Just to make sure there was no confusion on my comment. The better track time was the coupe which is lighter than the M5.
We’ll have to wait for Sport Auto to do a run with the GC...

Comparison German Sport Auto 2/2020 confirms: M5C is a beast - also when compared to new RS7 and MB GT4 (blue graph Alltag means Everyday Driving):

Now I’m an amateur at the track, though I did track my 911 ten days over the ‘19 season, from NJMSP to Lyme Rock to Watkins Glen, etc, and so I know it takes talent which I do not possess.

But that looked like a handful to control. However, that was the best view of countersteering through a slide I’ve ever seen.
