    I hate to spoil an argument but when I entered GT3 into GT6 so many cars were eligible that I found it very difficult to tell what was what. Unless it has GT3 in title then you're basically stupid. I cannot find anywhere in game that points out exactly how to spot a Gzt3 that isn't clearly labelled.
    So if somebody does name a car that is eligible for gt3 events on or offline then I think the reaction here is a little over the top. After all it's all virtual. We aren't on a grid with somebody cheating. This isn't the communities best moment considering just how many posts and the condescending nature of some.
    Can't we just lighten up? I wanna know the best cars that are ELIGABLE for specific GT event. This is not me criticising everyone, more of a plea for calmer heads...

    BMW Z4 is the best GT3 Car specified by PP

    Regulations set at 552bhp 1350kg, i feel the SLS would be the best in this situation.

    (Edit) There are only 14 PD designates as GT3 for seasonals, and allows uptuning to 630 PP but these setting allow ~equal performance ~ 2015 actual race timings.

    M-B SLS 15AE - 1350 kg, 550 HP, 619 PP
    BMW Z4 - 1190 kg, 550 HP, 605 PP
    Audi R8 LMS - 1250 kg, 575 HP, 623 PP
    GTR - 1350 kg, 625 HP, 627 PP (four versions, Schulze, Base, Nismo, Academy)

    Others, stock
    GTR 15 AE - 1350 kg, 621 HP, 616 PP
    M-B SLS - 1350 kg, 493 HP, 610 PP

    But several others can be set up using the FIA ~ Balance of Performance criteria,
    1200-1300 kg, 500-600 HP, LM cars should be approx. equivalent with power and weight changes. And GT6 special TC editions.

    Corvette C2 - 1250 kg, 575 HP, 572 PP

    Viper GTS-R - 1200 kg, 525 HP 599 PP
    Camaro LM - 1200 kg, 592 HP, 601 PP
    Falcon XR8 - 1350 kg, 650 HP, 609 PP
    GTR R34 TC -
    Lexus LF-LC - 1250 kg, 500 HP, 590 PP (has ERS)
    Toyota FT-1 - 1200 kg, 539 HP, 605 PP (has ERS)

    Lexus IS-F TC - 1200 kg, 625 HP, 599 PP
    BMW Vision GT - 1180 kg, 500 HP, 604 PP

    MR cars need more handicapping:

    Ford GT LM Spec II - 1250 kg, 500 HP, 603 PP
    Pagani Zonda LM - 1200 kg, 550 HP, 594 PP

    Here are GT3 actual 2015 lap times, avg(pole + fl). 14 GT6 laps are being used for the popular FIA GT3 national and international series such as Pirelli World, Michelin, Blancpain, ADAC, IMSA, Asia.

    The Speilberg track is a good calibration lap, should be able to do with the 630 PP RH in-game GT3 cars.

    Red Bull Ring - 1:30.6
    Motegi - 1:15.0
    Nurburgring GP - 1:15.6
    Brands Hatch - 1:24.2
    Laguna Seca - 1:25.1
    Fuji F - 1:37.5
    Daytona Road - 1:47.5
    Monza - 1:48.0
    Silverstone - 2:00.2
    Suzuka - 2:00.1
    Bathurst - 2:01.9
    Spa - 2:23.5
    Le Mans - 4:03.5

    This thread seems pretty dead now . But in answer to OP's question , my favourite GT3 would be the RJN Nissan.

    All down to preference .

    as of today, I'd say anything BUT the Z4. It sucks. It's just horrible. My 25th car and well, the very first one I regret to buy.
    Horrible handling
    Horrible acceleration
    Not that stable either
    Takes an hour to get out of that grass, as 1st shift is hella long to start pushing

    A the end of the day, my 628pp's stock Aventador is definitely better on all aspects, and well, if I fail to control it, at least I won't drop from 3rd position to 16th just by trying to get back on track... >_<
