They tested the last four M3 produced by BMW
Track lenght 3.667 MT.
m3 e36 -
m3 e46 -
Interesting the duell between the last two...
Final lap times:
e92 1:47,2 (5,1sec faster)
Michelin Pilot Sport for all the cars but for the
e30 they used :Pirelli P 6000
So no sport Cup.
Other lap times : (they have more than 300 cars tested)
m3 csl (sport tires) 1.46,60 sec.(40th position)
m6 1.46,90 sec (43th posizione)
m3 e92 1.47,20 sec (48th) (no sport tires and only 0,6 sec slower)
m5 1.48,55 sec (60th)
m3 e46 1.52,30 sec (130th)
m3 e36 1.53,40 sec (154th)
So the gap between the new M3 and the e46 is 5,1 sec.
The gap between the e46 and the previous e36 is only 1,1 sec.
On this track....
