First, a side note: just take a look at it. Isn’t it one of the most lens-friendly cars in our garage? The point is, in reality it looks even better. And technologically? The “small M’s” increasingly gravitate toward the M5, losing their pure-bred stance and growing more practical. With vast torque, equally spread all over the revs range, you don’t have to fight for the surge as you had to in previous generations: you get it all easily. This way what we get is the total car, with fabulous DKG gearbox and, traditionally, microscopically precise driveline, with not a slice of inertia, lag or play. How do they achieve it?
