That's eight minutes and one second by sport auto in a C63 coupe.
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.
