7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
Discussion of BMW's 4th generation E65/E66 7 Series flagship. The E65 generated much controversy, due to its radical styling and iDrive user difficulties. Nonetheless, the E65 broke records to become the best-selling 7-series iteration ever, especially after its 2005 facelift.

WOW! I knew the new M5's were quick but not THAT quick.

Do you think it might have been set-up though? Because it seems they are trying to advertise the RPi exhausts and the winning M5 conveniently has one installed

Wait on second thought, that looks like a 2008 Superleggera, not a newer one. In that case, both the cars run the quarter mile in the high 11's so it is feasible that the M5 is actually faster

The new M5 is rediculously fast! Here is the thread on M5board where the owner posted that video.
