I have 2 takeaways from this video (thanks for posting).

1. As many of us have opined in the past, Pirelli sucks compared to Michelin.

2. Full stock M5C went 11.2 in the 1/4 on a wet track w/o launch control. DAMN, that is fast!

For sure! I have a 2021 M550i, but man… that M5! Still love the M550i. Especially for the comfortable suspension and seats.

Lately I have been tuning out Matt and CarWow.

Predictable and boring.

I'm just glad he finally got an LCI to run instead of the older M5 with all the launch control drama. Too bad about the wet track that foiled the launch control on its first outing.

Watched and not at all surprised just how much quicker the tuned M5 was against the rest but was a little surprised the M550i wasn’t a bit closer to the M5 Comp.

So the changes they made in the LCI probably TCM updates have defiantly improved. There were changes to the software and tcm from 19 to 20 comp especially with the digital dash update.

If the 550 was any better bmw would probably feel it would potentially steal sales from its M5

I thought that was the original reason the 550 was not sold in the U.K..

Looked good fun

It would be good to put a normal family car like say a Nissan Juke (yuk!) in there for comparison to see how fast these cars really are!

Excellent video from Matt and team at CarWow, highlighting the experience most drivers will not have a chance to repeat. Will predictably generate the expected number of views.

I have two more takeaways.
1. Is it always wet in the UK?
2. 500hp vs 1000hp isn't actually that much...

Yes - or a run of the mill typical mid-size "family SUV".

I doubt that blue one makes 1000hp. Probably closer to 800hp

Actually I am an expert in the field of determining the horsepower of a car after watching a video. The car's exact horsepower is 987.345.
