This is the single most important statement for the F10 M5 in my opinion! Details please.

First of all, Ring times have really become marketing ploys, as they are all done under varying circumstances and on such a long track the times can vary by a lot etc...So I take them with a grain of salt.

Despite my above comment, did anyone REALLY believe the new F10 M5 wouldn't be a sub 8 min. car? Or be slower than the CTS-V? Come on...they've been developing this car for years and they squarely new what their competition was! Every M model has been better than the last, usually by alot! Why would it change this time? I for one, totally expected this. I think it might even have more in it than the 7:55 posted. But again, with a grain of salt...
