    Actually, BMW is currently testing a new 500 hp V-10 for their upcoming M5. The 5 series is due for an update to keep the new 3-series and 7-series style, so BMW want a fresh start for their beloved midsize M. Also a possibility is a new 6-series. If they go that route, an M6 is promised. Remember that the original M6 was the first M-badged "normal" street car (M1 doesn't count, that was a damn race car!) They aren't sure they will use the V-10, but rumor also has it that the German engineers also are considering twin-turbocharging the V-10 (if that is true than the V-10 will be small--ie. a space saver). I'll keep you posted when I hear more.<!-- Signature -->

    If I am in this forum, I'd rather look at comments about BMW's. Not about some corvette vs. XXX shit...<!-- Signature -->

  8. Re: is that 440hp V8 gunna b in the next M5?

    Wakku, 191.78 to be exact, but just to make a hard thing easy, let's try this crazy, new-fangled contraption that all the scientists are talking about called "rounding"...
     
  9. Re: pretty quick

    you know what makes it tough to own a viper? the insurance
    add 200+ horsies to it, and that insurance may very well be impossible to acquire
    and you forget, that gives dodge 3 years to bump up the ponies...

    america rules!
     
  11. Re: is that 440hp V8 gunna b in the next M5?

    I would like to see the 04 M5 against a viper.. the Viper will most likely have better 0-whatever acceleration, but it won't be a lot better, and the M5 will destroy it on the track. I'm not sure but I'm going to assume that the M5's v-10 won't be a 8.0L inefficient paperweight completely destroying all possibiity of balance <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    5lt V10 in the next M5!
     
  13. Re: is that 440hp V8 gunna b in the next M5?

    I heard the new 5ltr V10 M5 engine output will be close to 370kw to beat the E55 AMGs 350
     
  14. Re: is that 440hp V8 gunna b in the next M5?

    yea its gonna have to be just slightly more than Mercedes and Audi. I wonder how long Bmw, Mercedes and Audi are gonna be haveing this race for more horsepower because by 2010 we will be round the 1000hp mark.
     
  15. Re: is that 440hp V8 gunna b in the next M5?

    If you want more, go to g-power. They'll put a compressor on it... 600 bhp...

  17. Re: is that 440hp V8 gunna b in the next M5?

    Wuts M5? I thought it was M3. This is a sweet car though. It looks identical to the Z8, but the engine is beter and stronger.
     
  18. Re: is that 440hp V8 gunna b in the next M5?

    umm where exactly did you hear about this "720 hp" corvette?
    i know about the 500hp version they are testing but no 720
     
  19. Re: is that 440hp V8 gunna b in the next M5?

    What do Vettes and Vipers have to do with BMW's?
    Anyway. I would not expect BMW to supercharge, turbocharge, or compress any M engine. They have a long and true tradition of natural aspiration. Just like they have done in the past I could see them taking the new 5 Engine v-8 and torquing the hell out of it. I would still like BMW to make an M7. Now wouldnt that be interesting.. this aint no park avenue.

    Or maybe an MX5?
     
  20. Re: is that 440hp V8 gunna b in the next M5?

    There is an M5 for the 5-series and an M3 for the 3-series...
     
  21. They can't make a car called the MX5, because of copyright. If they made something like that, it would be either the X5 M or M 4x4.
