Not sure what you mean by "all these times". It's only the 7:15 GTR time that seems bogus to me. As I said, 7:35 might happen with some kind of tweaked engine.
Lol! I'm just messin around w/ you lucid!

Besides, I don't even want the GT-R. (I'd test drive it though).

I'm looking to get a German car for my next purchase.

Start putting your money away for the M3 then. The rumors say 8:03. I'd say it'll do 7:33 though and beat the GTR rumors with the V10 M5 engine!:

1. With a better driver we are very likely to see a sub 8 minute run.
2. With Cup+ tires (rumored to be production tires on 19s in Europe) and M-DCT I'd also be willing to be Sportauto breaks the magic 8 min mark as well.
3. Look at the SERIOUS supercars an 8:03 already bests!

I dont see cup tyres as a wise choice, I mean they have 80 treadwear which is really low for a car to be used daily, the 220 treadwear I have only last me about 7 months, If its going to be on a track then maybe, but I wouldnt want those on mine which is my daily driver
