I do not agree with the outcome. But i am biased :):)

Not quite Harry's garage and the guy does sound like a 70's british travel reporter, but at least a review and the gt certainly won him over.

I was surprised he chose the GT, after he banged on about, how bad the R-tronic & materials was at the beginning of the video. The GT Spyder tested wasn't the most equipped one either, so wasn't fair to comment on the materials. Overall, quite a good review of the two cars. He also forgot to mention the R8 GT has different side mirrors.

Yes. And I think he forgot carbon bumper on gt, plexiglass windows and thinner windscreen glass on both etc. But good to see the review. I do need to get a ride in a gt

I think he found out what many who take the time find out, the Rtronic is actually really good and fun to drive. I feel that eventually, people will seek it out for its engaging mannerisms. I have owned a ton of cars, and that's what I like most about mine.

Agree completely, even better when you get a decent TCU tune flashed in, absolutely great fun to drive.

Here, here!
The R-Tronic's best, factual benefit over the S-Tronic is the significantly lower weight.
I just say "It's quirky, I'm quirky, we get along very well."

The 2013 Plus and 2014 have GT door mirrors too?? My 2013 mirrors say GT Glossy inside...
