135i v M Coupe

Who wins on a track?

0-60: 4.8s (from BMW)

This car is heavier that the outgoing M3 yet BMW claims it is faster....

The BMWs were in LL2 for cars of $30,000 to $60,000, won handily by a Corvette with the Z51 package, at 3:03.6 (third fastest overall), followed by a Ford Shelby GT500 at 3:05.9, BMW 335i coupe at 3:10.5, and BMW Z4 M coupe at 3:11.7

If the 335i can top a Z4 M on Virginia International Raceway, then why not a 135?

However, here are Nurburgring lap times
7'50 - BMW M3 CSL E46
8'05 - BMW M3 E92
8'15 - BMW Z4 M Roadster
8'22 - BMW M3 E46 - 2000
8'22 - BMW M Coupe - 1998
8'26 - BMW 335i coupe - 2006
8'35 - BMW 130i

A Z4M coupe is definitely a faster car on a race track but it is harder to drive that is the only reason the 335i was faster. get a professional (Bill Auberlen)to drive both cars and the Z4Mcoupe will smoke the 335i on a road course. it would probably beat up on the GT500 also as long as there aren't to many long straights
