BMW F10 M5 Now The Fastest Production Sedan Around The Nurburgring

2012 BMW M5

And then they were second! It looks as though Cadillac has lost the bragging rights to fastest lap around the Nürburgring after an “unofficial” record-breaking lap by the new BMW F10 M5. The time, you ask? A scant 7 minutes and 55 seconds to get around 13 miles of the most grueling track on the planet we call the Green Hell.

Funny, because the new M5 commercial put out by BMW doesn’t even hint that the car’s performance capabilities- just its capacity to appeal to rich businessmen with pressed slacks and Dapper Dan.

The 7:55 time is largely thanks to the deliciously powerful 560hp, twin-turbo V8 and a totally reworked M-suspension, allowing the car to handle better than the non-M version and ability to sport more M-badges than Elton John has earrings.

With that time also comes membership into the exclusive sub-eight minute Nürburgring lap club, which includes David Beckham*, Daniel Craig**, and Jocelyn Wildenstein***.
