According to readers and voters of the German magazine Auto Bild Sportscars, a certain BMW won the first prize as the best sports car of year 2012.

Of the 71.000 voters, a stern 27 percent voted for AC Schnitzer’s F10 BMW M5. And it’s easy to see why. After some tinkering, the engine develops 620 HP and 790 Nm of torque, all while keeping the emissions on the same level and even improving on fuel efficiency.

Coupled with a redesigned body kit with better aerodynamic capabilities and a reworked suspension, this bimmer will manage an acceleration to 100 km/h in just 4.1 seconds while topping at 305 km/h.

So what about you, do you think this certain aftermarket project has earned its place? With so many great tuned vehicles out there, you have the choice of something to fit your tastes just fine. And it might not be this F10 BMW M5, great as it might be. It all comes down to individual preference, but the majority has spoken on this contest.
