With the tuning done here as the Conforti test bed it should be the equal or better of the E39 M5 performance wise.
The current owner is a perfectionist where this car was concerned. If there is a perfect 8 Series car, this should be it
But the color wouldn't be my first choice either
Basically it is a collectors car (only 2-3 with that color), but still, not my choice. Although I have never driven one and I might change my mind. I have delusions of owning an E39 M5 heavily modified before I am too old
. I would save my pennies for the new M5 and I would be curious to see how the 850 would compare to the M5.
