E92 M3 DCT might run the above close on acceleration (depends on how good the box turns out to be) but most likely will lose on track (still a softie)
E92 M3 CSL DCT would most certainly whip all vettes bar ZR1 (Z51, LS3 and Z06) on track. It would be interesting to see how it copes with the Z06 in acceleration tests.
btw here is something that would put them all to bed
sounds pretty scientific to me
but any way there are a lot of vehicles, that will out perform the vehicles in question and the GTR is just one of them. If you look on the links of the times for the ring it should show most of them.
