DRIVING into next week, we have a Bavarian treat in store. First, our upcoming review of the 2011 BMW 550i, a sumptuous luxury car featuring explosive performance. The new 5er’s so potent, in fact, that we couldn’t help but notice that the F10 550i’s V8 has eclipsed the power figures of the mighty E39 M5. At our good friend Hardy’s suggestion, we compared ‘n contrasted the two Teutons on a serpentine roadway that snakes through a Connecticut forest known as the Devil’s Hopyard. Keep it locked!
