    F10 M5 Ascari track+Sevilla Spain experience

    Well I finally made it back in 1 piece!


    1st off I would have to say BMW M Division out did themselves with the entire set up of this event. Everything went smooth and the HOTEL OMG it was nothing I would think of to say anything bad about it.


    OK so how did the F10 M5 feel!? coming from a person who has a M3 with around 750HP I was expecting a lot from the car.


    and boy the car really moves! for such a large mass.
    the straight line performance is great very very powerful and torquey from 1500rpm and linear all the way to 7200rpm
    the M division did to their best to minimize the turbo lag....and they have done it. its the only car that I have ever driven that gives such a direct response and no power drop points unlike most turbo cars.


    now the M-DCT only comes in 3 shift speeds because BMW wanted to make things simple.


    the M5 stereo makes my M3 Logic7 feels like it was from a tech. from the 80's


    but on the track the car does feel a lot heavier on the steering. noted the fact the car is 300kgs heavier then the M3. the car is more challenging to handle because the car does come with 680Nm of torque so the you will get a head lift on the car so if your going up hill into a ''S'' turn there will be more weight shifted to the back of the car.


    so if the F10 M5 best in its class?!


    Yes and yes and yes

    um wow
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    I don't know if it was for prospective buyers or not but the spots where limited. I think only 1300 people total around the world.

    That was awesome Eugene!

    I thought about doing it as well, probably should have.

    So you were really impressed with the M5?
