Porsche 911 GT3 RS vs BMW M3 CS: DRAG RACE

Porsche vs BMW let’s gooo!

Matt and his team got their hands on the almighty, all-new Porsche 911 GT3 RS, and it’s going up against one of the most hardcore BMWs money can buy – the all-new BMW M3 CS! The question is, does this track-focused Porsche have what it takes to bring down the BMW?

Well, let’s take a closer look at the stats. Starting 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 via a 7-speed automatic gearbox, and being a track-focused car, it’s super light, weighing in at just 1,450kg!

But all this power & performance doesn’t come cheap, with the GT3 RS starting from £190,000! What’s more, the one we have here has the Weissach Pack fitted, so it costs around £235,000!

Then we have the BMW M3 CS. It has the same 3-litre twin-turbo straight-six as in the regular M3, but power has been increased to 550hp and 650Nm. This power is sent to all four wheels via an 8-speed automatic gearbox, and the car is a fair bit heavier than the GT3, at 1,765kg. It’s a fair bit cheaper, though, costing around £116,000.

So the BMW has more power, but will the weight prove decisive? There’s only one way to find out… LET’S RACE!
