When will someone explain to you americans that once you get to 600HP in a car that costs only £70k you are looking at a death machine?
Do you know why the Bugatti Veyron costs 1.2m euros? because it takes this much money to make 1000hp Safe to drive!
Not to mention the fact that this M5 gets 29MPG! WTF a M car that does near 30MPG??? But no you moan about 20-30hp when its already putting out 560hp! This is like complaining that your Gold bullion is only 999.99 pure!
MOAR BHP is not the aim of todays car makers.
