Porsche vs BMW let's gooo!
We've got our hands on the almighty, brand new Porsche 911 GT3 RS, and it's going up against one of the most hardcore BMWs money can purchase – the brand new BMW M3 CS! The concern is, does this track-focused Porsche have what it takes to reduce the BMW?
Well, let's take a more detailed take a look at the statistics. Beginning with the Porsche, it's powered by a 4-litre naturally-aspirated flat-six that can produce 525hp and 465Nm of torque. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a 7-speed automated gearbox, and being a track-focused automobile, it's incredibly light, weighing in at simply 1,450 kg!
However all this power & performance does not come cheap, with the GT3 RS beginning with ₤ 190,000! What's more, the one we have here has the Weissach Load fitted, so it costs around ₤ 235,000!
Then we have the BMW M3 CS. It has the exact same 3-litre twin-turbo straight-six as in the routine M3, but power has actually been increased to 550hp and 650Nm. This power is sent out to all 4 wheels through an 8-speed automatic transmission, and the vehicle is a reasonable bit heavier than the GT3, at 1,765 kg. It's a reasonable bit less expensive, though, costing around ₤ 116,000.
So the BMW has more power, but will the weight show decisive? There's only one way to find out … LET'S RACE!
