Finally! I do have to say that only 3 secs quicker than base and still slower than an Alfa Guilia Q is a bit disappointing. However youíre right, the right tires will probably make a difference, but still 7:35.9 isnít bad for such a big heavy beast on everyday street tires.

a big ass bug at 106mph! a bird strike at that speed wouldíve been far uglier and likely cracked the glass as well.

Didn't someone at BMW M say the M8 could lap the Nurburgring in less than 7:27?! That's 8 seconds quicker than the M5 Competition.

The missed call, the bird and the tyres definitely added 10 seconds or so.

I look foward to the day when BMW sports cars Lap the ring better than their large sedans.

Why not? That's only 1,7% difference, the M8 Competition has a newer chassis and a lower center of gravity, weighs around the same though.

Thats a pretty disappointing time tbh.. The AMG GT63s is 10 seconds faster around the ring and 200-300 pounds HEAVIER than the m5 comp. I don't see the m8 comp being much faster. Looks like AMG has really stepped up its game.

The Alfa is in the compact segment.

Who cares about these times for an executive saloon??? Really.

It's fast and awesome car!

If one or two actually are driven on the track that would be great.

Someone who tracks cars regularly will either go with m2/3/4 comp or maybe m8(I would go with a p car instead of tracking m8)

It's important to remember that that infamous Giulia QV time is the one done by Alfa themselves and not by independent testers. There is something fishy about that time. Alfa have so far declined to lend a Giulia QV to SA/AMS for them to supertest, I wonder why...
