Why unofficially? Because, the BMW M135i here is completely stock along with a regular driver who isn’t a BMW certified driver or a race car driver.

The 8:05 lap time around the Nordschleife makes it faster thatn the E92 M3, the BMW 1 M Coupe, the Z4 M Coupe, E60 M5, Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG and the Porsche Cayman S.

Hit the jump for the video.

Refresher: Power for the BMW M135i comes from a 3.0 liter straight 6 with M Performance TwinPower Turbo technology that produces 320-hp at 5,800 rpm with a maximum torque of 332 lb-ft between 1,300 and 4,500 rpm. Mated to a 6-speed manual, the BMW M135i will go from 0 to 62 mph in 5.1 seconds and 4.9 seconds with an automatic.

    I really hate that BMW choose to force fed that the 1 Series is the new/old 3 series. This moves the 3 to 5 and the 5 to 7 which sadly makes the 7 rather redundant.
