Anyway - not too bad considering the M3's extra weight. 5 Sec's is nothing for this 22 Km "hell ride". Did it myself and have to admit that it is EXTREMELY demanding !!
But I sure agree that the 911 is more of a track car than the E46 M3 which has a lot more other skills.
Anyway... BMW claimed that a time "[...] just below 8.20 is possible". I wonder whether we will see this time one day !?!?
E46 M3 - 8 min 22 sec
996C2 - 8 min 17 sec
