Surely they could of gotten there hands on a M5C for an even match...

A movie chase would have more credibility then this mess, M5 launches early, next second E63s right behind it

Indeed. That was a track race where the M5 Comp's handling advantages and even its mild power increase over the non-Comp would've made all the difference. I get these mismatched comparos on the YouTube channels that review something different week in, week out but I don't understand it from Top Gear or Chris Harris.

This was clearly just a scripted race with some great looking slides. The outcome is irrelevant - there is no way after a head start like that an E63s could catch let alone pass the M5. Does anyone know if they timed them both around the track for the leader board?

Thanks for sharing. As I have always said: these two cars are so evenly matched it will come down to the driver to see who prevails. In this video, looks like the E63s was staged to win.

A little disappointed. I thought Harris was above the Need for Speed/Fast and the Furious productions.

Sure, but what about the production team at Top Gear?

I am humorless and incapable of abstract thought so I was upset by this video.

The M5 braked at the apex of the follow through, no one does that. The Merc didn't.

I think I read a comment of Chris Harris that the M5 comp was'nt yet available or even announced at the time they filmed this head to head.

Good entertainment, but was hoping for an actual time attack lap rather than a choreographed ballet. Tough choice between those two!
