    BMW F90 M5 Competition Nurburgring laptime test by Sport Auto - 7:35.90

    A 7:35.90 Nurburgring laptime test in independent driver hands is simply excellent for a four door sedan. No, this does not set a new production four-door record as it is slightly over ten seconds off the time Mercedes-AMG was able to set with their GT 63 S 4-Door Coupe.

    The Mercedes-AMG time was a factory effort with the goal of setting the laptime. Sport Auto turning a 7:35.90 in an M5 Competition without factory support (or software tuning games) certainly is realistic and impressive.

    They actually topped what Sport Auto managed to get for the M4 GTS:

    The cars are still good but M lost its identity. You would think they could at least give us a real track car.

    So you guys want to compare a factory driver lap time on semi slicks to a time set by a magazine? On the same day on Autobild on the same tyres the M5 Com was faster than the GT63S. I don’t get how people still take Nurburgring times seriously especially those set by a test driver.

    Agreed, too many variables in that circuit. Especially when it's never the same driver, day, temperature, etc. I don't take these lap times seriously.

    I don't really understand your objection. This network pointed out the Nurburgring is BS long ago: https://www.boostaddict.com/content.php?7419-The-Nurburgring-is-bull$

    That doesn't invalidate Sport Auto times though.

    It's not like it's their fault AMG went to set a record.

    Not the same thing as having a GT3 or GT350R or ZR1 you can walk into a dealer and pick up.

    Just pointing out AMG does. Manufacturers no doubt screw with their own internal testing but if M could easily one-up them and take it, they would.

    This is a great independent lap time for the F90 M5 IMO.

    No it certainly doesn’t invalidate the SA time and I’d argue that it’s more realistic, however you mentioned that the time is nearly 10 sec off the AMG.I was just pointing out that you can’t compare the two lap times as one was done on semi slicks with an AMG factory driver to break a record,totally incomparable to the SA time at the very least you should have mentioned that as those give the AMG big advantages.

    How is it not mentioned when the title says Sport Auto and in the body I state the AMG time is a factory effort? I actually did what you said I should have done...
