Top Gear driver does a little drifting here and there with the 2012 BMW F10 M5.

In the latest issue of Top Gear Magazine turbocharging is the theme and between the pages the Stig tries out the 2012 BMW F10 M5.

Here's a video that show's how much the Stig enjoys thrashing the new M5 about. It seems the car was made for smoking and drifting. But there's also a point to all the fuming - Top Gear Magazine pits the M5 against arch-rival the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG for a head-to-head bout.

The 2012 BMW F10 M5 comes with a 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 with an output of 560 PS (412 kW / 552 hp) and 680 Nm (502 lb-ft) of torque. Gearbox is a seven-speed M Double Clutch Transmission that enables the car to accelerate from 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.4 seconds.
