BMW is always conservative

BMW advertised 5.2 0-60 for the E39 M5 and when magazines tested it the times were often below 5 seconds. Same with the new 750 and X6 5.0. Both have tested below 5 seconds 0-60. So if the X6 at 5000 lbs. clocks 4.9 to 60, then the new F10 twin turbo V8 5 series should be in the mid 4s. And if they offer the dual clutch maybe even better

The only question is when will it arrive!!
