In pics: BMW M6, This Is Your Life

Think about this for a moment: the engine in this, the second generation BMW M6, scooped the International Engine of the Year award two years on the trot, 2005 and 2006. And in the two years that followed, it scooped the award for the best engine above 4 litres.
Some credibility, then. It's a 5.0-litre V10 derived straight from Formula One, packing a biblical 507bhp. That means 0-62mph in 4.8 seconds and a top speed of over 200mph. Be afraid of this car.
