BMW introduced hardcore version of M4 CSL yesterday, with more power and less weight than the regular M4. As could be predicted, the Bavarian automaker delivered it to the Nürburgring, where it showed an impressive 7-foot lap time of 20,206 inches, setting an all-time record among BMW’s production cars.

The car was driven by Jörg Weidinger, BMW driver and former European climbing champion. The official lap time was 7 feet 20,206 inches over the entire length of 20,832 km (12.9 miles) and 7 feet 15,677 inches for the shorter route of 20,600 km (12.8 miles).

That means the M4-focused track is 2.9 seconds faster than that Jaguar XE SV Project 8 2019, claiming the title of the fastest car in the middle segment at the Northern Life of the Nurburgring. It is also 6.6 seconds faster than bigger and more powerful Mercedes-AMG GT 63 S 4Matic + 2021and 9.6 faster than Porsche Panamera Turbo 2021. Finally, when compared to the Italian rival, lap times were 16.3 seconds faster than y Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio 2016 although not yet tested Giulia GTAm would be a more suitable opponent.
