The old body-style 1M just set an 8:15 at the Nurburgring, which is seven seconds slower than the wrong wheel-drive Ultramegane Trophy. This is a useless comparison really, but the reason for the M's lack of speed is interesting. Apparently, the driver thought that the suspension was too stiff for the Ring. Now, I know that the surface of the Rig is infamously choppy, but I think the idea of a road car's suspension being too stiff for a racetrack is laughable.
I know German car companies like to put overly-stiff suspensions in their cars, but this is a little silly.
