These time are very reliant on what cars wear R rubber and which ones do not. There is NO CHANCE lN HELL that with the same tires, a top driver and dry weather that the new 2055kg RS6 Avant with a slushbox is quicker around the Nurburgring than the 1750kg (both these figures are the dry weight) E60 SMG M5 sedan.

I think we have more competition with the other Japanese monster coming out soon. It is my understanding, that the new 09 Skyline, bound for the U.S. lapped the ring in under 8 minutes, the fastest ever. :1zhelp:

However, I agree that tire compounds and driver m\make a HUGE difference. An awesome magazine shootout would be these three cars, with the same driver and same spec tires. Who would be the fastest then????
What planet are you on? The GTR is a 2-seater in no one designed to compete with the M5. Of course it'll be quicker around a track but I don't think you'd find any of US trading. On the highway though, it keep up top with our cars or do it in as much luxury. Furthermore, it won't sound like the offspring of an F1 car either.

The RS6 sedan will be a close run thing. The Avant is too much of a pig to compete.
