Some have been delivered in Sweden, Swizerland and Germany and other european countries just that we know of...so I guess there should be some in the UK too.

Must be a BMW GB car - no other cars have been supplied. Dealer demo cars have been built and are currently sat awaiting shipping but dealers are not allowed to register the cars before the UK launch of May 19th.

I thought SL55 would burn DB9 no problem.

I have driven the DB9 a couple of times, courtesy of NigelM5. I also owned an SL 55. I can tell you with a certain degree of confidence that they are in different leagues. DB9 is no match for SL 55 beyond 70 mph

The AMDB9 is not as fast as it should be ,performance is near identical to M3.
I think you should compare it more to an AM Vanquish S ? Also price range I guess?

Mr brother saw a M5 coming back from Heathrow today - I said it coulden't have been but he was adamant it was the new M5 with side air vents, 19inch alloys, four tail pipes with the M5 badge and 05 plate.

I think these are demo cars assigned to dealers and their taking them out for a spin before the offical launch date.....not sure what else I can make of it...?

Could be - but they are not supposed to be driving them pre-launch. Also could be a BMW UK car as the BMW HQ is in Bracknell and that' s only 10 miles down the road from Heathrow
