The BMW M135i has managed to lap the Nordschleife in 8 minutes and 5 seconds, becoming quicker than a lot of expensive and powerful cars.
The German based automaker didn’t bring the new M135i to the Nordschleife officially and the model was done by amateur driver Pavel Janda from autoforum.cz. The lap was done in a stock car fitted with a six-speed manual transmission and the model was riding on Michelin Pilot SuperSport tires. The BMW M135i in this configuration and with an amateur driver behind the wheel has managed to lap the Nordschleife in just 8 minutes and 5 seconds, becoming faster than the C63 AMG, the Cayman S, the M5 E60 and the Z4 M Coupe.
As a quick reminder, the BMW M135i is powered by a six-cylinder 3.0 liter engine, which is producing a total output of 315 HP (235 kW) and 450 Nm of torque (332 lb-ft). The model can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.9 seconds, before reaching its electronically limited top speed of 255 km/h (155 mph). The M135i is the first model in the 1-Series to get the “M” badges on its body and it’s available with an aero kit, with the xDrive AWD system and in two body styles, three-door and five-door.
