Ive seen numerous claims that M3 CSL is as fast as Carrera GT on the Nurburgring.

Can anyone explain how this is possible? or i am missing something

Carrera GT
Curb Weight MT 3042 lbs
Type: V10
Displacement: 5733 cc
Horsepower: 612 bhp @ 8000 rpm
Torque: 435 lb-ft @ 5750 rpm
Redline: 8400 rpm



BMW M3 CSL
Curb Weight: 3050 lbs
Horsepower: 360 bhp @ 7900 rpm
Torque: 273 lb-ft @ 4900 rpm
Redline: 8000 rpm


If they weight the same, and GT has more hp ... HOW is it possible?

They clocked a 7:30 w/ the loaded supercharged CSL.
Not a regular CSL

ok yeah I think i mixed up things here.

Well first i read that interview on m5board and Director of M GmBh said


"In 1992 BMW Individual was founded and in 1993 the company was renamed to BMW M GmbH. In 1996 BMW Motorsport was launched. Causing some confusion, since BMW M GmbH was the BMW Motorsport But now BMW Motorsport is responsible for all the racing activites for BMW (F1 etc). In 1997 the first SMG gearbox and in 1998 tthe third M5 and in 2000 the third generation of the M3, and 2003 the M3 CSL which Bruhnke said "loved this car very much. You have to drive it. Faster around Nürburgring than a McLaren SLR "."

Tonight I watched GIS5 and they did a test drive of the M3 CSL (not Loaded's though(it was in the video too though) and they said that its quicker than Carrera GT)

It was tuned, with some highend coilovers and 20k Brembo brakes.

But they said that csl is as fast as carrera gt, guess what 70k in mods can do.

I think i misintepreted that especially cause i think i heard that M guy said its as fast as Carrera gt.
I gotta watch the review now, was it before the mods or after.
