Well not that dumb since only one person was able to answer on the e39 board
What's quicker/faster an e39 540/6 or an U.S.e34 M5??....I'm less interested in the intangibles and more RAW data (butt dyno) or otherwise

The Hp is going to be about the same but the TQ on the is more and the 540.6 weighs in a little more. I have driven both cars back to back and one of my friends in the M5 and me in the 540.6 and I can say that on the freeway the 540.6 was a little faster but not much. 0-60 I would also say that the 540.6 was about tied with the M5. The thing about the 540.6 vs. the M5 is that the M5 can keep it's gear longer becase of the extneded redline. Thats about it.
