Amg gt4 doors eats 10 seconds from m5 competition. Despite a weight heavier is the fastest sedan.

It didn't pass 100% of the track. Doesn't mean anything.

you do know one is a manufacturer lap record attempt with a full team of engineers, several sets of tires of cup2 tires and best conditions, and the other one is just a magazine with a car and driver?

The straightway top speed is not as good as the 585ps + big rear wing of AMG GT R Pro,why?

Panamera turbo is even heavier with less power and is only 2 sec slower. That's more impressive.

the 7:38 was a factory time as far as I remember, these are always quicker than the magazine times, especially for Porsche

Yup Sport Auto magazine times are always around 10sec slower than factory times.
BMW could easily achieve 7:25 with a factory test car and factory driver.
