    Intelligence in a proper set up is key. It doesn't matter how faster your car is, too much camber, too much downforce or a too bumpy suspension in the wrong track and you're done.

    The Bentley is the fastest car, followed by the RUF, then a toss-up between the SLS and Aston. Just look at the top ten time trials times for a couple different tracks.

    The RUF is the best GT3 car in the game in the corners once you set it up correctly. D-pad or wheel has nothing to do with it.

    Every car in this game needs to be set up properly in order to function optimally. Horsepower usually wins races though. That is, considering the drivers to be about the same.

    On big open tracks like Brno, the Bentley is impossible to beat.

    And don't waste your time trying to drive the Ginetta. It is an exercise in futility. They should replace it with a GT-R, a 458, or a Reiter Lambo.

    The DLC featuring the Bentley Continental GT3 and the LM Bentley is available in the PSStore right now for 3 and a few dollars.

    Interesting. I can not get the Bentley GT3 to do any tricks for me. My favorite car is the RUF GT3, followed closely by the McLaren and Audi. The Aston is strong too. I've been practicing at Donington Park GP. With all the GT's and the GRP5 Ford and BMW. Going to take the GT3 to Catalunya GP. Thanks for the info guys.

    In my humble opinion I would rank the GT3's in terms of overall pace;
    1: RUF RGT-8 GT3
    2: BMW Z4 GT3
    3: McLaren MP4-12C GT3
    4: Audi R8 LMS Ultra GT3 & Bentley Continental GT3
    5: Aston Martin Vantage GT3
    6: Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG GT3
    7: Ginetta G55 GT3

    I didn't rate the BMW M3 GT as it's not a proper GT3 car.

    Hard to understand the SLS position at the bottom of the rank but I believe you.

    Bentley is probably best looking but the McLaren is probably the fastest . Because in real life it can hit 206mph . And it's a McLaren ;)

    Amen.

    I hope SMS finds an agreement with Ferrari and Lamborghini. That would give GT3 racing on this game everything a gamer/racer could ask for. Well, the Corvette would be nice playmate for BMW GT. I think Ford GT is in GT class too?

    The C7.R is a beast its amazing :bowdown:.its fast good on the brakes fast though corners and as lite as a super cart... its freaking unbeatable. But dlc cars apart My favorite is between Maclaren, SLS, R8. 458 and gtr would make things interesting tho... the Ruf is too much to handle.

    They seem close on WG. I've done some testing there but forgot the Corvette :( you can see which 2 cars that don't match the others. One is tuned and one I didn't get a clean lap. I'm an average casual racer so they can go faster.

    I find it very accurate still today.. And the corvette has the same problem as the Aston GTE.. Both are GTE and really didn't to be in the same category of GT3

    When we race GTE we only allow the Aston GTE, BMW GT and Corvette as they're pretty close.
    We also exclude them from GT3 races.

    I noticed on the previous page I said the Bentley handles like ass, but that was before SMS updated it. Now it's fantastic. It's no longer as fast in a straight line, but it has massive cornering grip. One of the best gripping GT3 cars.

    I would rank all the GT3 cars as follows:

    Tier 1: Ruf RGT-8, Aston Martin V12 Vantage, Bentley Continental, BMW Z4
    Tier 2: McLaren 12C, Audi R8 LMS Ultra, Mercedes-Benz SLS
    Tier 3: Mercedes AMG GT, Cadillac ATS-V.R, Ginetta G55, Chevrolet Corvette C7.R, BMW M3 GT
    Tier 4: Aston Martin V8 Vantage

    For me, the Mercedes AMG GT could be in either Tier 2 or 3. Either at the tail end of Tier 2 or the front end of Tier 3, it's kind of in the middle. Though I've read people saying it's actually one of the fastest GT3 cars. I personally don't like the way it handles. It was by far the most difficult GT3 car to set up. My opinion is that aerodynamically it's too front-biased (lacks high speed stability), but the chassis is biased toward understeer. So it understeers at low speeds, but unstable at high speeds. So trying to make it more neutral at low speeds will make it even less stable at high speeds, but trying to make it more stable at high speeds will make it understeer more at low speeds. It took me a long time to get to a set up that made it feel ok.

    I don't actually find the Cadillac to be that quick. Definitely quite a bit slower than the Bentley. I think that the Bentley is superior to the Cadillac in pretty much every way (speed, grip, handling), but I've also read people saying the exact opposite. The only thing I like more in the Cadillac is that it's left hand drive. It always takes me a bit of time to get used to the right hand drive in the Bentley on how the car is positioned on the track.

    The Aston Martin GTE is truly in a league of its own... in slowness. In my testing (granted I really only tested on Spa), the difference in time between the fastest car in Tier 1 and the slowest car in Tier 3 is smaller than the time difference between the slowest car in Tier 3 and the Aston Martin GTE. I also recall that the Aston Martin GTE even uses slightly more fuel than the Aston Martin GT3. But I think the GTE might be better on tire wear.

    In the end, other than the Aston Martin GTE, it can really just come down to personal preference. Like which car's handling you like most, or which one you can be most consistent with. Because even in my testing on a long lap like Spa, the difference between the fastest car in Tier 1 and the slowest car in Tier 3 was only 1.117s. If you have different handling preferences than me, the order of those could probably easily shuffle around.

    My own personal favorite is the Ruf. I'm quickest on Spa out of all the GT3 cars in it, and it's my favorite in terms of handling. I don't think it's more difficult to drive than any of the other GT3 cars. Its handling definitely feels unique compared to the others, but I like it for some reason. I think it's really stable.
