REV TO THE LIMIT
The new BMW M3 is an important car for me here at RevToTheLimit because it is on my shortlist for replacing my current ride, a 2013 C63 AMG with performance package. I have been waiting eagerly to see some reviews. The new M3 is always going to be one fo the most highly anticipated sports cars of the year. It just isn't that often we get a new M3.
Even though their M3 predecessors were never the fastest or most hardcore models at this level, they always set the tone with their all-round performance. According to the first reviews, the same seems to hold true for the new M3.
The general tone when watching these initial reviews is that BMW M3 is better than its predesessor in every way, shape and form....except one. Almost every reviewer says that it basically sounds like crap. Too bad because that's one of the key things that make the entire experience of owning a high performance car so fun. The new twin turbo straight six has more than enough power and torque and is also more efficient so maybe we're being a little too harsh. Still, I can't help thinking that this could be the main reason I don't buy one.
Check out the 2015 M3 Video Reviews below:
This new version of the M3 is the latest in a long line of high-performance rear-drive BMWs, but it's the first M3 with a turbocharged engine. Can it live up to the pedigree of its predecessors? Steve Sutcliffe finds out.
The historic Mid-Ohio Raceway roared to life this week with the sound of power, M Power. In an unprecedented show of force, the brand brought together every generation of M3 street and race cars and invited Justin along for the ride. Of course, he couldn't wait to get behind the wheel of the all new 2015 BMW M3 to record some of the first driving impressions on the latest evolution of a legend.
This review is in German, but is sounds great so worth sharing.
New BMW M3 on Ascari Race Track (Option Auto)
HOLY SHIT!!! See The First Ferrari LaFerrari Reviews - Maranello's New 950bhp Masterpiece Tested. It's AWESOME
Is the new LaFerrari purely a technical tour de force, or is it a real driver's car? Autocar's Steve Sutcliffe heads to Ferrari's Fiorano test track to find out.
The Aston Martin V12 Vantage S is a car that removes the smooth, silky Aston Martin veneer and shows it true self - an angry, shouty driving machine. Anis perfect if you want to tell everyone you have a gentleman's car, but are actually kind of a lunatic.
The people over at have driven it and they say it is crazy. Watch the video below to see the full review. Or you can just listen to it, that is the noise they play in heaven.
The new McLaren 650S looks like a car with lots of poise and control; it’s not a chore to drive it quickly and neither is drifting it, as Chris Harris illustrates in the video below.In the onboard footage of Harris going around the Ascari track in Spain behind the wheel of new supercar, we can see just how smoothly the car breaks traction and enters powerslides. There’s no snap, no drama but still lots and lots of sideways action.
It’s still apparent that the driver has a place in this car, and there’s no substitute for razor-sharp reflexes and advanced knowledge of car control on the limit – the wheel needs quite a bit of fine adjusting in order for progress to be smooth, though it’s clearly well past the stage of being an analog experience.
Steve Sutcliffe reviews the latest Porsche 911 GT3 and he reckons it could be the world's best sports car.
The reviews on the new-generation Porsche 911 GT3 keep dropping in with the latest video coming from UK magazine Autocar's road tester, Steve Sutcliffe, who sat behind the wheel of the most focused 991 to date during the car's European media presentation.To say that he was impressed, is an understatement, with Sutcliffe stating that it's extremely fast yet "so stable", going as far as saying that it's "the bargain of the century" at £100,000 (equal, but not comparable, to about US$152,000) and the "best car Porsche has ever made".
Since we gather some of you will be asking, the Nissan GT-R starts at £76,610 (US$117,000) in Britain.
Before we let you watch the video (that is, if you haven't done so already), we'll remind youthat the new 911 GT3 comes with a 3.8-liter naturally aspirated boxer engine rated for 469HP (475PS) with a seven-speed dual-clutch PDK transmission transferring power to the rear axle, for a 0-100km/h (62mph) sprint time of just 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 315 km/h (195 mph)
