James May drives the new BMW M5
His verdict on the newest M-car? "It's a bit like Ronald McDonald"
Posted: 10 Nov 2011
So part of the fun of driving the new 552bhp M5,
absurdly, is in outwitting it and keeping
the engine idling. I played this for a bit and then discovered an even better game – pressing the little button that disables the system entirely. I recommend this, followed by sealing up the button with copious quantities of cyanoacrylate adhesive, or superglue. I’ve spent too much time in old cars to be able to relax in a £73,000 super saloon designed to break down at roundabouts.
