Post Sport Auto: 1M vs M135i on Hockenheim performance results

But keep in mind the M135i has Michelin Pilot Super Sports tires which are better rated even than the 1M's Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires.

Yep.
The 1M is proven faster.
However the impressive thing about the M135 is that it cost $10k less than the 1M while being able to achieve similar performance.

I would call this just as much of a win for the M135....

Those numbers are very close. Considering the price gap, the fact that it wasn't too easy to get a 1M, and the more functional M135, I give the M135 a lot of credit.

1M has PS2 and M135 has PSS...
My 2011 M3 came with PS2 and now it has PSS. Believe me, The gap between those tires is really amazing. BTW the M135 is quick despit it's an ugly car.

Seems that what we said about the 1M and M3....

But between the 1M and M135, if these cars are so close in performance it amazes me that a month ago a driver took the M135 to Nordschleife and drove 8:05 BtG on a wet track and the official 1M time with it's pro driver took 8:14 on a dry track? Did the 1M drive a different route or was the M135 so much better or was the M135 driver so much better?

Seriously impressive. The difference between the 1M and the M135i are much smaller than I thought. It is almost enough to make up for the sound debacle.

This really makes me wonder what the M2 will be like. That shit will be crazy.

I guess it's a different route. The 8:14 is probably a complete lap.
