New 911 Turbo S Camera Car Captures BMW M8 Vs Modified GT-R Drag Race

The new Porsche 911 Turbo S is a fast car – there’s no doubt about it. We’ve seen him run on a race track and almost beat a McLaren 720S, while a previous drag race showed us he can eat the British supercar in a straight line.

In fact, the 911 Turbo is so fast, it felt like a camera car in this drag race. The battle is between a BMW M8 Competition and a Nissan GT-R covered in fancy Liberty Walk body kits. We’ve seen this build before, although this GT-R below isn’t exactly what you’d see in the video above.

The BMW M8 Competition, of course, is powered by a twin-turbo 4.4-liter V8 that develops 616 horsepower (459 kilowatts) and 553 pound-feet (750 Newton-meters) of torque. It is the heaviest of the three at 4,299 pounds (1,950 kilograms).

The Liberty Walk Nissan GT-R, which runs on semi-slicks, is powered by a modified 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 (most likely) that produces 690 hp (515 kW) and 612 lb-ft (830 Nm) of traction. Surprisingly, it’s not the heaviest of the three at 3,858 lbs (1,750 kg).

Of course, the fastest and fastest of the three – based on that drag racing – was the 911 Turbo S. It tips the scales at just 1,638 lbs (1,650 kg).

The 911 Turbo S is clearly the winner of these multiple rounds of drag racing, but what about the GT-R and M8? Watch the video at the top and let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
