BMW has responded to powerful new rivals with updates for the M5 and M6 - including a racy new 575hp Competition Package option
Rapier SL-C – 222mph
This pseudo racer with number plates gets a supercharged 6.2-litre Chevy V8 making 638hp - a relatively modest output by the standards set so far. Still, it's good enough to shoot the Rapier Superlight Coupé, or SL-C, to a terminal velocity of 222mph. Oh, and what a name.
