That's impressive for the CLA45, but then the V8 M3 is at the end if its life now. Let's see what the new one can do. I'll bet that both it and next AMG C Class sedan are comfortably under the eight minute mark. The question is, which of those two will have the better time. I would not bet against the lighter, less powerful M3.
