Its funny you're quite right. When I worked at a BMW dealership in England (before my Canadian adventure), we ran a customer appreciation day at Goodwood and all vehicles in the model line up were there to drive, from an R56 Mini Cooper S to an M6.......

Tiff was running E60 M5 hot lap passenger rides (usually with 4 up) for the entire day. It was so hard on the car that 2 were used one before and one after lunch!!!!

For anyone who has driven at Goodwood, it has kind of a wide, slightly dogleg, straight (like a larger scale version of the kinked straight at the Mosport DDT track, when heading Clockwise) on which a quick car (M6) can see the healthy side of 145/146 mph, but Tiff in the M5 would just carry the speed into the following apex and we'd be looking out of the side windows at 135 mph!!
