Ignition appears every Monday on the new Motor Trend channel. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend Subscribe now to make sure you're in on all the action! http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=motortrend Facebook - http://facebook.com/motortrendmag Twitter - http://twitter.com/motortrend Google+ - https://plus.google.com/101867967859016552744/posts Website - http://www.motortrend.com
2013 BMW M5 - Test Drive and Review
Gregory Berdette heads out for a wet and very rainy test drive in the 560hp 2013 BMW M5 (equipped with the premium package, but not the Competition Package...the vehicle in the BMW-provided shots is equipped with the Competition Package). The 4.4L twin turbo engine puts out more horsepower and more torque than the prior generation V10. BMW have done a good job of managing the turbo power, but you can feel a fairly sharp power curve lingering beneath the drive by wire throttle system. Overall, the M5 is an exhilarating drive, and BMW ergonomics are some of the best in the industry. I should mention that the drive selector is a bit odd. Moving the stick to the right to engage drive feels counter-intuitive. I understand that they wanted to free up the forward-back motion for the gear changes, but the stick is a redundant system to the paddle shifters...I never use the stick to shift the forward gears. It's much safer to use the paddle shifters. I was unable to put the M5 in park when I finished my test drive...there's nothing that tells the driver how to engage Park. Even the lot attendant at the Porsche dealership was using the emergency brake/parking brake to keep the M5 from rolling away (it shifts to neutral when you turn the engine off). One solution posted on-line is to follow this procedure, but then hit the start/stop button again (without your foot on the brake), and the car will engage "P" (park mode). Absolutely mystifying.... In the 2006 BMW 760, you have to hit the start/stop button twice as well when you are leaving the vehicle, but in this case the first push turns off the engine and the second push turns off the entertainment system (otherwise it stays a long time, even if you open the driver's door.) There must be a magical gnome working in the basement of BMW, whose primary job is to think of incredibly confusing ways to engineer a car.
2014 BMW M5 Competition vs 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S Model! - Head 2 Head Ep. 44
On this episode of Head 2 Head Jonny Lieberman is joined by Mike Shaffer and two extremely potent hyper sedans, the 2014 BMW M5 Competition and the 2014 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG S Model. Between the two of them, these two mighty Germans produce 1152horsepower and 1092 pound-feet of torque. On paper. After a day of horsing around/testing Shaffer and Lieberman grow suspicious of each twin-turbo V-8's actual output. So, they take them to the Dyno gurus at K&N engineering to learn what's what. The results very well may shock and amaze you. However, the boys come to the conclusion that numbers are only exactly that: only numbers, and numbers only matter so much. One true test of a super sedan is how it handles a twisting stretch of tarmac. The other is how much you yearn for the car after you've walked away from it. How much the keys itch in your pocket. While the results are definitive, this Head 2 Head is much closer than most. Have a watch! Head 2 Head appears every other Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend Subscribe now to make sure you're in on all the action! http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=motortrend Facebook - http://facebook.com/motortrendmag Twitter - http://twitter.com/motortrend Google+ - https://plus.google.com/1018679678590...
