Porsche 911 GT3 RS PDK vs McLaren 675LT vs 997 GT2 Nurburgring Battle Is a Dream

The Porsche 911 GT3 RS PDK and the 997 GT2 are entirely different animals, while comparing any of them to the McLaren 675LT is extremely difficult, at least in terms of the driving experience. And while you'd be easily forgiven for letting your heart choose one of the three, there are moments in motoring life when it wouldn't quite matter which of these supercars you'd be wielding.

One such episode is shown in the piece of footage at the bottom of the page, which brings us a Nurburgring battle involving the high-octane triumvirate mentioned above.

Now, before we invite you to watch the clip and let the Green Hell action take over, there are a few things we need to mention.

First of all, the formation seen here, which is maintained throughout the lap, seems to bring just the right mix. The Woking beast, which is the fastest supercar here, was tasked with leading the team through the Touristenfahrten (Tourist Days) traffic.

The GT2, which, due to its age, is the slowest, but the most demanding machine of the three, sat in the middle. As for the 991 GT3 RS, this kept a certain distance, allowing the driver to put that 4.0-liter flat-six to good use.

Admittedly, these guys could've gone faster. Then again, pushing your top-tier supercar to the limit doesn't come as easy as playing the Nordschleife game in a hot hatch, so we'll cut the drivers some slack - the hot hatchback refference here has to do with a topic we simply adore, namely Ring Wolves.

Oh, and let's not forget the correct camera car choice - since the Rennsport Neunelfer was the only naturally aspirated velocity beast here, the selection wasn't exactly complicated. As a result, the soundtrack of this is the kind that will keep you on your toes throughout the 8-minute adventure.
