Now, here I am. Just cruisin the internet checking the sites.
I decide to check out some pontiacs, you know... the worse type of
insult to a bmw. Then, as I stumbled apon the grand prix, I found
something even more astonishing The Dammit thing beat the
Bmw 330i!! Here it is...

Beating Audi,
Jaguar and BMW Grand Prix GTP Comp G Bested the Audi A6 and Jaguar S-Type
In addition to beating its own class of 17 cars, the GTP with Comp G was further compared against three cars that many consider to be the "gold standard" of performance: the Audi A6 3.0, the Jaguar S-Type, and the BMW 330i. "Gold Standard" Results were calculated, taking the original 17 cars within the test and adding those three. Grand Prix outperformed the Audi A6 3.0 in every test and the Jaguar S-Type 3.0 in 4 out of 5 performance and handling tests (tying the fifth).

Based on Grand Prix GTP with Competition Group Package vs. comparably equipped 2003 Audi A6 and Jaguar S-Type. Level of equipment varies. Testing performed by Pro Formance and sanctioned by SCCA.

Grand Prix GTP Comp G Bested BMW 330i in Two Key Tests
The GTP Comp G defeated the BMW 330i in composite road course time and acceleration. In calculated points, the differences between the overall winner, BMW 330i and the Grand Prix GTP were small, 4,791 points to 4,737. The next competitor in third place was the Audi A6 at 4,248 points.
