Video: The Stig Tests the BMW M5

/ Comments

Some say that the Stig was born twin-turbocharged. We don't know what that means either.

The 2012 BMW M5 has just been put through its paces by none other than the Stig himself. Known in-house as the F10, the sedan packs a serious punch and His Stigness handles it with the greatest of ease, drifting around tight corners and doing what he does best - getting the best out of performance cars. The new M5 is equipped with a 4.4-liter twin-turbocharged V8 engine that cranks out 552hp and 502lb-ft of torque. The mighty engine is mated to a seven-speed M Double-Clutch Transmission.

Performance for BMW's newest sedan is nothing to scoff at, as it can jump from 0-62mph in a meek 4.4 seconds. Check out the video below as the Stig shows off his skills and stay tuned for the awesome slow-mo drift sequence around the 32 second mark.
