Interesting that they have a very similar power to weight ratio

Slower in a straight line because a smaller engine, but all that weight in the m5 will be a handful to stop and steer

I still think the M5 will sell better because the car has a reputation and a pedigree.

Well maybe, Its not impressive, I mean it is, Not sure how to word this properly, But We all know the same generation M3s(M4 Shut up!) are always faster round tracks then M5, And slower in acceleration.

But the gap in weight and power is getting bigger in bigger between them.
