5-60 6.0 sec
70-0 167ft
Gees .84
EPA 14/19 (today's tests)
Gas Guzzler Tax $1,300
And in some cases, even the F10 535 is faster, per C&D:

C&D Test Results
2011 535i (Auto)
0-60 5.7 sec
0-100 14.1 sec
1/4mi 14.1@100mph
5-60 6.5 sec
70-0 168ft
EPA 19/29

No doubt, the 550 is a beast and really does not compare to the E39 540 one bit.
