It's American muscle against German engineering in this track car shootout.
The last CNET Roadshow comparison we saw was a bit odd, with the Jaguar F-Type SVR going up against the Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport. This shootout is much more balanced and features three cars instead of two: the Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R, Dodge Viper ACR and Porsche 911 GT3 RS. It’s tough to pick a winner from that group. A case could be made for why each car is superior. The Ford offers a ton of power and fun in an ultra-cheap (by comparison) package. The Viper ACR looks awesome and makes a ton of downforce.
The 911 GT3 RS has the most civilized interior and is still a beast out on the track. See? Everyone is a winner here!
Eventually the three presenters do come to a conclusion, but not before sharing their thoughts on each car and drag racing them. We won’t give away which car won. You’ll just have to watch the video in its entirety—or skip to the end—to figure out which two cars took home participation trophies. While the comparison was very detailed, we’d have liked to see some lap times. Ideally professional drivers would set them but we’d settle for times posted by the presenters! Which one of these three is the quickest around that test track? Concerns about infotainment screens and seats are valid, but what it all boils down to between these three cars is performance!
