these are the best looking shots of it so far, IMO.

Hey, it is the only four door sedan with ~500hp AND and MT.

Looks better with the more agressive rubber and bigger wheels. The wheel design looks interesting too.

That looks awful. I don't care how much HP it has. To drop that kind of change, it better look at least halfway decent. Instead, it looks cartoonish and comical.

I'll truly rather turbo an E39 M5 than drive that fugly thing.

Have you ever driven an E39 M5?

It has a lot of flaws that should be corrected with the new version. It still doesn't change the fact that this will by the ONLY MT supersedan. Not to mention that the E60 is supposed to be lighter and a bit larger...

"We Build Excitement....That you Want to Drive. PONTIAC!"

sorry.

i'm sure the car will look (gulp) okay. eventually.

since we don't know anything about its performance, we can look on with fear and trepidation at these spy photos.

1 less trip to Starbucks a day should save you about $2.50. 30,000 days later (82 yrs), and I think you'll have reached your goal. :D

(I still think it looks like ass :eek: )

It's more like 1 less trip to Atlantic City every month and less Clubbing and Bar hopping every weekend will get me that car in 2 yrs time:D:bigpimp:

I'm with Alan AND Bobby on this one. I haven't cared for the E60 in pictures or the one I have seen in person, but the M5 version, with the beefy wheels/tires really sets it off. :thumbup:

Is it just me, or does that look like an intercooler in the opening beneath the plates?
