This video has a Porsche 911 997 GT3 pitted against the brand spanking new V8 equipped BMW E92 M3.
This video is so wicked awesome it doesn’t bother me the slightest that its in German. I doubt I would even pay attention to what is being said even if it was in English, French or Italian. Besides, just by watching it any auto enthousiast can sit back and just imagine which colorful descriptive words are being used to describe each vehicles beastly performance.
BMW M3 (E92)
Engine: 4.0L V8 420 hp @ 8300rpm + 295 lb-ft @ 3900rpm
0-100 km/h = 4.9 sec
0-200 km/h = 16.7 sec
80-120 km/h = 7.3 sec
Max Velocity: 250 km/h
Porsche GT3 (997)
Engine: 3.6L Flat-Six 415hp @ 7600rpm + 299lb-ft @ 5500rpm
0-100 km/h = 4.3 sec
0-200 km/h = 13.9 sec

The drifting clips are absolutely sick, notice how flat and stable both cars remain through very aggressive drifts!!
