A new review is taking the Porsche 911 GT3 and the Ferrari 458 Speciale together in order to find out which one is better.
Fifth Gear has put together two of the hottest supercars of the moment, the Ferrari 458 Speciale and the Porsche 911 GT3. And in order to make it complete, Chris Harris is behind the wheel of the German vehicle. This is nothing more than a track battle which is trying to find out which is faster between the two so, petrol heads, scroll down and click the play button in order to see the two models in action.
The Porsche 911 GT3 is making use of a 3.8 liter boxer engine, which is capable of putting down a total of 475 HP (349 kW) and a peak torque of 438 Nm (324 lb-ft). Power is being sent to the wheels through a 7-speed dual clutch transmission, which is allowing the model to reach 100 km/h (62 mph) from a standstill in 3.5 seconds and to go up to a top speed of 315 km/h (195 mph). The Ferrari 458 Speciale on the other hand has a 4.5 liter naturally aspirated V8 engine under its hood. This is rated at 605 HP (445 kW) and 540 Nm (398 lb-ft) of torque, enough for a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint made in 3 seconds. This is the successor of the 360 Challenge and F430 Scuderia and it is the range-topping model of the 458 Italia.
