It is always nice to see two German supercars going at it on their home track. The driver in this upload is known as “//”, and his weapon of choice has been prepped by Manthey-Racing. The opponent is the official ‘Ring Taxi driven by a professional racer. Hang on, because you are about to see a Mercedes-AMG GT R vs Porsche GT3 RS at the ‘Ring.
Representing Stuttgart, the camera car is a 911 GT3 RS. It has a 4.0L flat-six making 520 horsepower/346 lb-ft of torque. The opponent from Affalterbach is also powered by a 4.0L engine, except it is a V8 with twin turbos. It sends 577 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels.
The difference is that the torque is available in almost any situation. Meanwhile the Porsche needs to stay at high rpm to put power down. Nevertheless, the Porsche has more grip and a 500 lb weight advantage. Is this a fair fight? Tell us in the comments below and stay with us for more Nürburgring action.
