GT63 s is much faster than M5 on pretty much every track. It's just much better car.

That is a pretty good gap beetwin this and M5

M5 on normal tires, GT63 on cup tires.

That is impressive for the M5, which is 60k less expensive AND more practical, and more plush to ride in.
Tracker 1y ago @latvietis96
Both are on Pilot Sport 4S

Yeah, I think they specifically mark the Cup tyre laps in their lists. Club circuit time is on Cup 2 (semi slicks). GP lap apparently not.
There are other factors which can account for the large difference between this and M5 time - maybe weather was worse for BMW, maybe it just wasn't a good lap for the driver.
And who knows - maybe they had a very lively example of AMG (more power than advertised) and dead example of M5 (less than advertised) :D

Yeah the only M5 vs GT63S head to head test on equal tires/equal conditions/same driver proved that the M5 is slightly quicker around track.
Tracker 1y ago @FastestLaps
Or maybe none of that? Although tests were done on different days, tyres and the driver are same...
Cocobe 1y ago @FastestLaps
honestly, even if the same tire type, the GT63s has much wider tires to begin with. It's always going to have more raw mechanical grip, at the expense of steering feel and what not. I always expected the GT63 to be a proper chassis that handled better, but in reality it's just a stiffened E63s with fatter tires.
