Hans, a German native who happens to be the president of the M Flight Club, had the chance to drive the brand-new, BMW M5 F10 powered by a 560HP twin-turbocharged V8. And like any car-nut living in Germany, he took the sports saloon to the Autobahn.
The road is the Autobahn 62 towards Trier and this particular M5 had the 250 km/h (155 mph) speed limiter removed. The driver pushed the pedal to the metal and hit 300 km/h (187 mph). However, he was a bit disappointed, as he couldn’t reach the M5’s 330 km/h (206 mph) top speed due to –ahem- traffic.
We bet that he won’t rest until he does hit the car’s actual top speed, so expect another video sooner rather than later. For the time being, you can watch the in-car 300 km/h run video after the jump.
