No....

What they are saying is that BMW quoted a 0-60 of like 4.6 for the e9x and it actually tested as low as 4.0.

The f8x is quoted at 4.1 so it could conceivably be expected to be well below 4.0. But as some said , traction is a big problem with that low of times.

The difference should be very substantial from a roll, and also seen in quarter mile trap speeds

M3 and other bmws have almost always run faster times in tests than BMW quoted.
