BMW M5 – Bullet

No scantily clad women, no overtly gratuitous tire smoke – just a 560-horsepower super sedan doing its best impression of a bullet.

I just love the sound of the new BMW M5, they seriously built a scary machine and they brought it nicely together in this video. I think is my favorite color for the BMW M5.

2012 BMW M5

Ladies and Gentlemen the beast has been unveiled, so much talk about this machine and at last it has been shown to the masses. The next iteration of a very mean four door sedan. There is something that I find to be very attractive about the M5 from the original version until now and I love that BMW keeps making these aggressive machines, and I especially like it in this color, this blue is probably my favorite color.

The 2012 M5 is about more than mere surface beauty, after all. The sonorous V10 of the last M5 has been traded out for a twin-turbocharged V8 fist. Power is up, with 552 horsepower (the V10 produced 507 hp) coming on at 6,000 rpm – 1,750 rpm lower than the V10. Torque is hugely boosted from 383 pound-feet to 501 lb-ft, which will be great for shoving this car to 60 miles per hour in a reported 4.4 seconds. That’ll route to the rear wheels via a standard dual-clutch transmission, though a proper six-speed stick. The cost of entry is rumored to be around €100,000 in Germany, which is around 39,000 KWD which I’m assuming it will be close to in Kuwait.

M5 RingTaxi – The GreenHell

As any man who has an inkling to cars and driving fast I know of the Nuremberg Ring aka The GreenHell. One of the most sought after tracks in the world, every manufacturer tests their cars on that track to beat out other manufacturers. There was even that little shuffle between Porsche and Nissan, and Porsche threw a tantrum about a Japanese manufacturer beating them on their turf. I want to drive on the Nuremberg Ring and its simple to do it but I was think that I lack the skill to drive on it since a lot of professional drivers are on their at the same time, so its a no mercy situation, but their is a small solution and that would be the BMW M5 Ring Taxi. For €195 you can take a lap in a BMW sponsored M5 for the track with a professional driver. I would want to try it out to see what I could learn from the professional driver before taking my shot at it.

Some Interesting Facts about those M5 “Taxis”

  • Tires changed every 10 Laps
  • Brake Pads Changed every 20 Laps
  • Suspension Changed every 50 Laps
  • Cars Changed Annually

NOWAK BMW M5’s V10 to 708 bhp

When the M5 came out 5 years ago it was the beast to fear on the streets, no machine to match up to it. Now even the normal cars are packed full of horse power and any car is at 500 bhp, so Nowak took to remedy the issue. The most admirable thing that BMW did for the M5 was install the beautiful V10, and now its being substituted for a twin-turbo v8. the N635S 5.8 Hans Nowack Edition is taking full advantage of the V10 and unleashing the beast within. They have taken the V10 and completely retooled the engine with specialized components to help it produce a scary 708bhp without forced induction. Now I wouldn’t mind trying out this beast, what a machine, but I bet the price is just as mind boggling.

Japan Manga Cars

This is probably the coolest set of cars a person can have and they are all owned by one Yoshida San. Yoshida is a matured gentlemen, an avid gamer, and the owner of AGE SOFT a video game software house. I can’t believe how funky these cars look with the manga on it, I really like what he is done even though many will not appreciate it, but in Japan they are beautiful.
