Thumbs down V10 confirmed

Had a chat with my dealer. A very serious guy. He confirmed that the E60 will come with a V10. No comments so far on the power.

Well V8 or 10 or 12 As long as it's not supercharged and still leaves AMG behind especially when it comes to handling and sport feeling.

My view on this is that I trust BMW M to win the day again. Be patient, don't go over to AMG just because it's new and temporarily faster, you may regret it when the BEAST makes a comeback !

For anybody who declares soup cans to be works of art or suggests closing a whole department store
and keeping it as a museum, considering a car as a rolling work of art is more typical than unusual.
