The BS looks like the cheap Australian Holden Special Vehicle .. "look at me" type styling with boy-racer looks. BMW's undertstated looks keep very much with the orginal design of the M3 without diluting.

As mentioned before it sounds crap like a "tin of nails".

Never been a fan of Mercs but I love this car! If I chop in my RR sport and M3 and throw a few quid at it I can afford it.............

Although it looks very OTT I think in black you would still be able to park it at the shops and not worry about it too much unlike an R8 for example.

The Mercedes weak ass intake manifold and those cheap looking rims that car looks like a half assed version of a replica want to be or a car playing catch up. , I'm going to have to lean towards proportion proposing proportion . You can just tell BMW takes it way more serious just by the way the car sits and grips the floor. That's why they are #3 brand

The base price for the gt3-rs is $135K. That's $40K more than what the MB is expected to be. Even the regular gt3 is like $20K more.

To me the BS is a bit flashy over-the-top, so I guess the GTS, except for the orange. Sound you could really take either, to me the benz is a little too rough sounding. Agree with the GT3 RS comments.

The merc would be my choice. no question. looks better, more modern, and is better equipped for every day driving IMO. The C63 engine also sounds amazingly better than the M3, this one will sound even better.

Coming from a family who owns a Mercedes dealership, all I can say is I can't wait till we get one of these in! The C63 is a beast, and while it doesn't outhandle the m3 by a longshot, it's still a fun car to drive. Im looking more forward to driving one of the coupes when we get them, and well this...this I will at least sit in an rev

Both look sexy but for $130k euros I'd rather have a e92 m3 for the track and a c63 to daily drive.

The BS in white in the teaser pic looked awesome so clean so aggressive, but I would only look at it never get one. the only mercs worth buying are S-class very nice ride good power cruiser. c-class are built so limsey they not a drivers car by any means. GT3-RS the only car I would take over my M

M3 all the damn way!!

Wow to both cars. Aesthetics, I'm loving the Merc. Red and white version. The race inspired steering wheels has got me drooling all over my keyboard.

I have to agree, not too nice at all. I do like the 2012 SLK front much better

You are reading my post incorrectly. Both of these cars cost as much (and then some) as the gt3 3.8 (let's not drag the 4.0 into this discussion), yet, they barely beat out the carrera s on track times.

I wish MB would put their AMGs in the American LeMans circuit. Sick of Porsche and Corvette being the only contenders to BMW.
