The guys working at Autobild must have had some fun working on this piece. They took BMW's F10 M5, E60 M5, M3 GTS, M3 CRT, M3 Sedan, M3 Coupe, M3 Convertible, X6 M, X5 M,  and 1M Coupe around the Sachsenring in an attempt to discover which ones are actually the fastest. The competition hardly seems fair though, since the F10 M5 was driver by professional driver Claudia Hurtgen and the rest were all driven by journalists. Anyway, here are their results and some prices to go with these cars so you can know exactly how much fast one gets for his dollar.

  1. 1:37.30 - M3 GTS on Semi-slick tires (€115,000 or roughly $148,000)
  2. 1:38.87 - M3 CRT (€130,000 or roughly $168,000)
  3. 1:38.90 - F10 M5 driven by Claudia Hurtgen (Expect it to be around $95,000)
  4. 1:40.18 - 1M Coupe ($46,135)
  5. 1:40.52 - M3 Coupe with DCT ($59,900)
  6. 1:40.60 - M3 Sedan with DCT ($55,900)
  7. 1:42.63 - M3 Convertible with DCT ($68,550)
  8. 1:43.67 - X6 M ($90,000)
  9. 1:43.72 - X5 M ($86,900)
  10. 1:43.77 - E60 M5 ($85,700)
