Which is quicker around Cadwell Park, car or bike? We pit the new M5 against BMW's hottest super bike to find out
A car as special as the new BMW M5 requires a test drive with a difference. So with that in mind we took it along to Cadwell Park's wet track to see how it compares to BMW's fastest superbike to see which is fastest.
But with a starting price of £12,250, the BMW S1000RR is a fraction of the M5's £73k price tag. It has a dry weight of just 178kg and produces 193bhp from its 999cc engine - that's a terrifying 925bhp per tonne – can go from 0-60mph in just 2.9 seconds and has a top speed of 190mph. In other words, it's very, very fast.
