You’re right, they should’ve stuck a stroked S62 in it

To be fair, that statement applies to about 100% of fast modern cars on public roads.

Bimmerpost: IND dyno's F90 at 625whp stock.

BMW's S63 powertrain has helped define the meaning of having a turbocharged motor in an M car. The latest version powering the new F90 M5 pushes the limits of the twin-turbocharged 4.4L V8 motor yet further promising 600hp and 553lb/ft of torque. The 8-speed transmission paired with the newly adjustable drivetrain ensures the car’s abilities can be adjusted to nearly any driver’s preferences.

Once break in service was completed, we stopped to visit our friends at AMS Performance. Curious to see how accurate BMW’s numbers were on the car while still 100% stock, we hopped on the scales then Dynojet and soon found out.

With the fuel tank approximately 7/8ths full of 93 octane, we weighed in at 4268lbs. BMW’s curb weight estimate at 4370lbs is nearly spot on.

We believe the car was grateful for the chilly weather this morning as we strapped down to the dyno, the AMS staff and ourselves not so much as rain and wind blew in through the open garage door.

Our best run was in 5th gear/AWD/Sport Plus - a surprising 625 whp // 608 lb/ft torque. In all settings power was linear, difference between Sport Plus and Efficient only being about 15hp. We did one run in 6th gear/RWD/Sport Plus and hit the speed limiter at about 152mph/244kph, power maxing out at 593whp // 578 lb/ft torque.

Using these power and weight figures as a benchmark, we’re incredibly excited to move forward with our project and see what the F90 M5 is capable of. Please enjoy our photos and video below.

Had a ride in an M5 at a BMW X event today. Professional driver took us for a few laps of an autocross type course. Got to go twice. DSC turned off. Lots of sideways. That car is f*cking fast. Still can't believe it.

At least the M5 makes a lot less compromises on the street and is actually usable.
Is there a car with a higher percent of owners that take their car to the track than the GT3?

Seems like a bad example

I can think of a few. Since there is no proof it's not worth arguing about IMO.
