Mercedes AMG GTR vs Porsche 911 GT3 RS – road & track
Two of the most exciting cars you can buy, tested on Irish tarmac and track, by two customers.

Sam and Tony test the two cars on bumpy moorland B-roads and on track at Mondello Park, and the comparisons – although not very scientific – are enlightening.
Handling, power delivery, sound, launch control and straight-line speed are all put to the test. Which would you choose?
