CNET, the all-things-tech focused website reviews the 2013 BMW M5 (F10), with a focus on what else – its technology.
The all new 2012 BMW M5 (F10) Top Gear episode has just aired. We won’t play spoiler, but BMW and M5 fans will be pleased. It’s reviewed by Richard Hammond and pitted against the predecessor E60 M5 as well. Check out the video and review inside.
The 2012 BMW M5 F10 finally gets its time on Top Gear tomorrow, March 11 on BBC UK. Richard Hammond will be the reviewer and in an attempt to prove it is better than a jet plane, pits May in a jet plane to beat him in a lap of the track. UK members set your TV recorders, and everyone else, look for clips online soon after the episode airs at 8PM UK time. Small preview inside.
Well respected automotive reviewer Chris Harris drives the F10 M5 and the Nissan GT-R. He admits that the two are not really rival cars, but what’s important is that the two are both great cars he enjoyed immensely (just look at his reaction), and in which he appreciated every mile and every minute.
German magazine Autozeitung has pitted the new BMW M5 (F10) against its bigger cousin. The F10 M5 is powered the S63Tu, an improved version of the BMW X6M’s S63 engine. Given the S63Tu’s enhancements over the S63 and the F10 M5′s lighter weight, the M5 winning in all categories and placing in 1st is certainly not surprising.
What is interesting however is to see more real world F10 M5 performance test results.
They were able to get the F10 M5 from 0-100km/h (62mph) in 4.2 seconds and from 0-200km/h (124mph) in just 11.7 seconds, which is wicked fast.
The rest of the data, despite being in German, is pretty self explanatory and easy to tell, so have a look below.
This must have felt like Christmas for the folks at Autobild. Autobild knows what it takes to have a great story and has done a special edition on BMW M models, called “Fascination M.” In this special comparo, Autobild gives an overview of all current BMW M models as well as interesting insights into M GmbH. Most interestingly, Autobild pitted all (yes, all) currently available M models against each other on a German race track named Sachsenring.
The outcome? As you’d expect, the M3 CRT (it’s sold out but more info here) is the fastest M car Autobild has ever tested on Sachsenring as it clocked a 1:38.87 minute laptime (the M3 GTS isn’t available no more). An amazing second place goes to the brand-new F10 M5 … CONTINUED
