This morning’s Nordschleife Touristenfahrten session was closed today – because of the M5 Ring-Taxi crashed on Nürburgring track – with paying customers aboard! Luckily no one was hurt except for the driver’s ego. At first(early reports said) it was thought the crash was caused due to the driver drifting in the Brunchen-II turn. Turns out the driver of the Ring Taxi was just driving way over his head and the “red mist” got the better of his judgment. He really ought to have yielded … CONTINUED

On this episode of Head 2 Head Jonny Lieberman is joined by Mike Shaffer and two extremely potent hyper sedans, the 2014 BMW M5 Competition and the 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S Model. Between the two of them, these two mighty Germans produce 1152horsepower and 1092 pound-feet of torque. On paper.

Epic European Delivery report journal by BIMMERPOST member B-1 Pilot:
Just four days ago, we returned from an Epic European Delivery trip of my 2014 M5. In 10 days of travelling we visited 8 countries, drove 1800 miles, hit 162MPH, drove three laps around the Nürburgring, took 1200 pictures, shot 15 hours of video, and consumed copious amounts of good German beer and wine.
For my trip, I blended previous experiences, new knowledge learned here, and about 6 months of research to come up with our … CONTINUED
This week on Ignition, Carlos Lago tests the BMW M5… again! This time around it has something called the Competition Package, which adds a host of small adjustments and improvements in an effort to improve the car’s performance and the satisfaction it gives to its driver. Is more power and a recalibration of the suspension and steering enough to make this incredible sedan behave? We find out on the test track at Hyundai’s Proving Grounds.
