We have just had one stop by at RUF, and myself and our main testdriver took the car out.

Initial impressions are good.

SMG is superb, engine sound is great, except for idle, which is too muted imho. The car was Interlagos Blue, which i didnt like, but it still looked great.

Its very fast, above 200kmh it really pushes hard, i believe 300kmh is reachable, 330....perhaps.

Handling is superb. I think it has really moved the game on from the e39.

Should have been at RUF this week instead of last. :D

Got a ride in the Maserati Quattroporte instead :rolleyes:

I really would like to see the RUF R Turbo vs. the M5 in a 0 - 300 km/h race, to see the difference.

Funny you should mention that, someone posted this yesterday:

There is also a Carrera GT, SLR, Gallardo and DB9 here.

This is for Maxim magazine in the states,

all the best

We have just come back from testing it on the autobahn against...the GALLARDO and i can say comprehensively 100% that the new M5 is faster than the lambo.

We went from 80km/h to 270km/h, and though the lambo got the jump the m5 was slowly catching it. I have no doubts in my mind that we would have overhauled it if we didnt have the limiter...

I have it on video too, so will post it asap.

I really think we could have overhauled it! Seriously, it was amazing, i thought the gallardo might have been on part throttle, but this was not so.

Without limiter the M5 runs 330 km/h+, the Lamborghini "only" runs 309 km/h. So.. :M5launch:
That's like saying the RS6 Plus is faster than the stock M5... 280 vs. 250 km/h. Which I wouldn't say...

Tuned vs. stock IMO.

Sorry if I sound negative, I'm not. Looking forward to the video. :byee55amg
