I am liking the new lotus. However, I am not so sure about the Toyota sourced run of the mill engine. But it seems they liked it.

They do not compare the sound of these cars against one another. Because I am assuming that the M3 would have sounded the best followed by the P car.

None the less great group of cars. I love the M3 GTS....I just wish it looked more DTM style. None the less it makes no difference as it seems sold out.

I would probably put the C63 first. The 6.2L and that exhaust is

No surprise to see the RS 4.0 won...how could it not? Its quite possibly the best car ever made. You simply cannot compare anything else in this comparo to it.

We all know the GT3 RS 4.0 is THE best car, easily, amongst this group and also sounds the best by some margin too! The M3 cannot compare to the exotic symphony of the RS 4.0! It makes the M3 by comparo seem tame and mundane...and thats having actually heard the 4.0 in person compared to even a full exhaust M3. Simply no contest.
The 4.0 is amongst the best cars ever made and thats why anything short of a 458 or McLaren has trouble competing with it and even those cant beat it in comparos.
There was a similar Evo test with the GTS and GTR and the 4.0 easily won that one too.

My boss is a part owner of a track, he has a 4.0 and a CGT and he can't stop going on about how phenomenal the 4.0 is with a big kid grin.

I'd also rank the C63 above any M3 from an acoustic perspective. They sound like sex...

I think the Porsche racing engine does it for me.

That Porsche is in a different class. It is probably the 2nd best car Porsche has ever made (1st being the CGT). M3 is probably a good alternative to the Porsche. MB is just a crazy car that wants to kill tires. GTR is too much computer.

Soooooo...Did I miss the part where they announced the winner?

I'm assuming...

1 - GT3
2 - GTS
3 - Lotus
4 - GTR
5 - C63

After being in 2, 997 GT3RS' (non 4.0) I would without a doubt choose the 4.0 over all. Also, I got rides in them on an autox course so they were driving them to the max..

GT3 RS 4.0 is so friggin' win. If there wasn't so many regulations and ratings, we would have more cars with engines found in the GT3.

M3 sounding better than the 63?

Don't think so, sorry.

EVO mag is probably the magazine out there. I wish all mags do the same reviews EVO does. The GT3 4.0 is the best car ever made.
