In order for that to count in this argument Sport Auto would have to test the newer M3 ZCP to go up against the AMG's updated suspension and extra power/torque coming from the motor. Could the ZCP make up 4-seconds? Honestly, I think the E92 M3 originally tested wasn't really that slow (8:05). I think that it should have been more like 8:01-8:03. I've heard some people taking their stock M3s to the Nürburgring and achieving similar times in the low 8-minute range.
