+ 1. There was some awful driving going on; barely an apex clipped, wide, messy and the 458 looked like it was at about 7/10ths. This doesn't represent the real test. Check out Nurburgring times... 7:28 v 7:55. Both quick, but this is a better representation of the relative performance of the cars; which is as you would expect - mid engined two seater super car v brilliant four door luxury sedan. I will take one of each please

I think the point was that this is a tuned M5, so we don't know the 'ring time.

The guy driving the 458 Italia is not necessarily the most talented guy on the planet but definitely an expert. So is the case with the M5 driver. For that reason, I'm sure he's pushing the hell out of that Italia, the reason why the engine has reached the limit before blowing up and spitting its content on the track.

M5 rules.

30 sec ring time improvement. Perhaps, but unlikely. Who cares anyway, both good cars but different tools for different jobs

I guess my point was it wouldn't be as fast as the 458, but faster than indicated. Isn't anything under 8:00 considered exceptional?

No matter how excited the BMW guys are to see this video, I can personally attest to the fact that the 458 is the most incredible car I've ever driven. I truly love my M3 and currently use it as my daily driver, but to be honest, nothing compares to the visceral feeling, acceleration, soul and sound of the 458. Is it worth $300k? Is it the fastest car out there? Is it the best looking? Who knows?

For those of you that have not spent real seat time behind the wheel of a 458, your missing an incredible experience no matter what car you've driven. Even my buddy who owns an Aventador loves switching cars to experience the difference between the 2 cars.

PS: Can't wait for my new M5 to arrive.
Hey brother do you live on the lake in Westlake? My girlfriend works with Richie Sambora and when we go over there I see a 458 and an e90 parked next to each other. You live in that area?
If so next time you see a matte black e64 say hello my name is Ameer. Hope to see you around brother.
Oh and if something doesn't work out with that '13 M5 I think they have a white one over at steve thomas BMW.
See ya around =)

Yes, I live in Westlake. The complex is called North Pointe. Not sure if it's my cars you've seen. My M3 is white and my 458 is Grey. Would be happy to hook up. Also, took delivery of the M5 yesterday.

So what does that say about GTR time of 7:24?

No disrespect to this thread, but if that car was tuned to 640hp and 780tq, why arent any of the forum guys jumping all over this. I think all of us are waiting for proof of a company that has worked out the kinks in the ecu that we will buy from.
