F10 M5 on Top Gear

If you're wondering why their is an Audi in the way for the intro shots, you have to watch the previous episode. Audi's latest marketing has been putting cars in famous location and obstructing views. In true Top Gear style this is how they poke fun at Audi.

That's what I was thinking


Looks like BMW nailed it again. This is good news for the new m3 :4ngie:

I never had a doubt that the new M5 would be an awesome, awesome car. It's too bad that my budget stops at a fully loaded M3. :(

The exhaust in the stereo thing is kinda gay, but other than that, that is an amazing car,,,wish i could afford one

You'll get no sympathy from me with a statement like that. :rolleyes:

Agreed.

Why didn't they re-test the M5 on the Top Gear test track (in good conditions) and air it? :wtf:!?

Haha, okay. I suppose my monitor didn't clearly reflect the sarcasm font at 3am last night.

Mah bad. :hi:,

As good as that transmission may be, I still wish they offered it with a proper manual.

They do offer it with a "proper manual".

NyC35AV 03-20-2012 07:10 PM

Didn't know that. I'm pretty sure on the e60 it wasn't offered until about a few years after the release and it was more like an after though. Thought it was the same deal here.

bigjae1976 03-21-2012 08:34 AM

BMW has clearly stated that the F10 will come to the US with a 6MT

With that said...has anyone seen the chinese car review with Attack Stig? That was hilarious!

In the E60 M5 the 6 speed was a bit of an after thought. The F10 M5 has been developed with both the DTC and the 6 speed in mind. No after thought this time around. That is direct from the BMW M Brand Manager Matt Russel when I interviewed him at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show.
