Cool find. That e55 did as well as I would expect, given that the new m5 has 30-or-so more HP and a sequential manual instead of an automatic. The e55 is still my favorite sedan... A quick pulley change and the AMG-upgraded fuel MAP and youre talking another 80 HP or so.
Thats kind-of a strange sounding v10 in the new M...not like Im used to hearing. Its fairly small for a v10 though, that is probably why.

I really did not expect that outcome even if the E55 is stock.

no, why not ?

curb weights (90% sure)
MB - 4075 lbs 469 hp / 516 tq
BMW - 4050 lbs 500 hp / 384 tq

plus the M5 is around middle of fourth when he passes MB (around 110 mph)

im sure off the line MB would have him until upppp mph

and magazines do a test yet ?

Motor Trend tested them in a comparison test earlier this year. In their test, the E55 was consistently quicker.
However, I am sure that the E55 would dominate the M5 in the 1/4 mile. SMG is a bitch to launch from a dig.
