That's a pretty amazing time for the V8 Vantage there, I'd never guess it to be in the same "region" as the R8 or a Carrera. Anyway, I'm confused. This is what Jeremy has to say about the R8 on page 186 of the Oct. issue of TG magazine:Btw; The official Sport Auto Supertest time for the Audi R8 on the Nordschleife is 8:04, so it just misses the 'eight-minute-barrier' despite it's sport tires and carbon brakes... For a reference the standard Porsche 911 Carrera S (355 hp) has recorded a time of 8:05, the GT3 on the other hand did a 7:48. Just for fun though, the Aston Martin V8 Vantage did an 8:03.
We waited for the R8 for years, and when Audi's alleged Lambo arrived we all wanted a drive. Then we quickly decided we'd take a proper Lambo over this any day of the week.
So does he love it or not?? Which is it man?! :lol:
