New BMW M5 Races to 300 km/h (186 mph) on Autobahn

When making a coktail, there are certain ingredients that you don’t need to taste in order to know that they’ll make an excellent mix. Want an example: you take a fresh BMW M5 F10, throw it on a stretch of Autobahn and remove its electronic top speed limiter just before you push the air-gas blending pedal.
This drink was prepared by Hans, the president of the M Flight Club (this is better than Fight Club), who unleashed the 560 hp of the new M5 in the Autobahn 65 in Germany. He managed to hit 300 km/h (186 mph) and he was... a bit disappointed.

Yes, that’s right: even though he went way above the 155 mph (250 km/h) level, which is the point where the electronic nanny would’ve stepped in if she hadn’t been fired, he was disappointed. This is because he was willing to go all the way up to the car’s “natural” top speed, 330 km/h (206 mph), but the traffic didn’t allow him to do that.

We can be pretty sure that he’s not crying over split gasoline, so he’ll probably be back with another cocktail that will quench his (and everybody else’s) quench for speed. We promise to invite you in for a drink as soon as this is ready. Meanwhile, you can watch the needles play in the video below.
