Car versus superbike videos are more an exercise in entertainment rather than an actual or technical review/comparison, but they are nonetheless fun!

So for fun, Autoexpress has put the 2012 M5 against the superbike wearing the same badge – the BMW S1000 RR, in a showdown of BMW’s fastest factory car against its fastest motorcycle. The 200hp vs 560hp battle takes place on the Cadwell Park Circuit in the UK.

On paper, the results seem to be a foregone conclusion when pitting a superbike capable of 0-60 in … CONTINUED

This is my own first personal experience watching a review by Totalcar, but I have to say I loved it. The location, video footage and general hoonery is very Top Gear like. The presenter really hits on all the important themes and answered alot of my own questions about the M5 while having fun at the same time. By the end of the video, you can tell this car has really grown on the presenter and I think that says it all

Buried in the monstrous new press release on the new F10 M5, we noticed an interesting new feature called “Active Sound Design.”

Behind this marketing term is a fairly simple idea. The new M5 reproduces the car’s engine sound via the in-car audio system. In other word, if you’re sitting inside the car you not only hear the engine but also an audio track of the engine based on throttle input, speed, and engine rev. As BMW puts it, this makes for better feedback as you hear … CONTINUED

Here’s the very first look at a production Imperial Blue Metallic F10 M5 (although it could also possibly be Azurite Black Individual which is also a dark blue/black color). Imperial Blue Metallic has a beautiful metallic blue hue to it when illuminated and is the darker of the F10 M5 colors. This particular 2012 M5 joined ///M Flight, an M owner’s club in Germany, this past weekend. Club members were given rides in the new monster 560hp M5 and got up to 187mph … CONTINUED
