What People Are Saying Give it to me straight

Powertrain

This development car is running with a 4.0-litre version of the highly worked-over engine but still kicking out around 460bhp and it feels notably nuts in a straight line.
by EVO
Given that the wild BT92 was mildly disappointing (great engine, styling, noise – iffy handling, terrible ride) we didn’t know quite what to expect from a slightly tatty M5.
by EVO (Jun, 2009)
The acceleration figures for the M6 are slightly better, and those of the standard versions not even close.

Performance

But with a faintly insane 8550rpm rev limit – and you’d have to be here to fully appreciate what that sounds like.
by EVO
Brabham Racing calls it the BT64 and, to cut a long modification story short, it has a capacity of 5.5 instead of 5.0 litres, 605bhp at 8250rpm instead of 500bhp at 7750rpm and 417 lb ft of torque at 6250rpm instead of 383lb ft at 6100rpm.
by EVO (Jun, 2009)

Handling

Body control is exact and economical, roll minimal, available cornering speed on the smooth, open sections extremely tasty.
by EVO
The road’s snaky for sure but, for the most part, its ascent towards the clouds is gentle, its surface largely unravaged, benignly cambered and grippy.
by EVO

Opinion

’ question needed answering, we felt, it was this one and it was now.
