    • BMW F10 5 M5 Nurburgring laptime is in - 7:55 - 18 seconds faster than E60 M5, 5 seconds slower than E46 M3 CSL

      A BMW factory driver just clocked in a 7:55 Nurburgring lap time in the F10 M5. This makes the car 4 seconds faster around the ring than the CTS-V and 1 second faster than the Panamera Turbo, the only other 2 production sedans under the 8 minute mark. So, the F10 M5 is the new king of the ring for now until Porsche takes the time away from BMW with the Panamera Turbo S. What is also interesting is that the F10 M5 was faster by 10 seconds than the manual E92 M3 but slower than the E46 M3 CSL.

        I'm not sure. I myself never tried sport cups on wet, but according to the owners they don't work on wet because Sport Cups are almost slick tires.

        Hmmm, they say RS4 is a sub 8 minutes car and they are wrong.

        RS4 did it in 8:25, not sure how they missed the extra 26 second ?!

        Good point, I don't remember a sub 8 minute RS4 lap time.
