Interesting rendition. I'm sure it'll be faster than the current E60 M5 for 0-60, 0-100 and 1/4 mile possibly, but the top speed unlimited is a bit lacking. I like the current M5's top unlimited...

It doesn't sound like the current M5/M6 V10. Perhaps a different exhaust system on a V8 and higher redline?

The idea of blasting along at 100+ on the Autobahn is somewhat overrated. Once you get used to 120-130mph, the only benefit is getting somewhere quicker. It's still a nice experience to try at...

We used Continental FF miles to take our ED trip, but we sure made up for the flight savings with the $6.50/gal gas we used over 3100 miles @ ~10mpg! Find a card/airline you can combine. Definitely...

The factory is not where you pick up your vehicle. The delivery center is in Munich and the factory is about 1 hour away in Dingolfing. Just FYI for those that might not know.

We put 3100 miles on ours in 12 days of driving...258 miles/day. Of course we had to at least get past the 1200 mile break-in period. Almost 9k miles though is quite a bit of touring.
