So the BMW M2 is not only making out to be the ideal driver enthusiast’s choice from Munich, it’s also turning out to be batshit-insane fast as BMWBlog reports it lapped the Nurburgring Nordschleife in just seven minutes and 58 seconds.

That’s only about a couple seconds slower (which is a lot, I know) than the Honda NSX-R or even the Chevrolet Corvette Z06 C5. But it’s still faster than the last-generation E92 BMW M3 and even the 1-Series M Coupe, which lagged the Ring in eight minutes and 12 seconds.

It’s also pretty darn close to the current-generation F10 M5, which officially completed a lap in just 7:55.

As a refresher, the M2 is a successor to the 1-Series M Coupe and it comes with a detuned version of the current BMW M3’s 3.0L TwinPower Turbo inline-six with 365hp and 343 lb-ft of torque. It comes with the choice of a six-speed manual or seven-speed M DCT dual-clutch atuomatic and when fitted with the latter, it sprints to 62 MPH in just 4.2 seconds. Top speed is capped at the typical gentleman’s agreement of 155 MPH.
