BS. AMG was tested on Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres. Those are GRIPPIER tyres than P Zero. So you are so tremendously wrong the likes of which the world has never seen.

Ha you did notice that air temp was 7 degrees yes which means that the likely density altitude was well below sea level. Therefore it was producing even more power than the absolute bullshit BMW tells you it has. So looking at the facts it's actually possible to run that time. In warmer conditions with DA above sea level it can't run a 10.8...FACT!!!!!!!!!!

Cooler temps help, of course. All the fastest 0-100 times for M5 Comp were recorded in winter/spring. And slowest ones are from summer/autumn 2019.

Probably coincidence but there is some effect to that.

I speak from experience and i can guarantee you that the M5 Comp in those conditions is producing approx 700hp hence the 10.8 1/4 mile. Let's use the 720S as an example, in cool, below sea level air it has run 9.8 sec yet if the DA is 600 metres above sea level in 28 degree heat it struggles to run 10.2. What's more with wheelspin it only manages a 10.5 so weather conditions can play a big role in elapsed times...
