BMW 1M Posts 8:15 Nurburgring Lap Time

German publication Sport Auto has taken BMW's 1M Coupe out to Nurburgring and has published the results alongside other track tests. Driver Horst von Saurma took the 1M to a lap time of 8:15 through Nurburgring, while hitting 1:14.1 at Hockenheim. The 8:15 is a respectable time for the 340-hp twin turbo coupe, making it seven seconds faster than the BMW E46 M3 and 10 seconds slower than the current generation M3.

To compare the 1M to its European competitors, Audi's TT RS ran the Nurburgring in 8:09 while the RS3 Sportback did the Green Hell in 8:20.

At Hockenheim however, the 1M was barely faster than the M3, which ran a 1:14.2 with a DCT gearbox. The 1M's time at Hockenheim also makes it quicker than Audi's TT RS (1:15) and RS5 (1:15.3) on the shorter track.
