I wonder where they'll go as far as power... the current 511 bhp surely isn't too underpowered!
I'm guessing a twin turbo small block V8 with around 575 bhp at the cranck and out of this world electronically limited torque

I also saw a host of other upcoming/in-test top secret cars at the BMW of North America performance test center in SC a few weeks ago when I was out there for meetings.

My favorite part was when the sprinkler systems wet the track down, more interesting than the wild new cars themselves

It could not possibly be a new M5. The next gen 5 series will have redesigned body and will be out probably as 2011 model year. The car on video is a standard current M5 with some unfinished custom bodywork.

Thats one of the big reasons I would buy a challenger handling & power would blow the American car away but there's that classic look the M5 cant hold a candle to
