The M5's have been fantastic cars for a long time now, and this one is no different. I'd have one in a heartbeat! Simply can't argue with the grunt and presence of the thing.
Interesting point that Richo makes, and one that I have been harping on about since the BA GT was released and tested. The previous model M5 was a pretty good match for the GT in terms of weight and power, and it never ceased to amaze me at how much quicker the M5 was!
The new M5's engine is a real work of art, a serious bit of gear whatever way you look at it. 240kg, 373kW @7750rpm, 520Nm @ 6100rpm.
Autospeed has a pretty good summary page of the car HERE
