If he hadn't drifted some of those corners, I think this would have been a 1:53 lap easily.

Not sure if we are gonna see a M5 CS. German dealers say a Final Edition maybe. But I would buy a CS - in Maledives Blue metallic like my F80😁

Totally.
But you gotta understand, they shoot these videos for views.
Car drifts = more views = more money

Never heard of video stabilization, I suppose.

Got nauseous twice while watching his helmet go all over the place like a dashboard bobblehead.

Only .2 seconds behind a 991 GTS driven by the same driver. That's insane for a 2 ton beast.

This car continues to impress. It is one of the best M cars I have ever owned and is good enough to warrant me to get in LCI over the M8GC.

Is it just me or is that dashbord not cool at all?

Looks like a 2018 Peugeot......

2020+ owners should start a petition or some other campaign demanding the M5 receive the M8 Live cockpit graphics, at a minimum.

Really hope the LCI gets the M8 live cockpit.

Have you driven a 19? Because I just spent the last week in one, and trust me the active sound is the last thing you notice when wringing the neck of this car. It's a monster in all the right ways.

Such an insignificant thing to complain about.

Wonder how the Gran Coupe will fare with its weight penalty over the coupe (is it even heavier than the M5?) but the M8 lap time was over a second faster at 1:53.1.

That' what I don't get... heavier, same Engine... thus it must be the chassis... lower point of gravity... (carbon core)... the stance, rubber... I have no other explanation.

M8 has a shorter wheelbase than the M5, then the M8 is longer than the M5. A 3 way comparison would be quite interesting
