Those Audi RS6/RS7/S8 and upcoming E63 AWD might post impressive 0-60, however, Front engine, “FWD based” AWD drive tran setup is fundamentally flawed in the term of Motorsport. High speed 60+mph acceleration will suffer for sure, base on similar HP the F10 M5 should able to fly by any of those AWD cars with ease on freeway. Same result most likely on road course and the F10 should able to pull hard when exiting corner. On top that, no sure how reliable the drive tran will be on those FWD based AWD after dozens of hard launch. There is good reason Nissan and Porsche spend so much resource to make sure GT-R and Panamera 4’s setup correctly with Front engine RWD based AWD system.
