Here’s What It’s Like To Chase The Cayman GT4 On The Nurburgring

Have you ever noticed how vehicles seem so much cooler in the hands of journalists from the same country where they were made? Well, for example, the Czechs can make the Octavia RS seem like the most brutal Nurburgring speed machine ever, when it’s clearly not. The video below we’ve discovered paints a similar picture, but with the French flavor. The Peugeot GTi is certainly not the best French hot hatch ever made, and it’s one of the newest and fastest. In a drag race with the Renault Megane RS, it stands a real chance, as it’s the relative featherweight thanks to the much smaller 1.6-liter turbo engine. And the 270 model also has larger wheels, brakes, and the mechanical diff. You know what else has the turbocharged engine? Not the Porsche Cayman GT4, which belongs to the old guard of naturally aspirated precision tools. And yet we have the video below that cannot be explained. The only logical explanation to several minutes of the Peugeot keeping up with the Porsche and eventually overtaking it is that the GT4 drive is not sufficiently committed. So naturally, we had to pull the few numbers for this one. The benchmark for the GT4 is set pretty high, this 385 hp machine having completed the lap of the track in 7:42. There’s no benchmark for a Peugeot 308 GTi, but a few folks have done in in a little over 8 minutes with traffic. A Megane RS 275 Trophy-R did it in 7:54.36. But that’s got the roll cage and racing tires, so it doesn’t count.
