Let ‘s get the week started right. The video above features the recently released 1M doing battle with the famous M3 CSL around the track that has defined all M cars for years: the Nurburgring Nordschleife.

Sport Auto has tested both at the ‘Ring and the times are 7:50 and 8:15 respectively. But the 1M looks pretty impressive. Yes there are a lot of variables (too many to mention really) that keep a direct comparison from being valid, it ‘s hard to imagine the 1M not being close to the CSL in the right hands.
