    2009 BMW M5 - Base

    Pros: 2nd, 3rd, throttle response, handling

    Cons: Electronic nanny intervenes too early

    Advice: Buy share in tyre companies to compensate for smile generation

    I have one of these beasts, and it is just that, staggering power, only a right foot away. First gear is only a prelude to the action, and mostly is burning rubber for 2-3 seconds, 2nd is great, pulls like a train, excellent for darting around town...3rd is the bad boy, and cranks to 115-120 faster than you can say 'jail'. After that it's moved into full on rocket ship. The throttle response is incredible, think it, and it's done. Brakes are huge, and will shock you how fast they can drop mph. Overall this is a barely disguised race car, will scare passengers senseless, and put a smile on your face. It really is a shocker from 20-100, and eats Tarmac like no tomorrow. Handling is supurb. Not for the timid. Buy one, and you will not regret it.
