    Inside Line takes the M3 GT2 S for a spin

    Man, talk about a gushing review Click here to enlarge

    “And as we sit at the gate of the Nordschleife, perhaps the world’s most challenging racetrack, 600 hp seems like a lot. Luckily Michelin has brought experienced race drivers to lead the way around the circuit and map out the driving line, but as we scream out onto the track and enter the series of bends at Hatzenbach, the stability-control warning light comes to life on the M3’s instrument panel. This is no token parade lap.

    The centrifugal supercharger means the power comes at the top of the V8’s power curve, not the bottom, yet the car still screams past 60 mph in less than 4.1 seconds while 125 mph supposedly unravels in less than 11.8 seconds. This is a spine-tingling car that feels like it will storm straight up to its top speed of 205 mph without stopping for breath. Perhaps a six-speed manual transmission would have been fun, but the M3’s Getrag-built seven-speed dual-clutch automated manual is the only way to truly keep pace with the car. Just a finger pull on the shift paddles brings on another gear, and the ECU takes care of the rev-matching on the downshift, which is good, because a minor mistake on the old ‘Ring can have catastrophic consequences.
