But what car is the ultimate Nordschleife car?

Mercedes has tried hard with the Mercedes AMG GTR and while being insanely fast for a couple of laps, it is to hard on maintenance to do this all day long. This also goes for the Ferrari's, while being great the maintenance is too high. Just replacing the carbon ceramic brakes is over 20K.

So that is why you see the BMW M3/M4 and the Porsche GT3's so much.

These cars are easy to rive, can easily be tuned and are OK on maintenance.

They are not cheap, but the brakes, discs and other components are reaily available and reasonable prices. That is why these cars are so good for the Nordschleife.

Just look how fast you can go in an "older" BMW M3 e46, perfect by Team Schirmer:
