AutoGuide.com has a little shameless behaviour in the past
BMW M5 Unofficially Crowned World's Fastest Sedan With 7:55 Nurburgring Lap Time



Quote:
With a BMW factory driver behind the wheel of BMW's new M5, the luxury sedan has reportedly turned in a lap time of 7:55 around the famed Nurburgring. This makes it the world's fastest sedan, ahead of Porsche's Panamera Turbo (7:56) and Cadillac's CTS-V (7:59), and puts it on par of other supercars such as Ferrari's F430 and is even one second quicker than Porsche's 996 Turbo.

Powered by a 4.4L V8 twin turbo engine, this accomplishment proves BMW's M-models have hardly skipped a beat against the competition. It will be interesting to see how BMW's competitors respond with their next-generation sedans, but it clearly proves that the Germany automaker's devotion to twin turbo powerplants is paying off.

A word of caution; the time is in no way an official BMW number and we can't verify the validity of the source (FastestLaps.com). It's almost not necessary, however, with the new M5 almost certain to run a solid sub-eight minute lap around the Ring.
