Hi, just for the record, since we're all discussing the m5's possible lap time of 7:52, does anyone know how fast the Enzo has done it ? Just to put it perspective. Because even though the Enzo would be seriously fast, the m5 is too.

Thanks in advance

Hey, thanks for the figure, if the GT did in 7:40, it wouldn't be stupid of me to suggest that Enzo, can\could pull it off in low 7:30s, and MAYBE even 7:2x

Sport Auto Test time of the Carrera GT is 7.40.

Enzo is probably not tested by the Sport Auto.

I doubt the Enzo would be able to do a 7:2x, maybe 7:4x, in fact it would not be a surprise to me to see the GT run faster laps than the Enzo.

I'd imagine the Enzo is a faster car than the GT, but the GT was specifically developed on the 'ring, so that may count in its favour.

Yes, though I don't know, I too reckon it would beat the Carrera GT, but the big question is by HOW MUCH..

Hello! I think C GT and Enzo times wil be quite close to each other.
The "regular" McLaren F1 is too soft for track duty and I would believe be slower than both (not by much, but slower).
Take a F1 LM (or GT, but there are only 3 of those, 1 being McLaren's car...) and I would bet half my salary it brings home the record. Probable even against that dutch donkervort with enough wings to enter fighter plane contests! ;)

Any millionaires... give it a go... otherwise, we can just dream lovelove .

Well said, but, if we're to keep this discussion at a serious level, I think we should leave out such cars as the LM edition of the mighty F1, we're talking stock here, and even though McLaren themselves have manufactured the LM, I still think it is a bit edgy, if you know what I mean. The only way it would be fair to compare LM editions or similar editions, would in my opinion be, if porsche, and\or ferrari too, would have made for example a Ferrari Enzo GT, og a porsche carrera gt R or whatever, stripped down versions...
But still, any assumptions about the lap time ?:M5thumbs:

For the track length of 20.832 km, these are the top times:

Honda NSX-R 7:56
BMW X5 LeMans 7:49.9
Mercedes 190E 7:46
Gemballa GTR Biturbo 7:32.5
Porsche 993 GT3-R 7:23
BMW M3 GTR Schnitzer 7:12.3
Radical SR3 1500 Turbo 7:12
March BMW 832 F2 6:28
Porsche 956 6:25.9
Porsche 956 6:16.9
Porsche 956 6:11.1

I rounded after the decimals and all the track times came from: http://nurburgring.de/?rubrik=rekorde&order=Distance

For the 22.6km track setup, here are some times (including the GT) from an article.

1995: Gemballa Turbo: 7 min 52 sec

1999: shk Porsche Turbo 7.46

2001: Techart GT 7.43

2001: Gemballa GTR60 7.32,52

2004: Porsche Carrera GT 7.32,44

Thanks a lot, by the way, who drove the CGT ? Porsche's own test driver ..? This too should be included in the equation, as for example it is more likely that a professional racing driver, would do a better lap time, than just a enthusiast, if you know what I mean. Still, great info... If the Porsche did it in 7.32,44, the Enzo probably does it a coulpe of seconds quiker maybe.. Thanks anyway kinggf :thumbsup:

I don't know who got that exact time for the CGT, but Sport Auto magazine got 7:32 also (no fractions of a second recorded though). The new M5 got 8:13 and both of these were for 20.6 km track setup.

I hope this link works. It's a scanned image from another thread on this site of the Sport Auto test of the M5 lap time with others to compare. http://www.m5board.com/vbulletin/attachment.php?attachmentid=2859
