A BMW M3 confronted a Nissan GT-R on a crowded Nürburgring bridge to gantry lap.

A BMW M3 confronted a Nissan GT-R on a crowded Nürburgring bridge to gantry lap.

The race took place earlier this month and involved a BMW M3 (E92) which managed to keep up the pace with a Nissan GT-R (R35). The M3 had several modifications installed as it featured an Akrapovic titanium exhaust, Schirmer three-way suspension, AP Racing brakes, Recaro sport seats and roll cage.

According to the person who uploaded the clip, the GT-R packed 620+ bhp (462+ kW) which is a lot more than the M3's 420 bhp (313 kW) output. Despite the significant differences between the two, the rear-wheel drive M3 proved to be a worthy adversary as the all-wheel drive GT-R didn't manage to escape during the bridge to gantry lap (approximately 19 km long) which was completed in 7 minutes and 57.18 seconds.
