New RS6 8:09 around Nurburing?

Sorry if this is a re-post, but according to Edmunds : "Stephan Reil, says it will turn a lap of the Nürburgring in 8:09, some 20 seconds faster than the previous-generation RS6."

That would make it about 4 seconds faster than the M5 Sport Auto tested. :grrrrr:
This means that the Sedan version will be even faster with 300lbs less weight. :eek:

+1 also wondering about this. I seem to remember an interview with Sabine, ring-taxi driver, that unofficially the taxi drivers are not allowed to go faster than 8-minute laps, but that she wouldn't acknowledge not having done it. To me, that means the E60 M5 is capable of sub-8 minute laps in the hands of a pro.

I think that other monster pulled a 7:3x lap time. Check out http://www.r35gtr.com/, and scroll down to the September '07 updates. Appears that they already gunned down the 997 Turbo, and were setting their sites on a lap time equal to or besting the Carrera GT at 7:28.
