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.

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.

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

Agreed.

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

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

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.

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.
