    No surprise the M3 pulled through on the top but that is a very fast SUV. For that amount of weight and having such a wide front area it pulls hard.

    A bolt on car with a tune would take it pretty easily though. Would like to see what a tuned X5 M could do as well.

    Imagine the next M5 with the rumored S63. Over 1000 less lbs, better aero and ease of increasing the power.

    Beastly!

    Oh, I am. I'm also imagining the next M6 which hopefully will be even lighter than the M5 with the same motor.
