    I've posted that drag race.

    It's not that the Audi has more hp it's that you have no data in that short drag race and that the European cars are lighter than the US cars which are made for different crash test standards.

    The Audi R8 is not faster than the Huracan. Period.

    It's not that. I'm just providing what I believe to be correct information.

    I appreciate your perspective.

    This is such a large variance it is almost inexplicable.

    We need to separate the MotorTrend and C&D features.

    It just puts into perspective how flawed C&D Lightning Laps are. They really need to higher a pro driver and run all the vehicles same day. Quit using magazine editors to set timed laps.

    You can see with Sport Auto's supertest of the R8 and Huracan. The new R8 sits right where it should be, a few seconds behind the Huracan around the ring.

    Sport Auto - Nurburgring

    R8 V10+ ------------------ 7:32
    Huracan LP 610-4 -------- 7:28

    That's exactly as it should be.

    The Euro R8's are lighter though...

    Looks like the new Carrera S outperformed the M4 GTS again, while on normal street tires.

    Just want to clear this up, the 1LE is a manual only option, which makes these times even more impressive. The GT350, Grand Sport, and ACR are just dominating the competition.

    That indeed does make it more impressive.

    By the way, I picked up my 17 SS in July. Waiting to see what Whipple brings to the table before I decide what route I want to take. I'll post details when everything is finalized.

    Not yet. Getting it washed tomorrow, and a cold front comes through on Saturday, so I can provide some rough performance data and pictures. I say cold front, but that just means the high will be 85, versus 98.

    Dude... awesome. I don't even know what to say.

    That car deserves its own thread though.

    Please, please, please, please, make a thread with detailed pictures. I'll even throw up an article for you if you get me good pics and impressions!
