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
Autocar UK places Steve Sutcliffe behind the wheel of the F10 M5 for some BMW hoonage. Sure, a 560hp/501lb-ft torque RWD monster can drift, but the question here is – how far will it drift?
No surprise to anyone, the answer is FAR! According to Sutcliffe, the fast steering system and monster torque make the F10 M5 a cinch to throw around, and it shows in this video.

Fifth Gear’s Web TV takes a spin and assesses the new BMW 640d coupe (F13) M Sport model. They have some limited gripes and come to the conclusion that if you’re looking for a sporty and refined 2+2 GT with astonishing fuel economy, it should be on the top of your list.
While US customers are still waiting for the new F10 M5 to hit showroom floors later next year, European tuners have begun to have access to and tinker with the 2013 M5. Germany based tuner PP Performance have posted the first independent dyno runs of the F10 M5.
This F10 M5 put down 444 BHP to the wheels on a MAHA LPS 3000 dyno. This translates to an estimated engine power of 573.7 BHP and 721 NM of torque.
Other tuners such as G-Power have already got their hands on and begun tuning on the F10 M5. And with tuners already achieving 750hp with the S63 motor from the X5M/X6M (such as the Manhart biturbo M3), expect the same 700+ hp mark from tuned F10 M5′s.
