Guy in the Hellcat took down a friend's DS1 modded RS7 so he wanted to give the R8 a try...

Ran three times results were the same. If the R8 gave him a slight hit it was closer but couldn't keep the power going up top. Before anyone mentions it yes the oil cap cover was loose but it was just the plastic top part. It's since been fixed. Wouldn't have known about it if it wasn't for the camera.

It’s the + gearing that really shines.

Agreed. You can tune the base model all day but that gearing cannot be replicated!

LOL. I enjoy all platforms and used to own some pretty fast Corvette cars back in the day. They all have their place but on the street with a street tire AWD is king. Regardless, I gave him a speed where he felt he could hook up and he did.

Muscle cars certainly have their place, and I've actually always liked the Shelby versions of the Mustangs.
I've also always been a Corvette fan as well.
But I love my R8's...so much I'm on my 3rd one.
I'm saddened that there will not be a next generation R8...and I'm not sure I can stomach the $40K-$60K Lambo tax for an R8 cousin.
