Road and Track delivers an exciting and unique comparison between two BMW icons: E92 M3 and the track-focused M3 GT.
Here is an excerpt from the great review:
“With right foot firmly planted on the accelerator, Tommy Milner exits Turn 14 and uses the full width of the available tarmac to free up his M3 for a long blast down Miller’s lengthy front straight, the longest on the ALMS schedule. Without lifting, Milner upshifts via paddles at redline, the screaming 4.0-liter V-8 pushing the BMW through the thin mountain air and deep into triple digits.
At the braking point for Turn 1, the tall 22-year-old proves his worth, slowing the car at nearly 1g while simultaneously calling for two perfect-blip downshifts and steering the car on the edge of adhesion right down to the apex, setting himself up for a full-throttle exit that puts the car on just the right path for the rhythm section that follows, which is oh-so-critical to another fast lap at Miller.
Just another day in his office—the cockpit of a Rahal Letterman BMW M3 GT?
Easily could have been. But Tommy’s actually at the wheel of a production BMW M3, a Melbourne Red Metallic road car equipped with the $2500 Competition Package, the $2500 Technology Package and the $2900 M double-clutch gearbox. And best of all, I’m seated right next to him.”
