The German BMW M5 is defeating records as well. The 2012 model managed a 7 minutes and 55 seconds Nurburgring lap time.
The information was not yet confirmed so we don't know for sure what happened. But if it did, it means that the model is only a fraction slower than the supercar Ferrari F430.
The new 2012 BMW M5 is the 70th fastest production car in the world according to the 7:55 Nordschleife lap time.
The model has a 4.4-liter twin turbocharged V8 engine that is capable of delivering 560 horsepower and 680 Nm of torque.
It also has a 7-speed M Double Clutch Transmission with Drivelogic.
Previous rumors saying that the car will be equipped with all-wheel-drive and a manual gearbox were just false information.
