I have know doubt that the new M5 will be a v-10. I also believe it will be available much sooner than the past history of M5 release dates VS. the new 5 series releases. The marketplace has changed so much since '99, when the current generation of
M5 was released!! If you remember, even before the M5, BMW was still the producer of the best, fastest, baddest 4-door vehicle in the world with the 540i. Now, with Mercedes upping the ante so much, in such a short period of time, BMW has to get the new M5/M6 to market much quicker than ever before!! Each month that goes by without one, only sends prospective buyers who may prefer Bimmers, over to rival Mercedes.....
Yes, I am a firm believer in competition, as the consumer always comes out on top--so Mercedes can keep upping the ante, which will only force BMW to come up with something that much better than them!!!
Thre is much more competition and sense of urgency for BMW to contend with, and I can assure you they won't let us down....Mark it on the calendar...The M5 will be out much sooner than we have come to expect from BMW, and to beat the Benzes, it will have to have a v-10....
