Notice that various parameters, such as the wheel alignment, means that the driver doesn't have to fight the oversteer throughout the lap. While a comparison involving the stock car would obviously be too much of a stretch, we'll still mention that the standard E36 M3 needs 8:35 to go round the Ring.
In fact, here's Alex, the guy manhandling the Bimmer, describing the experience:
"Yesterday I was able to improve my laptime to 7:25,3 min BTG [Bridge To Gantry]. We changed the setup a little bit and now I become more and more familiar with the car. I have to fix the broken "VANOS" the next days, hopefully the engine will be a bit more powerful then..."
Given the pace of the BMW M3, we won't hold anything against you in case you expect the VANOS part to be a piece of Nurburgring humor.
Speaking of Nordschleife amusement, we can't wait to see this guy hunting down supercars, which will bring us the first opportunity to bring you an example of what we call a rear-paw Ring Wolf.
