E92 M3 mixing with 997 Turbo and Nissan GT-R

I don't think the M3 is in the same league performance wise, but really interested to find out how it fares in part 2 of the video.

That's a fantastic video. To say I'm looking forward to the second half would be an understatement.

Well seeing as at the end of the video it shows the front cover of the next magazine due out on the 27th Feb, and on the cover it says "Nissan crushes the Germans", I think it's pretty obvious what the outcome will be. Besides, you don't have to be a brain surgeon to realise what the outcome will be anyway.

1/2 the fun is seeing it and living in the moment of victory.

The M3 was the best looking car there! The Porsche was as boring as ever and the Nissan GT-R is quick but the styling is off. The front doesn't go with the rear at all.

GTR very sick, unfortunately the front makes it look like a dog, and that roofline, yuck!. BUT man can it move. Itll be interesting what demographic will be driving this car. For this money most of the enthusiast will be into either an M3, C63, or Cayman S, maybe even a used P car.

Thanks for the link.

It's sad that the M3 was relegated to sponge duty. Am I crazy to think it could have put up a competitive time? Also, did the GT-R gain any advantage by running on a track with a fresh layer of tire rubber on it?
