    Probably bad shifting from the R8 driver? The autos change gear in fractions of a second, the R8 driver likely did at least 3 changes... inches make up miles as they say!

    V8 R8s are pretty slow . It should have been V10 engine only from the begging

    Of course there are quicker cars out there, you could race a V10 R8 against a P1 but that wouldn't be a fair test.
    But this about racing cars in a similar class isn't it? or in fact the same weight but actually less power in the TTS! Something doesn't quite add up tho, sack the driver!

    I drove the ttrs. The numbers were very impressive on paper, but the vehicle had nothing special about it that would make me pick it over a V8 R8. I guess I’m getting old, and the overall package is more important to me than just numbers.

    That's it, I mean a tesla model s p100 d would probably beat all of the above but would you want that over a burbling 8 cylinder r8? All round experience is everything. Also rolling performance is really where it's at I would much prefer a car with a good 40-100 performance than a crazy 0-60, it's just so much more useful and fun overall.

    But

    When they do these tests there should also be a final test that is away from an airfield with a straight run flat out thrash and test this ....

    You take both home and park them on your drive and click the lock button and you just can't help looking back and thinking

    A. that is a thing of beauty

    or B. you don't bother looking back

    and then another test

    When you go to close your curtains at night you just can't help

    A. Looking at the driveway and thinking, yes that is a beautiful design, I still like the beauty of it after a few years

    or

    B. you just close the curtains and don't bother looking at your car on the driveway.


    Small print: There will be some who park their car in a garage. Just replace 'driveway' with 'garage' above and forget the curtains thing.


    Even smaller print: it's not just about thrashing it. There's more to ownership than 'who will be the fastest to get away if a meteor is gonna hit your city'.

    This video shows one reason why I sold my
    V8 and got the new V10+.

    Beauty is always in the eyes of the beholder.....and I'd beholding to the R8 every day of the week and twice on Sunday.
