But suppose you prefer to participate instead of spectate. What if you’re a type A instead of a type B? Well, there’s a sedan for you as well.

The BMW M5 proves it’s more about the journey than the destination. Today’s Bavarian super-sedan is the latest in a long lineage of fine performance machines that goes back decades. This car is spacious and comfortable but also blindingly fast. If you need to get somewhere in a hurry the M5’s twin-turbo V8 with 560 ponies will get you there. Just aim it carefully before you pull the trigger…

    My turbo RSX

    No SRT Viper ..What a shame a manual gear box and powerful engine in a car that’s so awesome to cruse in it make you take the long way to your destination

  • Rickers

    Yea, your car is so awesome… they discontinued it.

  • Mick

    Actually they sold well. Also some cars liek the RSX were discontinued because they weren’t good or didn’t sell well but for other reasons. With the RSX the new Civic Si in 2006 had the same powerful engine so that was one reason. Also Acura wanted to get out of the sporty 4 banger racer boy car market.

    Damn shame most of these cars are unattainable for the masses… Why not include a couple reasonable cars in the mix? How about a Miata? I would take a Hardtop Miata over the Mercedes and keep the leftover 80K in my pocket!
