True. But still not as impressive as the times set by this “bone stock” Civic Type R:

Alfa's have Autopilot? Do they actively seek freeway barriers to crash into as well?

Didn't you hear, FK8 CTR did a 7:43.8!!
*Pre production (probably high boost), sticky tires, "floating" roll cage, no rear seats

Renders all German cars pointless!

I said this in the other thread about the same Hockenheim track times of M2 vs M2c. People started talking about how slight disadvantage of track temperature bla bla blah...

It's all about the driver.

The M2c is down about 100 HP against these GT3s (most likely PDK) and look what the driver can achieve even with manual transmission which is definitely slower on track than DCT.

Except the BMW is once again more than useful when the Alfa is in for another unexpected service.

The M2 driver was very good. Though realize particularly with a car like a gt3(RS) due to resale value, a lot of owners go to the track just to open up, they realize hard track use is hard on a car. Even thought the GT3 is the bottom of the super car entry some owners thrash on track and some owners daily drive and go to the track for some speed and fun but not race.
