On this episode of Head 2 Head, Motor Trend’s Jonny Lieberman pits the 2013 BMW M5 against the 2013 Porsche Panamera GTS in an epic super sedan showdown. The battle begins in California’s Mojave desert with a classic quarter-mile drag race. Then Jonny takes both V-8 powered sports saloons up to Big Bear, California to find out which one carves up the winding mountain roads the best.

The 2013 F10 M5 with its 4.4L V8 S63Tu turbo engine has previously been shown to be underrated from the factory, which is BMW’s habit with its official quote power figures.

The latest results showing this come from iND who have just begun performance testing on their F10 M5. The result was 527 RWHP (rear wheel horsepower) on a totally stock F10 M5 running on pump gas and dyno’d on a dynojet. This represents just a 6% drivetrain loss.

The M5′s S63tu V8 runs a higher compression at 10.0:1 (@ 22 PSI), compared to the X5M/X6M S63 engine’s 9.3:1 (@ 17 PSI).

In case you missed it in the large photo set from our first F10 M5 european delivery day thread, here are the first looks at a one-off F10 M5 Polizei car by BMW.

Based on the US spec F10 M5, this M5 police car is a show car only and not intended for actual police use. It will be on display at the Welt until Thursday.

BMW does make several models available for the police (including 3 series, 5 series and X5), as well as security vehicles.

Saturday, September 1 marked the first BMW european delivery date for the 2013 M5 (F10) and it was an epic one. We can’t recall another more anticipated european delivery date for a single model than this.

24 F10 M5s were delivered on Saturday – 22 of them to M5POST members (list), totaling 13,000+ horsepowers And that’s just in one day! The rest of the week and beyond will see more and more lucky owners meeting their new M5s for the first time.

We were on hand to greet and celebrate the occasion with our members. We were there for all 24 deliveries, and are happy to share with you photos covering many of them. Congrats once again to all!

Our thanks go to BMW Welt and M-Power.com for coordinating … CONTINUED
