Loaded BMW CSL M3 sets new record -- 7:22 on Nürburgring

Quote:
Yesterday we succed with our timeattack. We did 7 minutes 22 seconds on the Nordschliefe at the Nürburgring in Germany. The Germanys very own BMW CSL "guru" Tom Schirmer (Shirmer Motorsports) change the whole set-up and many parts was changed in the chassie past weeks. And that helped us getting the this fantastic time.

To bad it was cold, only +4degrees, to cold for getting proper temp in the tires and we also have some cars in our way at the track. But we are very happy now. We know we have 10 more seconds to find if the tiretemp etc. But now we are 5 seconds faster that the PaganiZonda, 13 seconds faster than the Swedish Koenigsegg and 5 seconds faster that the Carrera GT. We are now the fastest roadlegal BMW in the world on the Nürburgring. We will be back at the Nürburgring in march to catch the EDO Porsche, time 7:15. We now know we can beat this car. And i want to send my many thanks for all support along the way.
This video is amazing & so is the driver, it is a must see

(Klaus W of KW which is KW of KW sent us the video )

Heck yeah I was just going to post it too LOL!

This video is a testament to how well the development of the KW Coilovers really are. The original team had been working with the pss9’s and was getting a lap time of 7:45 (this was 2 years of development with it) then they switched to KW - and this is the result the 3rd year!! Record braking.

Also all the major race teams for the past years who have raced on Nurburgring have dominated the track boards with KW's as part of their race specs - http://nuerburgring.gosign.de/Race-results.366.0.html and other recorded races.

Guys let Sam or I know if you need any help or have any questions about the KW coilovers - results like this speak for itself, makes us happy to be KW Dealers

But the KW isn't the only change so they didn't cut 20s with just the KW's.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure that supercharger has something to do with the Ring lap times.
