Speaking Of Which... 2012 BMW M5 Makes Its Debut | Auto-Moto

Germany. Nurburgring. 
Twin Turbo 4.4 liter V8. 
553 horsepower. 500 lb/ft of torque.
 0-60 under 4.3 seconds. 

Gearheads will say "WTF?! A 8 cylinder?!" Understand that this is the same V8 found throughout the 5,6 and 7 Series and what's more cost effective then dropping in a steroid turbo injected motor block found in over half of your vehicles or build just one V-10 for 2 or 3 cars that might sell 2,500 a year?
