    The more I read about the GT350R the more enticing it becomes. Now, the Stingray is lighter and arguably sexier but the GT350R just has that special something. The flat-plane crank, the high revving V8, the carbon fiber wheels, the track focus, etc., it's like a better M3. Not to mention it is manual only making it a true driver's car as if the options to delete things like the navigation, AC, and rear seats didn't already tell you that. I'm in love with both of these cars:

    Motor Trend compars BMW M3 vs. Cadillac ATS-V Sedan vs. Mercedes-AMG C63 S ATS-V really shines in just about every performance measure. C63S takes home the win due to overall package, ATS-V lacking in refinement. BMW M3 takes third, but by no means does Motor Trend say it is a terrible car. The segment is just full of very capable machines. 3rd Place: BMW M3 It's cliché to say, but this is the best third-place finisher in Motor Trend history. C'est la vie. 2nd Place: Cadillac ATS-V
 This stud athlete is let down by its lack of powertrain refinement and sonic thrills. Cadillac has very little tweaking to do to get things right. 1st Place: Mercedes-Benz C63 S AMG 
 An iron fist in a velvet glove. Race mode transforms the beast into an iron fist in an iron glove. Lap times: Caddy ATS-V 1:31.43 C63 1:31.52 BMW M3 1:32.51 Link to full article and more performance data: http://www.motortrend.com/roadtests/sedans/1507_bmw_m3_vs_cadillac_ats_v_sedan_vs_mercedes_amg_c63_s_comparison/viewall.html

    Very impressive Stage 2 M178 tuning numbers here from Renntech. As you may recall, Renntech started work on the M178 motor early this year. They showed a baseline of 531 crank horsepower and 472 wheel horsepower. They have the AMG GT S with their turbo upgrade and downpipes up to 682 crank horsepower or 625 at the wheels on their dyno now. Those are some major gains. Torque alone is up by 167 lb-ft over stock. What is also nice to see is how flat the M178 torque curve is once the motor spools and how the torque curve does not really start to drop hard until past 6500 rpm. The M178 in general is definitely breathing better up top than the M177 in the C63 especially this example. Renntech previously shared an acceleration video of their intermediate tuned AMG GT S running up to 195 miles per hour and this time they take it to 199 miles per hour with the Stage 2 setup. The car accelerates hard with the Stage 2 package and the gearshifts look to be about instant. They get to 198 miles per hour in no time. It's incredible how easily the car gets there and with no drama whatsoever. This car is fast. It will be interesting to see how much further Renntech takes it on the turbo upgrade with race gas but for now they obviously are not pushing the transmission beyond its limits.

    If this picture offends you then you somehow wandered onto the wrong website. Our regular readers will understand and even identify with this. Go ahead and laugh.
