Officially Sick: M3 GTR 8:19 Ring Lap /w Hans Stuck driving and commenting

Check it out. BMW put it up.

In the video Hans Stuck drives the E46 M3 GTR which has our engine (4L V8) around the Nurburgring, so if we take a few hundred pounds off, we can do this!

Wow I have that video saved on my old computer,but not with the Hans Stuck commentary.That is freaking great!

You do realize that this is the old E46 M3 GTR not the E92?

This is also not the same configuration that the manufactures times are based on as it also utilizes a piece of the modern Grand Prix circuit.

You can download it from the BMW site in different formats (with the commentary) in case you want to keep a copy...

Yes, I know it is the E46 chassis, but it does have the 4L V8. My understanding is that engine influenced the development of the S65, but I don't know the details.

I noticed that it is not the curcuit that is being used by manufacturers these days, but I need to pull out a map to see which part of the GP curcuit was actually a part of this time run exactly. (And as a tribute, I'll turn on my PS2 and play F1 on the GP curcuit right now!)

My favorite comment is when he starts talking about how the car could use 1000hp going up the hill.

May I add my thanks for posting this. It has been a while since I have seen it.

This video has been around for a while, but I love it none the less. It’s great that he added the commentary, as I had not seen this rendition.

I believe that the engine was specific to the GTR ONLY , It was a sealed engine from BMW Motorsport none of the teams were allowed to open the engines and the engines were only leased to the teams that BMW Motorsport supported.

Didn't Porche go to war and have the car disqualified from racing? Seems like I recall something like that.

Their first appeal resulted in BMW selling just a small batch of cars with the engine to "private" owners. I think their appeal for the next season resulted in a requirement of substantially more production units to be sold, at which point BMW pulled out.

Good info. I was wondering how BMW was able to continue to race since the car was a one off.
Porche cried bit they did a similar stunt with their GT1, which also won a ton of races but was never really available for sale. Classic pot calling the kettle black.

Great video, but that is not "our" engine. It's a racing engine.

That was a joke. Production engines are not simply dropped into race cars like the GTR. See post #3. My understanding is that the GTR engine influenced the development of the S65 though.
