I PARTIALLY agree with that statement. I mean how is any Ferrari/Lamborghini/Bentley etc. any different? I mean your paying about 2 crores + for something that will most definitely not be useable everyday and can be beaten by a smaller car in the cities.

As I said the key word being 'partially'. Yes a 500 bhp car is useless yes its too much money for what you can enjoy in city roads, but in the end, its all about getting your 'dream' car however insane the choice might be and never looking back. As I said in another thread, 500 bhp is useless one eg. being when a santro defeated me from Worli to peddar road in traffic with the santros small size allowing it to zip past small areas. As said worldwide, the M5 is the thinking mans Ferrari. It gives kinda the same experience in a cheaper, more useable, more 'easier' car to handle.

Guess? There's no doubt, that if I had the dosh, I'd buy my dream car too, even in an impractical supercar-country like India. I agree that the 2 crore Ferraris and Bentleys are equally pointless when it comes to performance.
Nevertheless, if I was in your shoes, I'd be the proud owner of an M5 as well. The satisfaction of 'owning' that car is second to none, and that's the best feeling an enthusiast (a rich one) can have.
Just keep the baby safe and don't get it scratched in the crowded streets of South Mumbai. Oh, and if I visit Bombay (which is very likely to be soon), I'd love to be able to witness it in person. I've seen countless M5s here in London, and it always fills me with excitement, but there's no doubt I'd flip out were I to see one in India!
Peace.

Heyheyhey!! Stop stealing subaru impreza STI lines!!


I guess to sum up the bhp vs driveability in india issue, i could say,

You can use some of the power all the time,
All the power some of the time,
But not all the power all the time!
