wearing P zero tires and only .4s slower than a Huracan Evo, and matching a 991.2 gt3
And someone kept insisting that a Mclaren GT had to be MUCH faster than a M8 around a track.

No question the BMW M8 is an impressive performer but until we have a comparison lap contest with the McLaren GT with same driver, rubber etc it's a guessing game. I don't see this happening any time soon, if ever, but my money would still be on the GT..

The M8 is crazy fast, no doubts... However the Mclaren GT has the same power output, it's a lot lighter, it only has 2 seats, it accelerates faster, it's mid-engined... It should be faster than the m8, at least on paper.
However, given how well the m8 has performed so far, I take nothing for granted... The m8 might even win, who knows
