Porsche 911 GT3 RS v BMW M3 CS: DRAG RACE

vs let's gooo!

We've got our hands on the almighty, brand new RS, and it's going up against one of the most hardcore BMWs money can purchase – the brand new ! The concern is, does this track-focused Porsche have what it takes to reduce the ?

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 . 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!

      Killing it with a BS drag race?
      The BMW driver messed up the start EVERY TIME. The dude who makes the signs started to walk away when the BMW just started.
      100% the BMW won the drag race so the result ist just wrong.
      So yes… they are Killing it 😀

      Well it didn’t do anything the base M3 with a remap wouldn’t do 😀

    Imagine if the CS actually was light like a CS should be. Incredible car

    1. ALV1N Avatar

      it can’t because that would mean it should be RWD only no Xdrive but at that point, it would murder the M4 CSL on track and that’s not what BMW wants, so they handicapped it with Xdrive to make it not as fast and light as it could be

      ​@ALV1Nis Opel Astra Touring Car suitable for Drag Race also?

    3. ALV1N Avatar

      @Purwanti Allan any car is suitable for drag race in its own category, dunno about the connection to my reply but yeah even my Golf is suitable for drag race but not against these monsters

      I think it might beat Porsche if it had same tyres and a dual clutch gearbox. GT3RS is a full track focused version, it should not have struggled. I am just thinking what if BMW made a GTR like the one for E46, that would probably break youtube car channels for few days.

    These might be 2 of the most evenly matched cars I’ve seen on carwow.👍

      in a straight line

      @mastodon That’s what I saw, on carwow.

      ​@ViralpromotionLMAO No. Its an AWD twin turbo car vs a RWD NA Track car with TONS of downforce. Nobody is buying a GT3 for drag racing. Let’s get back to reality for a second.

    5. Squeekieballs Avatar

      @Viralpromotion That’s a good point. I can’t afford either, I just enjoy motorsports. 👍

      Still the bmw weights a ton more than the Porsche so… yes really

      ​@Santiago Mesathe Porsche has more downforce than 6 M3 CS combined. Drag race isn’t exactly its forte….

    Let’s just say I’ve been binge watching Carwow drag races like I’ve never done before. Thank you keeping us glued to our screens, it’s a complete 10/10 for the content you’ve indulged us with!! Matt seems to have said DRS a lot more than he said Carwow in this drag race…he’s officially a Porsche Salesman!!

    The aesthetics of the gt3 rs is on another level. You have to see the car in person. Although it already looks sick enough on video.

    This month was a 10-10 carwow, Matt told us every vid that the following vid was a banger, didn’t disappoint

    As an F1 fan, can’t believe that little DRS actually works so well😄 Makes me happy to witness that on that Porsche

    Matt always starts first, even if you don’t call it a jump start it’s his reaction time that decides the race.
