Today a guy in an M5 got right next to me and floored it. I couldn't believe it. It's not every day that a guy in an M5 wants to race. This guy would punch it and try to outrun me everytime we hit a clear stretch of road.
We played a little follow the leader until we caught a red light. He was in front of me at the light. When the light turned green he slowly moved up and waited for me to get next to him. As soon as I got next to him (15-20mph), he nails it. He actually got a very slight jump on me (half car) but I slowly reeled him in in 2nd gear. I shifted into 3rd gear and we were door to door. I shifted into 4th gear and I slowly pulled to about 1/2 car in front of him. When I shifted into 5th gear (95mph), his nose was just about at my rear bumper. Then we slowed down and I looked over at him and smiled and gave him the peace sign. He completely ignored me.
I'm almost positive he had some sort of aftermarket exhaust. The car sounded mean.
Over all it was a great race and we were a very evenly matched from 20 - 95 mph. I was pretty happy to come out on top racing an M5 from a roll . (even though it was at speeds under 100mph)
