Got an e-mail from ASA and G-Power:

"Our car is good for everyday use, we traveled to Papenburg and back to Autenzell not(!) on a trailer like other record cars. "

"We did the record in the 7th gear with a longer differential. This setup would be good for over 400 km/h. As the weather was very bad, we had to stop more testing, it was raining, almost snowing, and a very strong wind. The real potential of this car is even higher, as we already know from our testing."

"Together with G-Power w
e made the world record, of the fastest street legal BMW, in Papenburg with 360 km/h!"

Scary, but awesome :D

730PS is some amount of power. It just makes you wonder about the next M5, and what tuners will be able to do with that :D

Mar/Apr 08 ML&E: Only ran 200mph at Nardo due to Vanos problems. Fastest car that day? That goofy Audi TT Bimoto (242.7mph).

Added some nice facts from further email communication:

"Our car is good for everyday use, we traveled to Papenburg and back to Autenzell not(!) on a trailer like other record cars. "

"We did the record in the 7th gear with a longer differential. This setup would be good for over 400 km/h.

Impressive!

Wish I could get El Diablo out on that track. :biggrinbounce:

What final drive ratio was being used in the test? Should be possible to do some calculations.

400 kph sounds very optimistic for this car's frontal area and horsepower...

Yup, geared to 400 km/h, but I beleive it should be somewhere between 360 and 400 km/h. Brabus CLS Rocket with 700+ HP does 365 km/h.

"Meanwhile the maximum speed (340km/h) journeys by the oem tyres became a limited. In the test journeys special high-speed tyres of the company Continental allow a speed of more than 350 km/h. And here is not still finished long. After chassis votes conclude and aerodynamics adaptations we raise speed in the spring the top again."

Anybody knows what tires they have on the car

Who needs one of those slow supercars when you can travel 220mph in total comfort, with 4 passengers and luggage for a vacation.
