    M3 8:03

    Rumor has it that Sportauto recently ran the E92 M3 @ the N-ring and achieved an 8:03 on Cup tires. It is what it is, but still not a bad time.

    Re: M3 8:03

    8.03 is a massive 19 seconds faster than the e46 M3 (about 12 seconds taking the Cups into account). If the new CSL can improve by 12 seconds compared to the e46 CSL, it will run a 7.38 Ring time.

    More realistically, any time below 7.45 for the new CSL would be an extraordinary acheivement.

    Actually no, 8.10 min according to G. Richter.

    IMO, this sounds rather optimistic - especially given its added weight and suspicious brakes!

    Here are some other Sport Auto times for reference:

    8:04 R8
    8:05 997C2S
    8:09 RS4
    8:09 M6
    8:13 M5

    The M3 has just delivered a lap time of 1:14,3 on the HHR (Sportauto). Not bad - but nothing to get excited about either

    Not really, if you consider that the tires can give a 7-9 sec. advantage. Anyway, I guess we will see shortly when Sportauto runs the article.
