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 2.9 seconds against a car which does the same in 4.4 seconds, but keep in mind that cars do have higher cornering speeds and can brake later on the track. See for yourself below.

There are some things you can’t get enough of, and seeing the new BMW F10 M5 in motion surely is among them. BMW UK has just released a new video showing a Black Sapphire Metallic F10 M5 playing in the countryside on some twisties. As an upscale executive sedan, black works really well on the new M5 and it will likely be one of the most popular colors.

The 2012 M5 will be available in Europe later this month, while US customers will have to wait until summer 2012 to get their hands on the first cars.

The F10 M5 is powered by the lethal BMW bi-turbo V8 S63Tu motor outputting 560hp and 501 lb-ft torque. The specs signal that new M5 is good for some fast top speed runs, but how fast? This video demonstrates how quickly the F10 M5 achieves 196 MPH (315 kmh) – in just under an impressive minute.

This model is obviously top speed unlimited as the regular top speed of the F10 M5 is 250kmh (155mph) and 305kmh (189mph) with M Drivers Package.

We’ve all seen plenty of photos of the new 2012 M5′s imposing biturbo V8 S63Tu engine, which produces a whopping 560hp. But what exactly are we seeing when we peek under the hood of the F10 M5? Here is an explanation of some of the components seen on the S63Tu engine, as well as how they work together.

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 exactly what the engine is doing. Another obvious benefit is that it allows to change the noise levels based on your driving behaviour as the reproduction by the audio system gets louder and more intense in Sport and Sport+ settings.… CONTINUED

Watch the first 2012 M5 (F10) publicly recorded high speed run, where the F10 M5 easily hits 300kmph (187mph) on the Autobahn. It’s a delight to see the speedometer climb so quickly, but also mad fun to hear the engine and exhaust noises as it rockets into the triple digit speeds. Video inside!
