That looked so incredible!! It seemed like the M5 was by far the fastest, but I think the M3 may have been better at taking it turns, and handling. I was curious to why the guy in the red was driving with two feet, even though he had an SMG??? Oh well still great to watch. And im curious if they let the GT-R win at the end, even though it was losing the whole race.

MB in general has lost it's luster for me... well except the AMG models. The M5 is by far the most amazing vehicle out there - within my grasp of course. Now the M6... hmmmm

Left foot braking is commonly used in karts.

And Best Motoring always test European cars!

I sometimes brake with my left foot even though I drive an auto. If you know how to control it, you can react quicker than with your right foot.

I like BMW, but that CLS is about twice as good looking as the M5. Thats one of the most beautiful cars i've seen, I love the long elegant lines and the rear of it. Gorgeous. Its so much better to the point that the performance aspect doesn't even come into the equation.

Maybe so, but they don't know what they are doing on the slalom. They look like rookies going thru cones, other than being able to save the car when they get into terrible shape.

They do know what they are doing on the track though.

Great video though, I only wish I could understand it! Thanks for posting.
