I think they look awesome.
I think the car above looks excellent and the wheels do too.
However, I've seen two silver M5's and they looked nothing like that. I think there is a lot of photo-trickery and flash clever-buggery going on in that photograph.

You might have something there MrMe. There is definitely something more attractive about that photo than I've seen in the flesh.
Photographed in a studio with precise directional lighting to accentuate the lines and then stuck on a nice background and buggered about with.
Don't forget thats the LCI model, revised head lights make it look meaner/lower at the front, plus the kidney Grills are changed.
I'm still getting over the fact BMW now want over 100k for an M6 - who the hell is buying these full price??!
It''ll be taken outside with additional lighting. Check any of the pics in Evo that Deano takes - nearly all of them with additional lighting.
Silver is the new, erm, silver. It's just a bit, well, boring. Yes, yes, I know I've had a couple of silver cars, but that was ages ago

Whilst I agree with you, it's the same with the R8.
The M6 starts at £93k. The standard R8 starts at £93k. The R8 Spyder starts at £101k.
The V10 R8 starts at £113k with the V10 Plus being £125k for a manual car.
Both without any options.
A basic 991 Carrera S is £84k now with the 4S starting at £88k. If you want a Turbo (not an S) they'll take another £30k from you. The big point of course is that on any of those cars you're going to spend a minimum of £10k on options, probably much more. I know someone who has a 991 Carrera 4S on order and has paid £104k for it....
If you want a Turbo (not an S) they'll take another £30k from you.
Whereas the additional cost to them is about £5k. Porsche love the 911 Twbo, it is the highest-margin product they have. I suspect it will be in their range forever.
Porsche are shifting a lot of metal at t'moment: http://www.tyresmoke.net/forum/tsn-motor-news/139958-porsche-delivers-15-000-sports-cars-may.html

Loving the use of "Twbo" MrP have a Tapatalk "like" for your collection.
4.2 seconds and no estate version...?
I think the RS6 is a fantastic looking car!
It will also surprise some 911 Trbo drivers too
