noone knows? noone cares? come on guys...our cars were designed for the turns....all anyone mentions on here anymore is 1/4 mile....this is a great question, and it seems like any one of those cars could have the lower time.

8:22 --- BMW M3 (E46) (12/2000)
8:26 --- Mercedes Benz SLK 32 AMG (05/2001)

Closest I can find.

That's a fairly impossible test, as each one would be done months apart, under different weather conditions with different drivers. Hell, you could get a 20 second time split with two identical cars!

Closest I can find.I vaguely recall seeing these posted somewhere, too.

But, next time, give us more than 65 minutes to come up with the info. :thepan:

Those times are pitiful, I have driven the 'Ring' and in one month I put ten different cars under 5:10.000.

Disclosure: Times were done on GT4

I've got an excel file with about 100 or so 'ring times on it. How dorky is that?

Can't suppose what the track order would be. But there are straight line acceleration figures available. The fastest (overall # in auto history) in order:

1. 2006 M5 (V-10) #66
2. 2005 CTS-V #85
3. 2005 C55 AMG #106
4. 2002 M3 #109
5. 2003 C32 AMG #115

Different shocks were used on the V, the C6 & the Z06 when the times we posted. Those shocks are not available to the public. Times will be off not matter what.

I work out by Sunrise, across from Sawgrass Mills. I live in Coral Springs. I will be at Vera Cadillac in Pembroke Pines a lot over the next two weeks, my C6 is getting a ProCharger. I have been to Tower Shops on a few Friday nights-there are usually a couple hundred cars gathered. If we can get enough Forum members to commit to a meet, I will be there. By the way, I presume you want to see the 'Black Beast', as the 'Silver Bullet' is just a beater.
