This video would make sense to me if it were the stock 485 HP version of the GTR from 09-11 but it doesn't if its the 2012 to 2014 revs. The newer GTRs are a lot faster in stock form.
I will admit I have a particular dislike of the M6 because I owned a 2006 M6 for a year and was the single worst car I have ever owned by a substantial margin. And I have owned an X6M, which uses basically the same engine as the current M5/6. I liked the SUV but wasn't overly impressed with the engine.
Hey I hear you. I too am not a fan of the m6 or any other current bmw, besides the m3. I used to only drive bimmers and never imagined leaving the brand but weight and turbo charging every single car they make became a big problem for me.
