That's driver, not car. GT350 Ring lap time is 7:32. M2C does is in 7:52 for comparison. 20s in no joke with a professional behind the wheel.

I've been to the ring for the first time this year in my M2 and I'm sitting at 8:38. Also because of need for more driver mod, not because lack of capability from the car. My goal for next year and perhaps the year after is 7:55. I was being quite cautious my first time out. That place is the most amazing circuit I've been on. Ever. Also it's scary as fcuk if I'm honest. Next year I'll be on full time attack though. I have a life goal to achieve.

I really like the GT350, and even cross shopped it with my M2C. But at the end of the day, to a normal person, it's just a Mustang. I'd rather be caught driving an 'orange BMW' than a 'Mustang' 10 days out of the week.
Does the Voodoo eat oil? Sure! But a few quarts of oil are still cheaper than a spun crank hub

And you're right. You wouldn't be caught it a Mustang. But a Mustang will catch you in the M2C. Just look at the 'Ring lap times above.
