GTO Vs. M5
Have had the car for little over a month 2005 with 6,500 miles on it. Me and a good buddy of mine went down to the local street races Saturday night. Only a handful of American cars show up. A lot of civics and other crap like that. Showed up Saturday night around midnight parked next to two 05-06 GT stangs and a 06 Vette. Went to 2 race tracks behind some warehouses, nothing happened. Cops broke everything up before everyone got set up. Slow night...called it a night around 1:30am...driving down 3 lane highway spd limit 50mph I see a Silver M5. Friend said it was an 07, this car looks so nice just crusing. I pull up next to him slow down to pace him at 40mph in a 50 zone. Nothing happens for about a good 1/2 mile. Pull up to a stop light, do the inch game...I move an inch, he moves up an inch and so on. Light turns green we both take off, dead even at take off, go about a city block still neck and neck, 2 blocks dead even, then stop light. Inch game again, I look back and see a RX8 with all the trash on it (body kit, giant spoiler) trying to time the light on me and the M5 so he can get a running start basically. Light turns green mazda speeds by us. He has made it all the way thru the intersection before we get a 1/4 of the way in to the intersection. I plant the pedal to the floor first time ever, Take off like a crazy man who just robbed a bank, side by side is the M5 we are gaining ground on that RX8 like he wasn't moving. We blow by him doing 110mph, once we pass the mazda I see him turn around and go the other way to like his wounds. So its me and the M5 we hit 120mph in a 50, and the M5 is just slowly pulling away from me. It was such a rush....at the next stop like we roll the windows down and start laughing so hard about the RX8. Tell eachother good race and go our own way.....I get home, go online wondering what that M5 has for power. V10 w/ 500hp with a sticker price for $83,000 so I think I gave him a good run for the sticker price of the GTO.
