Sport Auto will soon release the figures of the M5 Supertest.

This includes a lap around Nürburgring.

The previous M5 lapped in 8.28 min, the RS6 in 8.20 min.
The M3 CSL in 7.50 :confused3

So the question is, do you think the new M5 will manage the lap in over or under 8 minutes?

More times.

Will they use stock (street) tires or racing tires? That will likely have a big effect. Does anyone know what type of tires were used on the sub-8 minute times reported?

They use a STOCK car. Don't think the M5 will have r-tires from factory ;)
let's wait and see. you don't know the ambient temp and other factors. sometimes the track is wet at some corners and so on...

but if you ask me, it will do the "Ring" in 7:50 (+-5sec)

i think in some press realeases they mentioned it can do the ring in less the 8 sec
yes, but that was said by bmw and you could read that statement in the press release too.

we are looking for "real world" figures from "independent" car magazines...

Are they using the same car we guys can buy or a tweaked version? Not being deliberately cynical, but just wanted to make sure my understanding is correct/fair. Not just the tyres but everything/anything else. I voted for sub-8 minutes.

In the latest edition, which I recieved today, of the swedish car magazone, "Automobil" they claim that the E60 M5 will do the lap in 8.08. Now, if this is true, is the E60 slow or the E39 fast ?
