Today’s Gaia Molester

How’d you like a V-10 with 500 horses at the touch of a button?

For a speed racer looking to fly beneath the radar, it was the perfect car. Which, of course, is why BMW decided to change it, most notably by adding a magical button that, when pushed, adds yet another 100 horses to the engine. Simply depress and, voila, you’ve hit the 500-horsepower threshold, and can now smoke a Ferrari Scaglietti.
The root of all this temptation is a 5.0-liter V-10 evolved from BMW’s Formula One vehicles, a power plant that won the highly coveted (seriously) International Engine of the Year award. It is indeed a technological wonder, carved from lightweight alloys and boasting individual throttle butterflies that let the fourth-generation M5 zip around in slightly harnessed mode – allowing for better gas mileage and civilized comportment – before some button-pushing fool unleashes its uberdemons, which can rocket the M5 past 190 mph. I, of course, am one such fool.

All this can be yours for $85,000 and you get 10 mpg! Woo-hoo!
Let the Gaia Games begin!
