What’s the most exciting part of driving a BMW E60 M5? Probably top speeding it on the German autobahn. I remind you that in Germany, some public parts of the highways are speed unrestricted.
The car in the video holds an ECU update to remove the factory limiter which sets the car to a max 250km/h. Unrestricted it can go fully stock to a max 330km/h. With G-power tuning update, the mighty V10 powered saloon car can reach an whopping 380km/h.
Video also constains race against a Chevrolet Z06.
A short drag race from 0 to 170km/h(~110mph) between a V8 powered Porsche Cayenne S AWD vs the lighter, but with also less power BMW E60 535d twin turbo diesel.
Despite the massive weight, the Cayenne goes faster in the first seconds because of the all-wheel-drive traction which helps to launch on the slippery road.
