His point is that the F10 M5 is different from previous ones in that it is now turbo, it is 2 cars in one, and that BMW has not lost it
The M5 was never a thinly disguised race car. My father shopped for and almost bought an E38 535, but it was too expensive at the time, and he hated the 528 for being slow (sound familliar?). He ended up with an Audi 5000S Turbo but I digress....

The dealer at the time, Wide World of cars, had an M5 there. I sat in it and was given a ride in it. At no time did I think "race car". It was more luxurious than even a loaded 535!

Heaven is where the police are British, the cooks are French, the cars are German, the lovers are Italian and it is all organised by the Swiss.
