Porsche 997 GT3 RS 4.0 versus Nissan GT-R two roll on races
The Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 is no slouch. The 4.0 liter flat-6 puts out an absolutely incredible 457 wheel horsepower stock
and does so naturally aspirated as in no forced induction. The Nissan GTR of course having two turbos on its 3.8 liter V6. On paper with the GT3 RS 4.0's weight advantage of just over 800 pounds should make this an interesting race despite the torque advantage of the GTR as well as its quick shifting dual clutch transmission.
So why does the GT3 get pulled fairly easily? Well this takes place in the wet. The RS 4.0 R-compound tires don't help when it is raining and it does not have all wheel drive like the GTR. Additionally, the GTR is modded and said to be de-catted with a mid-pipe but did the owner really just stop there? No tune for the cat delete? Hard to believe with how it pulls up top even in the second race where the GT3 RS 4.0 gets a better start.
Regardless, the GT3 loses and come to your own conclusion as to why:
