Thank you, Forbes, for yet another pointless list

We… deliberately omitted some vehicles that rated higher on the particulate-emissions scale, including exotics like the Ferrari F430, uber-luxury cars like the Bentley Continental Flying Spur, and high-performance variants from Mercedes-Benz’s AMG line. Those cars have marginally worse emissions ratings than some of the entries on our list but are produced in such small quantities and driven so infrequently–on weekends or on racetracks–that they often don’t contribute much to air-pollution problems.

Forbes then goes on to rate the BMW M6 “sedan” as the third most, er, pollutingest car on the road, followed by the BMW M5 in the number two spot (the Jeep Grand Cherokee took dubious top honors).

What is the upshot of all this? Obviously, it’s that E63 and SL63 owners track their cars and put them away for the rest of the week, while their BMW-owning counterparts sit gridlocked in traffic, idling their carbon belchers and killing Mother Earth. Get with the program, BM!
