    Wait a minute, did someone just say that a Ford Escort Cosworth is a better car than the M5?

    The Escort Cosworth that only does 0-60 in 5.8sec and can only hit 143mph?

    I can tell you are obviously uneducated and most likely read Max-Power or some other crap like that<!-- Signature -->

    wait a minute? Performance makes it the best sedan on the planet is that what your saying? Corsa make a 424kw 5.7 ltr V8 that's the quickest production sedan you can buy. Does that make it the best?

    Yeah it'd make it easily the best PERFORMANCE sedan around, but the M5 same with the E55 have added luxury and a better ride quality, they remove you from traffic and have no cabin noise, but neither is the best performance orintated sedan you can buy if thats what your mainly after.

    Are you blind??

    Look at his post again, He clearly says Escort Cosworth.

    And the only Sierra Cosworth's that ran high 4's were the 3 door R500 ones.<!-- Signature -->

    Sorry i don't live in the UK like you do mate. i don't pretend to know shit that i don't have a clue about. We don't get the cosworth's here in oz. But thats alright, the CSV's quicker than anything else. At least here in oz, we can say we manafacture the quickest production saloon
     
  14. Re: M5 - The Best Sports Saloon On The Planet

    that response almost sounds sarcastic. Its like the GTS-R supercharged HSV you get there only it makes 570+hp instead of 500. It is quite easily the fastest, its not like im bullshitting.
     
  15. Re: M5 - The Best Sports Saloon On The Planet

    its a supercharged veloce.

    thats alright buddy i really couldnt give a shit if you were being sarcastic its a faster car. You can be as sarcastic as you want, doesn't change the fact though does it.

    The M5 hits 60 in 4.6 not 4.8 heres the proof.<!-- Signature -->
     
  19. Re: M5 - The Best Sports Saloon On The Planet

    thats cool. Personally i think thats a little ambitious 4.6 for a car with a power to weight ratio of 6.10kw/kg was that time run on a slope?

    I normally see low 5s. The CSV's power to weight ratio of 424kw and 1700 kilos by comparision is roughly 4kw/kg. Physics determines it has to be quicker.
     
  20. Re: M5 - The Best Sports Saloon On The Planet

    Well, Autocar also got to 0-60 in 4.6 seconds in 1999.<!-- Signature -->

    MT's did 0-60 in 4.75. And ripped through the quarter mile at 13.07 with a 107.21 trap speed. C&D's did it in 4.7. The slowest US test was (as usual) R&T with 5.0 seconds.

    The M5 is the daddy among fast saloons, and the new one will take over the role.<!-- Signature -->
     
  25. Re: M5 - The Best Sports Saloon On The Planet

    Truely the baddest car on the planet in every category and generations. Nothing comes even close. Doubt if BMW can beat it with a better model in the future. Nothing to change on the current M5 ( maybe an in-dash CD player to go with the Navigation system would be nice)
