F10 M5 runs neck and neck with c6 zo6 vette

Pretty damn impressive considering the m5 weighs a thousand pounds more with only an additional 50 hp.

Actually is kind of impressive. If the seats in the Z06 didn't have such crappy seats, it'd be an upper deck shot instead of a line drive homer that just cleared the wall. Sorry, I'm watching the Yankees game...

Sorry, it's just a variable that makes these comparisons difficult. Who knows how well or at which rpm the z06 driver is shifting at. I'm sure I could look up trap speeds for both cars, if they are close, yes it is impressive, but then again is it really that impressive. I would have to imagine that for performance luxury the panamera is the bench mark, I'm sure the M5 is good, it just needs to be raced against it's peers.

I agree...our m3s prob wouldn't be able to keep up with a next gen performance car. The z06 did then again it's much lighter and a sports car vs a sedan, so it shouldn't lose.

Plastic fantastic

You can see the guy in the Z06 starts in the wrong gear. You can also see it pulling back what the guy loses on the shifts while its in gear.

Yes the M5 is quick, NO it is not Z06 quick.

I'm with ya. I don't even like Vette's, but their performance can't be denied.

I've been in the E60 M5 a few times, and been thoroughly impressed. To see the F10 stomp it is kinda mind blowing.

The new M5 is nowhere near Z06 quick. Bottom line.

I just think it's pretty amazing that an NA car developed in the early 2000's that cost 70k new is keeping up with a fresh off the line, twin turbocharged 110k+ car, sedan or not. I'm not taking away anything or giving anything to either car, Z06's and anything that can stay close to it are stupid fast, I am just impressed with the Vette.

Had the opposite feeling to the e60 as you lol, wasn't impressed at all. My old stock STi ran door to door with it up to 60 (Trust me, I know what would happen after that). But this new M5 seems to be extremely impressive number wise, which is why I think it's so cool the z06 is still probably the faster car.

It's trapped 123 on the factor tires, it's in the same damn neighborhood actually.

However, this guy in the video cannot shift better than average
