New BMW M5 to get Twin Turbo V8 or V10

BMW is strugling with a dilemma. They donít know what engine to put in the nose of the 2011 M5: a Twin Turbo V8 or a V10? The first option sounds most logical because both X5M and X6M are using this one yet, but most of us probably agree that the M5 needs to keep running on a V10.

BMW actually want to work with the V10, but because of the CO2 limits in the USA that might become a problem which isnít there with the TT V8, more is that both engines would almost be even powerfull. Why then still think about the V10? Because BMW says that they will use the V10 when the American government allows them to do so. Stay tuned for more on thisÖ

Give it a turbo V8.  It needs the torque.

OK whats that mean ?.....

Come its the fastest, best looking 550HP SUV... quicker than the Turbo S.... Porker.

I'll get borded with it in a year, give it to the Mrs, but another Lambo or the 458 for me..... all planned....
Or I'll just trade her X5 in on the new M5, give her the x5m.... but she is dangeresh enough with the 4.8sport adding another 200HP may not be such a good idea.

I'd rather have that engine in an M5 sedan, or better yet, wagon.  But then I don't get the SUV concept.  :doh:
