I was driving to Stuttgart the other day and the Autobahn was not too crowded so I decided (despite the gas prices in Germany ghead ) to have a little adrenaline rush. My M3 topped out at about 260km/h (160mph).
That way I caught up to a Porsche 911 Turbo not too far from Stuttgart. He was on the right lane going about 160km/h(100mph). I was about to pass him when he saw me. He pulled to the left lane and stomped the gas. I shifted back in 4th and also punched the throttle. So basically a roll-on in 4th from about 100mph.
Well here's the result... I slowly but surely pulled on him. The moment he realized I was getting close he pulled back to the right lane and I passed him hitting about 240kmh/h(150mph). Later on we went to cruising speed since we were getting close to the city. I let him pass me again and we waved at each other... a nice race and all in good fun
But check out the irony... all that happened about 5miles from Stuttgart-Zuffenhausen and I'm sure you all know who is located there... the Porsche main factory, so victory on the road satisfying both meanings of the expression
I also happened to have my dig. camera with me, so I took a shot of my prey
ha ha. Not fast enough. What's the standard top speed (non-limited) on an e36 m3? I didn't think you'd need an evo to go that fast. If you're talking acceleration... well, shame on me, but I'm unsure about the 911's top end portion of the curve.
I don't know what you guys meant by M3 evo, but we do have only the M3 with 3.0 litre 286HP engine and the M3 with 3.2 litre 321HP engine. These are the real and original M3's. Furthermore there was a few months in 1995 a GT version of the M3 3.0 litre, doing 295HP......
Topspeed of the 3.0 M3 without limiter: ~272 km/h (169 mph)
Topspeed of the 3.2 M3 without limiter: ~285 km/h (177 mph)

Good to know I can break 160. .
That's what I meant about the evo. The 286hp one. I didn't know about the gt 295 hp... or did I... I don't remember... poop. I'm going to hit the auto books again.
