The ultimate gentlemen's hot rod.
M5 > that ugly POS.
that car is hotness.
favorite car on the road right now.
Too bad the interior is garbage.
Not defending the SRT-8, but paying for a new M5 < *.*
I would hope so for nearly $50k more.
how do you do a burnout like that?
Too bad you're wrong.
Holy shit .

M5 > E55 > Cts-v > Srt8

my buddy has a 300C hemi, fully loaded, its way shitty.
the gauge cluster and instuments are fucking green
sick vid tho
But Officer, I Was Only Going 15 Mph!
That car was teamed by SCCA champion Erich Heuschele and Dalmier-Chrysler Head Engine Developement engineer, David Zelkowski. They actually finished 6th overall in that hemi powered beast. We beat Heuschele two years when we finished 6th in 2003, but Zelkowski was teamed with a Michelin test driver in a nice viper and won it in 2002 (we got 4th) and 3rd in 2003.[size=-1][/size]
Sounds more like a Acura TL or Cadillac CTS than a 300C, both of which I've driven numerous times since they debuted. The 300C is very nice inside, as are all the LX cars. I would hope some vehicles hailing from Europe and carrying stickers of $20k or so more would be slightly nicer inside.
