Motortrend did a bit of a comparision and for anyone still wondering how good of a track car the 135 is take a look.

The answer? Not good. 10 seconds on a little over a 2 mile course is embarrasing. Not that the 135 is slow but the EVO is otherworldly.

The one thing i also don't agree with is who they compare to the 135. Car magazine are comparing base prices but nearly every real world car is about 3-5k cheaper than a similarly equipped 135. I think lots of people will cross shop the G37 vs the 135 since they are very close in price and power yet Motortrend dismissed that comparison.

anyway, it is an interesting read and the BMW bias is apparent since they chose the slower, 8k more expensive car.
Is the 135 sold as a track car? Who knew? Personally I would go for a 318.
