    • How much faster is the new F10 M5 than the previous generation E60 M5? Take a look, F10 versus E60

      Obviously the newer car is going to be faster but the question is by just how much? The 1/4 mile times we have seen from testing thus far put the new M5 about 6-7 miles per hour ahead in trap speed translating to roughly 70 more horsepower at the wheels for the F10. The new M5 is much heavier but it also has a dual clutch transmission to help make up for it. The video here shows a roll on race where the new F10 M5 simply demolishes the E60 M5. The difference looks absurdly large in these videos, would be nice to have some timing equipment numbers to go with them to shed some more light.

        DynoMaha numbers read diffrent numbers than a dynojet. I have not seen a dynomaha pick-up 700HP on any tuned M157 yet. have you?
        I think you are correct that the m157 will put out more power tuned than the s63.

        A little off topic. But I just saw the F10 M5 has a gas guzzler tax. Now why did they go to turbos again?

        CLS63 and E63 do not have a gas guzzler tax.

        Very interesting point, why would the m157 not have it?

        You are basing this on what exactly?

        He's basing it on his personal experience.
