If you factor in the massive differences in tires, weight and downforce it seems quite normal

3 seconds? The difference between a Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S and a Cup 2 are probably already close to ...

The ZIL almost looks like some GTA-style mashup of all those different cars.

Thank you for the additional information. 4.5 seconds 0-100 kph sounds a bit better than 9 seconds for a setup ...

Looks like a USSR-Cobra - the specs are rather unimpressive, especially the heavy weight and the output/acceleration figures.

Really fast indeed. I wonder what it would do on "normal" Cup 2-tires though. I fear it wouldn't be much ...

Impressive lap time although this was expected judging by the very radical approach Porsche has taken. The much more street-friendly ...

Ooof, barely faster than the old Z Nismo that was pretty outdated already years ago?

To be fair the Veyron wasn't faster than the 458 because of the handling. It's a massively overpowered tank with ...

Might also have been the conditions - the tested-against Focus ST lost almost three seconds to the i30 N. Edit: ...

It shouldn't be forgotten that AWD in (road) racing usually made the difference in bad conditions. Of course when the ...

Yes, the lap time of the CSL is certainly not one that seems too impressive if compared with the M4 ...

This page is called FastestLaps. Of course AWD can have its advantages depending on the use but if we strictly ...

I don't think that AWD is needed at all in this segment. This can be seen well when you look ...

Another article where you post your opinion as if it was a fact. What's the matter?

The more serious sources were "Sport Auto" and "Auto Bild: sportscars" (lap times added here) but there were also several ...

I'd be pretty suprised to see the M4 CSL keep up with a GT3 992 or GT4 RS on equal ...

That is true, although I can't remember many cars that stretched the 5% wiggle room (which if I remember correctly ...

Yes, because a performance test with two vastly different cars tells us more about the power output of a car ...

It's possible - although I've seen many German/European cars being dynoed in the German test magazine "Sport Auto" and - ...

Now I really hate people that can't just stay factual and do proper research and then try to legitimate their ...

Please elaborate. I am very much into the topic and what I state are facts that can be checked. Go ...

DIN and SAE are both official rating-standards. It is very well noted what is measured under which circumstances. Both standards ...

"The Germans rate power output at wheels for performance cars and at crank for some of their mainstream cars"; "Seeing ...

"The WRX is a much better performance car for the budget and for reliability than the STI, which actually achieves ...

Well what else should you expect on a damp road? Besides that I kinda doubt that it's worse than my ...

No, it was the standard version without CFTP-package.

The main characteristics of a muscle car originally were a big V8 that was put into an intermediate sized no-nonsense ...

Yeah no sorry after reading tests on both cars in various publications that's just not correct. Even in the German ...

The Corvette has never been a muscle car, not even in the '60s. People throw way too many cars into ...

And that would largely be due to the much more extreme tires.

The difference between base Z06 and Z06 Z07 can be very well compared to GT3 vs. GT3 RS judging from ...

Stick modern Michelin Pilot Sport Cup R on that old C6 Z06 with the Z07-package and it'll probably be at ...

Faster than an I30 N Performance as well...

After a few independent tests and lap times it's safe to say that the Nurburgring-time of this car belongs to ...

Yeah, not a fan of this. Alpina had this special vibe as it wasn't a mainstream manufacturer. Now it's BMW ...

Same driver for both cars.

The supercharged Jaguar is a heavy GT-car that isn't exactly known for great laptimes unlike the Grand Sport. It's also ...

What happened here? Very slow lap time for the car.

That is true but I actually thought that the limited and ultra expensive AWD DCT halo-M5 would just kill the ...

It also lost in a direct comparison from Hagerty Icons (Jason Cammisa and Randy Pobst).

I'm quite surprised that the M5 CS is getting beaten again by the manual Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing.

Not here in central Europe (Germany, Switzerland), it's only 3 years.

No offense but reliability is something different for me than how a car behaves in its first three years of ...

What does an ultra-rare engine in an ultra-rare car that is not even a BMW and is usually rarely driven ...

The GT-R lap time is from 2014 for an almost ancient car that cost quite a lot less, the F-Type ...

Pretty disappointing lap times so far. Expected more for the effort and price tag.
