that in the rev range? :wroom:

Yes... You can go in 70 km/h in 7th gear in auto mode and it is a very ice behaving car. But it is more rev happy then the E39 M5 for sure.

Oh the noise is too good - I think I am going to go through tyres at the same rate as I eat pizzas (a lot) just to hear the sound :M5thumbs:
