Yeah, I'd say it is an objective review.

But consider this: first off, it is in the top-10. Then realistically, as this is not a budget constrained review and all available exotic cars are factored in, did anyone realistically expect the 1///M to finish ahead of a Ferrari, Audi R8 GT, Lexus LFA, SLS, GT-R, a track-built Porsche, and a Vette with Z07 package (all on a track like Laguna). The fact that it was in the consideration (while the M3 was excluded), and finished ahead of others still is praiseworthy in my book
