M3 GTS vs Viper ACR

So what do you guys think? Which will win, both are priced similarily. Both are road legal track cars. Both have 2 seats only.

It is about the M3 GTS and not standard M3. HUGE difference there.

So the general consensus is the Viper will win. I am surprised no one has any opposing opinions.

I would say the ACR would take the GTS. However, we still don't know what the GTS is capable of.

Thing is, we don't know.

The supposed Ring time for the GTS is close to the time of the previous GT2, which had more power, torque and grip and less weight.

I wonder what the Ring time is for the ACR.

I think the ACR ring time is an unofficial 7:22

...and since the supposed unofficial time for the GTS is 7:35 I believe, that answers that.
