This month ‘s German publication Sport Auto has the time we ‘ve been waiting for. Yes the GTS has finally been timed on the ring by the magazine that is famous for measuring all cars on the famed 14 mile track. The time is the lowest ever recorded by a factory BMW: 7:48. However it ‘s only a scant 2 seconds faster than the 7 year old M3 CSL. And keep in mind the CSL cost substantially less than the $170k GTS.
But as our friend Axle points out, this time is a full 17 seconds faster than the standard E92 M3 on tires that aren ‘t as aggressive as the cup tires on the CSL.
