    BMW E60 M5 posted a time of 7:52 at the 'Ring!

    http://www.rhein-main.net/sixcms/detail.php/1879435?topic_id=731907

    Is this true? If it is, then I gotta admit, the M5 IS a sports car.

    If I remember correctly, Ring-time of the M5 was more like 8.13 min in one of the last issues of sportauto.

    Exactly, that's why I'm confused. How could the time have been improved by 21 seconds?

    Maybe they used Michelin Pilot Sport Cup tires?

    Re: BMW E60 M5 posted a time of 7:52 at the 'Ring!

    The 21 second lap time improvemement was he direct result of a new option on the BMW M5, ... DTC

    Joining ABS,ASR,DSC and SMG, BMW has introduced a new system and acronym in the automotive world: DTC, Dynamic Time Control.

    DTC allows drivers, owners and automobile journalists to
    compute accumulated time, actual lap time and estimated times and speeds to produce timing numbers,speeds and results to fit any desired scenario.

    Fully inegrated into the vehicles systems with interface capability with testing equipment, it can also can reduce commuting times and provide data results to resolve performance issues.

    Hingebar Dansk,the systems project engineer manager for DTC, states that the new system will enhance driving enjoyment, improve fuel consumption, lap times and attract owners to interact precisely with their driving experience, thereby providing greater customer satisfaction.

    Makes me want to pick up an E39 M5 for 15.000 Euros and install DTC on that
    Deceitful Time Conjurer is what I'd call it...

    This particular model was tested with a beta version of BMW's new " Active Sunshine " , where all the gloomier/wetter microclimates of the long track are equalized by ionic cloud control to simulate late afternoon in San Diego in mid summer . Developed especially for the British market

    How did they get EPA and NHTSA permission for this feature?

    You forgot to mention that it also stops brake dust from adhering to wheel rims!



    Sorry. I just got carried away after reading another thread.
