Just FYI. This isn't the S63 with the 4.0L V8 engine. It's the older model. Either way, that car is much slower than it should have been. BMW is doing great in the video!

Because they were speeding on public roads, using their cells, cursing, improper lane changes, and reckless driving... recipe for 10 years behind bars

It was a public road indeed but it was closed for the test as said by the host. Those guys have budget

Couldn't understand a word but entertaining to watch anyway, good editing.

Also never ceases to amaze me how many cry babies there are for "street racing", oh no they accelerated hard and broke the speed limit for 3 seconds how dare they, won't somebody think of the children.

Yeah we do, the N63 in the M850i sounds better than any stock M157. I should know - I have one. And Merc's new 4.0 Biturbo sounds very similar to the 5.5 but revs higher with pops and crackles.

Hmm. The M850 sounds OK but nothing like a the 4.0 liter AMG.

On a different subject I wish the exhaust tips on the 850 would be a bit smaller. Those things are huge!! especially side-by-side with the AMG. Can that box even be called a tip anymore?
