Very nice! :thumbsup:

The M5 looks like Blue Onyx - can you confirm this?

Nice pic, but the V10 of M5/M6 has nothing to do with the F1 V10.


Thats only a marketing gag.

Hmmm...it's not made by BMW, it's NOT a V config...it NOT 10 cylinders...

or did you think that any of the WRC cars are really just modified street cars?

or that the Audis that race in the LeMans series share any components with an A6?

:confused:

I know that.
But a lot of people believe the statements of BMW that the M5/M6 engine is a near relative of the F1 engine.

But it has some similarities - V10, high revving...
Well, its all about the marketing, if the people believe they got F1 inspired engine under the hood, they will buy it for that F1 spirit.

BTW, have you got more informations about "BMW statements". Maybe we should know how it is in reality :D
Cheers
