V10 power

http://carfreaks.net/video/cf-m6-e63...leife-xvid.avi
0-170mph in V10 M5 (all 7 gears) http://bimmers.baddreams.org/BMW_e60M5_0-270.wmv
Those are 285s breaking out btw.

Looks like they are almost done with this thing.

The engine block is built in the same factory their P83 Formula 1 engine is built, pretty obvious based on the sound of it.

For those of you who don't know about the new M5/M6;
-507hp 5.0L, aluminum, bi-vanos, V10 w/ individual electronic throttles
-tubular equal-length steel exhaust manifold to dual steel exhaust to quad tips
-ionic current technology in ECU, spark plugs detect knock/misfire/combustion issues
-7 speed close-ratio SMG (computer controlled MANUAL)
-variable torque-sensing differential lock
-high performance brakes based on 7 series - 62-0mph in 36 meters



variable valve timing..

Thats Beautiful!!

You can def tell F1 has had an impression on BMW lately. The gearbox and the way the computer controls the engine functions are def derived from F1 expirience.

Automobile magazine has an excellent writeup about it in the Nov04 issue.

P.S.: for anyone reading this that didnt know... SMG = Sequential Manual Gearbox.

My dad is getting one. He's already on the list. I cant wait. 507 hp. I heard from a current M5 owner (my friend's dad) that Dinan will be able to tune the new car to 600 hp. His car is rated at 470 hp from 390 with his Dinan modifications, and he hasn't done evrything to it. That car is already fast as crap. Im drooling just thinking about it.
