so not under 8 minutes
Not according to the press release, becasue I'm quite sure they would have mentioned 7:59 if that was the case.

So anything between 8.00 and 8.13 :byebye:

Let's see what sport auto gets, then it's compareable with the time the M5 got (same driver, conditions known etc.)

When will the Sport Auto with the M6 Supertest be available?
At this time I don't think anybody know that. Not officially anyway.

I myself is very interested to see what the new RS4 accomplishes.
And the M3 CSL Loaded.

And I'm still waiting for the test of the Volvo S60R that they shold have done last year. (got postponed for unknown reasons) :hihi:

I'll bet you the RS4 is under 8 minutes.

No way! Not with normal street tires.

8 minutes and less is only for real sportscars. The RS4 is still a very sportive limousine. I doubt that the new 997 S will do in less then 8 minutes.

With AWD, it will be very interesting. Audi has not made a reasonably light car until this one (about 3,400 lbs curb weight I hear). With 400 hp and the proper gearing... I agree less than 8 min is a stretch, but it will certainly beat the M5's time I'm afraid.

I think the 997 S has already been tested in under 8 minutes.

997 S with Performance Chassis - 7:59
997 S with Sport PASM Setting - 8:02
BMW M3 CSL - 7:50
M3 CSL with special tires, or?

The 997 S values are not from Sport Auto? I think the next issue will have the 997 S Supertest. Then we will have comparable times. But under 8 minutes is dammed good.

Well OK then. If the M6 beats the 997S, I'll be very impressed!
why? the car has 150 hp more and costs 30.000 € more. Even beating 997 S for one or two seconds you have to pay 30.000 € for that :crying2:

Because it's a very luxurious car, and is carrying 400 lbs more. The 997S is a pure sportscar, the M6 is a luxury sports car. Probably, it will cost about $20,000 more than the 997S here in the US.

30.000,-- € ?!?
You are exaggerating here!

The base price of the M6 is 106.500,-- €

The base price of the 997S is 85.176,-- € but you have to pay for a lot of optional extras that are standard for the M6. For example: Metallic paintwork (795,--), cruise control (430,--), electric seats (1.470,--), sport seats (380,--), heated seats (390,--), partial leather trim (3.860,--), multifuction steering wheel (480,--). If you also go for the ceramic brakes - a MUST-HAVE - (7.830,--) you have to pay ~100.800,-- € for the 997S. All the optional extras for the M6 are options for the 997S too.
