Ummmmmm...... sure it did. Did you perhaps notice that first, the Gallardo's lap was in the wet (unless, of course, you refer to the Spyder, which would be... interesting....), and secondly, that was the first iteration of the Gallardo, and not the LP560-4, which did the lap in 1:19.5, which sort of........ smokes the M3, just a little?

Also, different days, different temperatures, etc., etc.... valid comparisons can't really be drawn from the Top Gear times, as we all know....

I agree - the M3 is an amazing achievement, but a statement such as that is rather... misleading.
