BMW MAGAZINE in the 2/2004 issue says:
DISPLACEMENT: 5.0
HORSEPOWER: 500HP
TORQUE: 368 LB-FT
CYLINDERS: V-10

SOURCE: BMW MAGAZINE
basically it has roughly the same amount of torque as the E39 with 100 more HP and in general E60's weigh less than E39's... this should be a serious beast

Isn't that torque figure a little low for a 5 liter V10?

No. IIRC, the LS1 made less torque than that, and those were V8s, with longer stroke (I assume).

The LS1 was typically rated at 350 ft-lbs. The LS6 (same 5.7 liters) was rated at 400 ft-lbs. Works out to about 70.2 ft-lbs per liter. For the BMW to make 368 ft-lbs with 5.0 liters is a very impressive 73.6 ft-lbs per liter.

The Euro-Spec Gallardo's 5.0 liter V10 makes 500HP and 376 lb.ft of torque with an 8,000 rpm redline, so the new M5's numbers don't seem too far off.
