Thanks for the link, Gustav. Too bad the new M5 wasn't out for this test. Although track conditions vary, these 4dr lap times at Nelson Ledges were a bit discouraging. Their best lap time of 1:20sec is slower than my stock 1993 LT1 Corvette with factory tires and brakes. Oh...I forgot their test drivers don't have 7,500 laps there (like me). For reference, I believe a '97 345 HP Vette & '97 Viper tested by Car & Driver ran high teens at Nelson. I see the 130 MPH "kink" is still claiming victims...good thing that Audi didn't barrel roll!
