Actually, the car they chase the M5 in is an Peugeot 406, apparently in
higher trim version (wood, leather etc.), so I believe it has the 3 liter
V6 193hp engine - still much slower than M5, but in heavy trafiic
horsepower is not the most important factor.
The old Mercedes is used to chase the Citroen XM and several Peugeots 605.
I'm not sure, but I believe I saw the "450SE" badge on the trunk... so
despite age, it's pretty fast.
