911 GT3 RS vs M3 CS Drag Race [Carwow]

Porsche vs BMW letís gooo!

Weíve got our hands on the almighty, all-new Porsche 911 GT3 RS, and itís 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, letís take a closer look at the stats. Starting with the Porsche, itís 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, itís super light, weighing in at just 1,450kg!

But all this power & performance doesnít come cheap, with the GT3 RS starting from £190,000! Whatís 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. Itís a fair bit cheaper, though, costing around £116,000.

So the BMW has more power, but will the weight prove decisive? Thereís only one way to find outÖ LETíS RACE!

911 GT3 RS vs M3 CS Drag Race - CarWow



Is it just me? I find this pretty impressive. Yes, the best cars aren't necessarily the fastest in a straight line, but given the significant price delta and the typical use case for most of us (not on a track), the M3 does quite well. I'd like to see how a non-CS M3x does against the GT3RS as I think the price delta there will really make even more sense versus the performance delta.

these 1 dimensional drag races are mirroring the dumbing down of car culture.

I was just about to post a similar thing lol. I fast forwarded to the actual content, and then sat and asked who would actually drag race these two cars? If it were a turbo S then I could maybe understand that but I guess itís for the views these days.

It is what it is - entertainment - and fun to watch. By the way, if you had a CS and your best buddy had an RS you wouldn't do a fun run? I'm a track guy who finds drag racing boring but don't see anything wrong with this content.

When are these guys gonna do the "obvious" and extremely useful comparo and pit the CS against an unladen Peterbilt 579 (peak torque = 2,050 ft-lb)?

They are getting to be a bit obtuse. Must work at driving traffic to their site. Either that or they just live off the money Youtube pays them.

GT3RS AWD would be nuts. Likewise, imagine if BMW could make a 3500 lb M car instead of 3900.

So everyone bashing these videos would rather they not exist and carwow not exist?

Doesnít matter if you like the content or not, people like him have changed the car industry for the better (for us buyers), if they need to do these for $$$ or for the fun of it, I am all for it.

They have a formula that works and has been very successful for them hence the views they get.

I was there that day with our M4 CSL so expect to see that against that M3 CS very soon!

To me quick is quick. As long as your vehicle has the amount of output to give you smiles per gallon (or charge) that's all that really matters.

Not sure what youíre on about. 29 years is a long time. A 335 hp rated B58 and a ZF8 in that chassis would lop a good second off the similarly powered S54.
