Please discuss.

It wouldn't surprise me if something happens again in the next 9.32 months.

From the optimistic viewpoint,

BMW should employ him to provide Crash Test Data or Testify as to the Structural Integrity of the Vehicle.

He certainly has enough experience on this topic.

Oh, and I'll take 9.72, I think he is getting better....

Don't forget he made himself into a legend now so it won't take more than 6 months.

In this case I would have to estimate 2.42 months given the massive increase in torque

my logic for saying 9.63 is because i know he could easily crash it under 9.5 months, but he always pulls up and coasts towards the end, so it will take a little longer

If I were given free M3's I probably would've wrecked at least one myself.

Beat me to it. The legend of his legendariness will be legendary. Much like Kung Fu Panda, it will be the stuff of legend.

And once again I say, whether it be scoring Olympic Gold or crashing M3s: not only is this guy fast, he's consistent.

9.58 months

Two high-profile crashes in M3s, and his reward is a high-dollar ad deal with another carmaker. The rules we play by don't apply in the world of celebrities and athletes.

Nissan should set the rev limiter of his GT-R to 4k rpm and speed limiter to 75mph before they deliver the car to him

I'm sure they don't want the bad publicity now that he's officially tied to them. At least when he crashed the M3's he had no ties with BMW.

Guy is a tool. An egotistical maniac who can't drive for shit. Must be because of a childhood spent running from the drug lords.
