BMW M8 Does Lap Time of <7:30 at the Nurburgring

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Misha Charoudin made the next video of the high performance industry pool and he timed the new M8 going around. It did a lap time of less than 7:30 on the Ring! Impressive.

992 Carrera S was like 7:25 right? And 992 turbo 7:17 from what I'm seeing...I'd hope the M8 would be on par with the latter.

Impossible. A 600 HP RWD GT at over 4000 lbs vs a 3500 AWD sports car with 580 HP and suspension tuned for the track. Fundamentally they're very different. I appreciate both equally for what they are. My brother got a new F90 recently and it truly is a 4 door GTR.

thought bmw is trying to go the route of a different model for a 2-door version although being the same car (m3/m4).. shouldn't this be an M9? M8 = 4dr | M9 = 2dr ?

They are not competitors. Everyone compare apples to apples. You know credit is owed to this car and itís various models.

I would think the m8 GC will be competitors to that car.

You realize how heavy this car is? That's a really good time for it's weight.

You have it reversed. The even numbers are the two door. That's why the 7 is 4 door.

MR
This time is very respectful for a GT car of this size and weight. Cant wait for the M8 competition test car to see that time. As for the looks I'm still on the fence. Waiting for the final product.

impressive, but not surprised. I matched my GTS Laptime with my F90comp on Pzeros. The 4000+ lb V8 GT cars are defying physics now. When do we see a F90Comp official lap time?

the G80 is going to destroy the F80. The comp pack will be already over 500hp, it's lighter, and awd.

I think they will be in a different class.

Is that faster or slower than an M5? Be careful when comparing to other sport cars. Some may be running Mcup tires or such.

You have it reversed. The even numbers are the two door. That's why the 7 is 4 door.
Actually it's not about the number of doors but rather the body shape. Even number are coupe body and odd numbers are sedan/estate.

For instance there is both a 4-series and a 6-series Gran Coupe (and now the 6-series GT) which has 4 doors.
