Yes I recall the older 335i was a coupe, a bit lighter and lower CoG. Plus early 335s were producing well over rated HP.
A note on the ZL1, VIR favors big HP over handling even with the grand course, but it helps for a car to have both.
Also I felt the M5 took some laps to gain ultimate speeds unlike the E92 M3 you can go fast in immediately.
