    Some of the very justified criticisms about manufacturers' Nordschleife times is taken into account by the German car magazine "sport auto" supertest. Over the last decades, they have made this the...

    Hello? The M4 GTS video can be found on Youtube within 2 seconds. Please do some research before you write inaccurate stuff.
  3. That I don't know. Not everyone has a facility...

    That I don't know. Not everyone has a facility right there - the big ones do, of course, but not all of them. As far as I know there are no other testing sessions available, except if you test your...

    "Industry Pool" is merely the name for the prototype testing sessions that the car industry does on the Nordschleife every day of the week (Monday to Friday). It's called a pool because it's not for...
  5. It's all a bit complex, also because different...

    It's all a bit complex, also because different info was flying around immediately after the crash and when the speed limits were announced. No differentiation was made between the different users on...

    Yes.

    And sometimes quotes are not entirely correct or taken out of context. That happened here. There were a few days of uncertainty on how the 'Ring management would react, but it was shortly...
  7. Yes, I know. I live very close to the 'Ring and...

    Yes, I know. I live very close to the 'Ring and have read all about these things.

    What is says is that during races and any other activity - with the exception of the industry pool testing that...
  8. That's not correct. In certain sections speed...

    That's not correct. In certain sections speed limits were imposed and these were enforced during races and the so-called "Touristenfahrten". The industry pool testing was not impacted by these speed...

    Euro weight is 1555kg (without driver).

    "...with a clearly kernigeren sound..." lol that is funny
  11. IIRC the standard model has the 7th gear as...

    IIRC the standard model has the 7th gear as overdrive (similar to the 1st generation facelift S-tronic) whereas the Plus model uses it as a "real" gear.
  12. The normal V10 with 540hp has a different...

    The normal V10 with 540hp has a different suspension and gearing than the Plus model though, so you can't replicate the more expensive model entirely.
  13. The 991 Turbo Porkers have always been amazingly...

    The 991 Turbo Porkers have always been amazingly fast. Lighter than the R8, more torque and probably a suspension setup more suited for the smaller track.

    I do expect that at least some tech that...

    To be fair, the Porsche had road tires while the other two cars were on cup tires. It's quite amazing how quick the Huracan is, though.
  15. Can't imagine that. Astons have always been on...

    Can't imagine that. Astons have always been on the expensive side, that's also part of their branding.

    It will be better looking however. :)

    Evo also reviewed one of their cars last winter: http://www.evo.co.uk/porsche/911/16915/watch-porsche-911-re-imagined-by-singer-review

    To be fair, car magazines usually do not get to choose the configuration of the cars they test and compare. I have recently read an editorial in the German magazine "sport auto" where the journalists...

    Looks good even if I'm not a fan of the colour yellow.

    The suspension of the "regular" R8 was reviewed in the most recent issue of the German magazine "sport auto" and was found wanting compared...

    The design is gorgeous, an evolution from the current model with elements from the Bond DB10. I also like that they continued with a V12 engine - probably not for performance figures, but rather for...

    Unfortunately idiots like these exist.

    I also had a similar experience last year on the Nürburgring, where some addlebrained guy in his Audi S3 was trying to keep up with me. After he almost...
  21. G11: TBH, as much as I like V12 engines in general and...

    TBH, as much as I like V12 engines in general and BMW in particular, I don't quite see the point of this. You could achieve the same output with a lighter, more efficient and substantially less...
  22. Yes, it has. In Germany there are already...

    Yes, it has.

    In Germany there are already tuners offering the remap of the standard V10 to about 630hp (at the crank).

    For me the V10 Plus would not be worth the additional money - in...

  24. M4 GTS Nürburgring Nordschleife lap - video

    Here's the 7:28:88 lap of the M4 GTS as driven by Jörg Weidinger who is a BMW chassis engineer and Driving Experience instructor.

    Note that the speed limits that were in force this year did not...

    To be fair, there are a few ESS supercharger customers in the R8 V10 camp in other forums and they're very happy with the kit.

    I've also had my shares of problems with ESS on the 335i they tried...
