M5 at the Nürburgring

I was racing the GP Nürburgring with BMW (M3 perfection training) this tuesday to thursday. I had chances to see the new M5 many times. There were two of them one silver/gray and one black. I liked the black one more. The sound was civilized yet powerfull. Listening at the road, they could be barely audible to amazing when passing at the Döttinger Höhe. Still I like the V8 more. Unfortunately my camera wasn't ready at that time and it was raining so I wasn't patient enough to catch the car again.

One of the M5 was at a nearby gas station. When the guy saw us approaching he managed to disappear.

I also had a glance into one of the new 3er. It had the same cockpit lines as the 5er!!! unlike the X3. Sad...

I also saw new Merc CLS AMG, M class, new Porsche 911, new Boxster, V8 Cadillacs, even one with compressor and many others. Italian testers crashed a Murcielago.

Here's a short movie of one nice Merc at the Döttinger Höhe:
