The 2011 BMW M5 causes mischief wherever it goes, whether on the pages of Car and Driver or here, on the Nürburgring, throwing up tire smoke as the rumored twin-turbo V8 lays down some rubber.


Enjoy the rumble of the expected 4.4-liter V8 on the lightly camouflaged M5 as it fights with the sound of the tires fighting physics and then the screech of the brakes as they fight the car's weight. Also notice how no one inside is wearing a helmet? Here's hoping these BMW employees were having hot laps for lunch.

(Hat tip to TheCroationGuy, who points out the traction control is indeed off!)
