This is the wrong laptime, there are different configurations of Willow Springs and the TL Type-S laptime belongs on the "streets of willow springs" board (fastestlaps.com/tracks/willow-springs-streets-of-willow). Even the video clearly states they are driving "streets of willow springs".

There is a video of the TL & the GT500 doing both their laps, so it is legit.

Willow Springs is also not a power circuit.

Therr i somthing seriously wrong with that willow springs lap time.

Shelby Mustang Cobra GT500
BMW E92 M3
Ford GT
Porsche 997 911 Carrera S
Ford Mustang SVT Cobra R
Lotus Exige S240
Lexus IS350
Mazda FD3S RX7
Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX
Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X
Porsche 997 911 Turbo
Audi B7 RS4

And Is supposedly is FASTER than all those cars up there? all which are Alot more powerfull alot lighter and rwd, yet its faster than all those? No way, i say that lap time gets removed.

Same lap time as the S2000? No wonder it was discontinued. Can't believe the cars under this.
