You realize how heavy this car is? That's a really good time for it's weight.
Well it's a prototype and the production weight will no doubt be heavier and the this unofficial time will be even more meaningless than it is now.

Yeah I've seen the leaks and honestly I'm not impressed. The concept looks so much better. Kinda like the supra concept which was so hot vs what we actually got which was a huge letdown. I'm reserving final judgement until I see it in person as a final result.

7:30? So what. It's a cream puff kind of a car. Too heavy and completely designed to cater to posers. The E46 M3 was the last of the true M cars.

I agree to an extent but come on that's an impressive figure. For the number junkies it does good. And for the record if you're talking about a purist car the e90 was the last true M. That V8 was a masterpiece and by every account an overall beast of a car besides it carrying a little extra weight.

Yep that's accurate. Wow! I'm impressed. Amazing really. Has to be mostly the big HP on the straights. At least the M3CS it beat was a "four door".

When it beats this kitty..
I'll be even more impressed //

https://www.autoexpress.co.uk/car-ne...urgring-record

But for now, that's a very respectable baseline time mark set for an early iteration or "prototype" of the big bodied gal... 🏎 looking at these records below... in this time range... keeping pace with some FAST company

🙀

Who's going to drive a car like this...?

That thing is still ugly as sin by comparison to what will be 8 GC. I don't know wtf MB was thinking in terms of design.

Are people really comparing this car to super cars designed for the track?

Yes it's big and heavy, but so is its competition. This is meant to be a sporty luxury car.
