OK, all this talk of the new M5 got me wondering just what is this car all about. A quick google and there are a few videos and some guy who posted his dyno pulls from the M5boards. Enjoy.
These torque numbers seem a bit low. Too bad that M button doesn't help with the torque. Looks like they just about kept up with the AMG, but they are sure to be leapfrogged when the new AMG comes out. Even Caddy hopefully will up the power. I hope it gets the LS7 or at least some FI N* at about 500/500.
from the looks...the vette smoked the lambo...wow

What changed between the dyno sheets? Second and third ones with mods or...? 395rwhp on the first dyno sheet would be a 21% drivetrain loss. That's pretty damn bad if it's true.
The torque is to be expected out of that motor...

The new Z06... Best Vette ever.
As for the M5 dyno sheets, different power modes on the vehicle. Daily driving is 400 or so horses, throw the performance button and it jumps to the 500.

Sorry, I just glanced at the dyno sheet and assumed those were peak numbers when they're not. My mistake.

Very nice indeed. I agree the Corvette is about the best thing to ever hit the road for the money though.
