BMW unveiled the M135i back in May, but since then it did not provide any details on the car’s performance numbers around the famous Nordschleife track. Since Bimmer decided to withhold this info, the guys over Autoforum.cz took a test of their own and obtained a pretty impressive result. The M135i posted a lap time of 8:05, making it faster than models like Porsche Cayman S or Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG . Keep in mind that behind the wheel was not a professional driver, but don’t they all use pros in this testing phase.
For those of you who do not remember, the M135i is powered by a 3.0-liter in-line six-cylinder engine with M Performance TwinPower Turbo technology that delivers a total of 320 horsepower at 5,800 rpm and 331 pound-feet of torque that is available between 1,300 and 4,500 rpm. The model will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 5.1 seconds and hit a top speed of 155 mph.
