    Re: New M4 GTS Announced

    The development laptime for the 918 in my post was well over 7 minutes, so maybe the standing start had something to do with the specific limitations of the 918's hybrid system as they were perfecting it or something?

    Re: New M4 GTS Announced

    Gosh - this Camaro is a great looking car. And it looks like it is very emotional. 

    Also - it is interesting that they even liked that Camaro better than the M4 - cool!


    Re: New M4 GTS Announced

    The ZL1 version has 640hp and 640ft lbs of torque, carbon brakes and a optional close ratio 10 spd automatic. US msrp est below a M4.  Will be released very soon.

    Not a big fan of supercharged motors.  What are you expecting for next Z28?

    Re: New M4 GTS Announced

    Superchargers work well on v8s and  don't have the uber Underhood  heat issues that turbochargers can have. No idea what z28  output will be. Could even be the same but as usual large amounts of noise insulation gone, only 1speaker and light weight seats etc..might weigh a little less but will have different suspension bits and set up specs.  

    Don't be shocked if eventually there is a awd zl1 made at some point. That one will be devastatingly quick.

    Same lap time as 650S seems pretty crazy.  Will be interested to see Nordschleife time...

    Very good for any car, really.


    Re: New M4 GTS Announced

    Maybe it's just a favorable track, but that lap time seems crazy good for an M4 GTS.


    Re: New M4 GTS Announced

    GT3RS slower than GT3


    Re: New M4 GTS Announced

    +1 that alone makes the whole Chart questionable yes


    Re: New M4 GTS Announced

    And what about these 3 tracks ?

    GT3 vs GT3 RS

    Bilster Berg - 1:45.79 vs 1:47.00

    RS has clearly more front grip and turn in - same day same conditions same tire (brand) it's faster

    Very impressive - that driver makes the car look very easy to handle (makes it seem like an 8 min lap would be very relaxed).  Nice narration for the track too...

    Re: New M4 GTS Announced

    The RS is known to be slower on tracks with longer straights, but that's the price of adding extra spoilers and having twice the downforce.
