Car and Driver shares their comparison pitting the F10 M5 versus the F13 M6 at the Anglesey Circuit in the UK to see if the M6 is truly better at the track than the M5, as advertised.

Motortrend gets its hand on the F10 M5 for an in depth evaluation and performance testing. They achieved an impressive 3.7sec 0-60mph and 11.9sec quarter mile (@ 120.3mph).
Along the way they call the F10 M5 probably the best M5 ever, from driver feedback to all-out performance. We see their complaint about the large gap between comfort and sport mode as a positive as it means that the new M5’s range and effectiveness while wearing its many hats is better than ever.
