I don't know why everyone is assuming the car will be a total pig. Sure, it will be bigger and have a larger engine, but remember, the e90 m5 isn't too much heavier than the old e39 and its engine is only marginally heavier despite the 2 extra cylendars(e90 v10 weighs 529lbs - ~2lbs heavier than the s62 v8). I have a feeling the car will probably be slightly heavier, but if the e39/90 comparison (e90 m5 4034lbs (cite: sports car magazine) e39 m5 4024lbs (cite: edmunds.com)) is anything to go by, not by much.
