Never in my short life have I seen such a comparable (on paper) group of autos in the industry. Hell look at the upcoming ZL1 camaro that will be around 47k. Might not fit our tastes but it's like a CTS-V but lighter and way cheaper. Some serious machinery on the road these days.
what makes you say that just because its number one forever makes you think that it will be overtaken? pure speculation on your part. and i feel that the camaro will break down after 20000 miles and that the c63 will be overtaken by the mustang. wheres the fact?

The "regular" M3 he recommends to buy at the end of the clip is my exact car

MM is mildly moist . TG phrases - VW - very wet, MM - mildly moist, W - wet.

I think I watch too much Top Gear .

It is just speculation, but the gap between performance cars is closing across the board. You can spend as little as 30k and have 400+ hp. In the past you would have never thought of a M3 and Mustang being comparable performance wise. Today though many manufacturers are making some very competitive machinery, more than ever before.

they could pull another 3-4 seconds on dry tarmac..other than entertaining value, I find this comparison pretty useless.

Yes! That rocked and I hadn't thought about that re track day (can one disable it?) I drove a 3er rental in Europe and thought it was a cool feature - until I saw this

Must admit, feeling much less 'left behind' by the advance of tech since buying my MY09 E92

And M3!

BTW, did anyone think - as I did - that Audi's exhaust tweak, firing a droplet of petrol into the hot exhaust - produced a sound reminiscent of a fart?

BMW builds the best cars as well as fastest (if needed). No matter what Audi, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, and other fancy manufacturers try, BMW will always be there to scare them and fend them off.
