Watch The Porsche 911 GT3 Beat The Much More Expensive McLaren 570S Track Pack

Watch The Porsche 911 GT3 Beat The Much More Expensive McLaren 570S Track Pack

The Porsche 911 GT3 has, for a long time, been the sports car everyone has to beat on a track – and that happens probably because no rival has managed to keep this juggernaut down in terms of lap times and driver engagement so far.

McLaren’s entry-level 570S on the other hand has been universally appraised for offering a genuine supercar experience in a more affordable price, and the recently introduced Track Pack option wants to make it even more rewarding to customers who are frequent track-day attendees.

The Track Pack is limited to a set of carbon-fiber bucket seats that are 25kg lighter than the standard ones, a higher rear wing that provides more downforce, lightweight alloy wheels and a freer-flowing sports exhaust.

Those revisions might not sound that important, but McLaren reckons that a 570S fitted with the Track Pack is going to be around half a second to a second quicker around most tracks compared to the standard 570S.

The 911 GT3 is considerably cheaper than the McLaren, costing as much as £48,000 less than the 570S Track Pack, if you stay away from optional features. Simply put, you could buy a 911 GT3 and a 718 Cayman and a 911 GT3 to match the £159,750 starting price of the McLaren.

Not only it’s cheaper, but the 911 GT3 is also powered by a wonderful naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six engine that revs up to 9,000 rpm and has a chassis tuned by the gods over at Porsche’s GT department.

The 570S has an edge of performance thanks to its twin-turbo V8, which offers substantially more torque. And yet, it somehow lost. How did this happen? Watch for yourselves.
