I was at a local BMW dealership and was told the M5 has 507 hp AT THE WHEELS and the 3.0 turbo has 300 hp AT THE WHEELS. That would make the output at the crank much higher, no? So which is it? Anyone know?
My understanding is that the RS6 has 450 hp at the crank...and the New S6 V10 has 435 at the crank, so how does the AWD car, heavier than the M5 with supposedly much less HP at the WHEELS even keep up with the M5?
I think the salesman was not quite correct?
And if this is true the 335 convertible at about 55k should be more than a match for the S4 convertible which is similarly equiped at the rediculous price of 94k. I thought this price difference is just INSANE for Audi to try to pull off.
