What to do in a very boring day if you have a BMW M5 F10:
First of all you remove the cars electronic top speed limiter just before you push the air-gas blending pedal, and then you take the beast on a stretch of Autobahn. From now on fun is guaranteed to be continuous and rising.
This experiment has been made by Hans, the president of the M Flight Club, in a nice, not too sunny, nor rainy day. He unleashed the 560 hp of the new M5 in the Autobahn 65 in Germany, managing to hit 300 km/h (186 mph). Any normal person would think this is awesome, and say woow, nice, good job, or lots of other things like these. But no Hans. No. He was dissapointed. Even though he went way above the 155 mph (250 km/h) level, which is the point in which the electronic top speed limiter that, if you remember, was removed at the beggining of this article, he was disappointed.
Appearently he wanted to push the car to its extreme limits, and wanted to go all the way up to the car’s “natural” top speed, 330 km/h (206 mph), but he forgot he wasn’t on a special track, he was on an Autobahn, and traffic didn’t allow him to fulfill his plans.
But yet again, I really don’t think that gas is one of his biggest problems, reason for which we will be expecting another boring day, with maybe another results. Hoping better ones.
