Top Gear F10 M5 Episode will air March 11th. Races against Jet Plane

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
"Hammond reviews the BMW M5 F10, and an attempt to prove it is better than a jet plane, pits May in a jet plane to beat him in a lap of the track."

Sounds fun

Can't wait! Was wondering if they were going to review this season - didn't see any hints of a M5 review when they had the promo for this season.

OK, this is totally worth the wait. Though I wish Clarkson was doing the review.

Can't wait to see the review, should be interesting. Here is a shot from last nights episode after their commute to the office, looks like it was sitting in the production lot?

Maybe. The wheels look off. Also can't make out the quad pipes. But the colour is right, so is the black window surrounds.

True, the wheels seem off, but looks like you can just make out the edge of diffuser, I dont think any regular 5 is shaped like that. Also, that's been the stereotypical test color for demo M5s.

In Canada we only get one choice for rims for MY 2012. In europe and elsewhere they get a 2nd choice I believe as an option.

Yes, I believe they are. The look different from the standard 19s and 20s we have all seen. Maybe they are some kind of winter set up ?

Those are the base 19 wheels, same as those on the Top Gear car; not sure why people think they are different Some markets only get 20" wheels as that is what the Carbon Fiber Brake Option will require and will decrease the need to upsize/carry two wheels once that hits the market.

A jet, how meaningless. I would love to see that twin turbo V-8 in some kind of a sports car or sports coupe size package, significantly smaller than a 6 series. That would be awesome.

Hey guys, some people like to not know about what they are going to do on the show in advance, because it's more fun that way. Can you at least please put a spoiler alert warning before you drop stuff like this?

Top Gear isn't supposed to be meaningful, it's supposed to be funny automotive eye candy!! Love me some Top Gear. If you want legitimate M5 testing, wait for Fifth Gear.

Slash, the M5, and a 250 California! This should be good.
