Are you even aware of what is coming down the pipe from anyone BUT M?
Did you know the official BMW Nordshliefe time (8:13) is 4 seconds slower than an RS4 with R-comps, and way slower than that of the GT-R (promised to be faster than a 911 TT)?
- Is there any doubt the BMW can handle the Caddy around a race track?
- GTR is more a 911 TT competitor and this should be a sub 8 minute car
- RS6 - 580hp - M5 competitor and give the parasitic losses of Quattro I already have a bet the E60 M5 will be faster.....
So in the M3's class.....RS4, RS5 (using a tune RS4 engine), 911, SLK....other than the 911, the M3 stands pretty well.
