Considering what the M5 can do on a racetrack, this car also delivers astonishingly good ride quality. Do you sense a proviso here? Yes, you do.

Getting a car to maintain flat cornering attitudes and near-neutral handling balance means stiffening the suspension components, which in turn inevitably means compromising the ride.

That's the case with the M5, which is a little less supple over sharp bumps and other pavement irregularities than the more mainstream members of the 5-Series lineup -- but not by much.

I suppose folks who like the sofa cushion isolation of, say, a basic Lincoln Town Car, might characterize the M5 as stiff, but I think that anyone who appreciates the sense of sports-car control that goes with such a thoroughbred as this would be more than pleased -- amazed -- at its comfort.
