Very good car here in europe to hunt it in used cars market. Car is few years on sales, and there is possibility to find cars with 30.000-60.000 km droven, with a lot of options on it, and about 30% of sale price.

Mid engined, more fun than traction oriented AWD system, Lambo based, looks and feels like super car.

Ofcourse its risky to buy one of those, but it still in a price of good equiped Audi A3 and other semi-premium cars.

Its more than fast enough in real life. If someone want more speed, i dont know what for it would be on public road?

@Eryk03

Forget AMS-data, it was 430 ps R8.
Sportautos data is correct. :D

This lap time screws up any comparisons made on this website to other cars. I personally don't think Wet times should be factored in. I guess it is more of a programming issue, but if it is a programming issue, maybe wet times shouldn't be posted?

how the heck R8 V10 broek during the race? it has the lambo engine with an ECU restrictor for RPM..LOL

Mr.Turbo  8y ago

is there anything wrong in silverstone laptime ?


User avatar

FastestLaps  9y ago

As I mentioned in my latest article, Audi R8 V10 technically broke down during the race. I don't know whether or not it was running 100% well during time attack before the race. R8 V10 laptime is from time attack because it did not complete a single lap in race.


User avatar

Georg  9y ago

sorry that can´t be right... Hockenheim is a similar short track with the same amount of slow and fast turns and only short straight ... there the V10 owns the V8 with two seconds both cars were equipped there with the same tires.. at no other track the V8 beats the V10

Incredible Tsukuba laptime for R8 4.2! Faster than V10 and faster than LP-560. Car seems to be ideally suited for the track and the driver did an awesome job as well. It kept up with Shadow GT-R and LP-560 during the whole race.

The Silverstone laptime was done by car magazine in a stock car compare...

There was another laptime recently added that was fake.

2:12, why would that laptime have to be done with slicks? its right where it should be.


User avatar

Anonymous  9y ago

The Silverstone laptime is incorrect. Unless it did it on full slicks. Somebody delete it

thats correct bumrush...someone mixed 0-60mph with 0-100km/h happens daily here at fastestlaps...


User avatar

BumRush  9y ago

No audi, the 4.1 you saw was fro 0-60mph, the 4.4 here is from 0-62mph/0-100kmh.


User avatar

audi r8  9y ago

@ George
the number was 4.1s here before i sayed that !! then some one correct it to 4.4s !! i sayed correct the 4.1 s !!


User avatar

Anonymous  9y ago

is it worth $125,000? id say yes!


User avatar

Georg  9y ago

why they should correct it? Audi officle claims 4.6s for the R8. Exactly the same time you have reached, so Audi claim perfromance numbers the average driver can reach with little practise... the better acceleration times were done by skilled drivers or under better weather/track conditions...


User avatar

audi r8  9y ago

So they should correct it .


User avatar

Anonymous  9y ago

Thats because thas the 0-60mph time, which has also ben recorded in 3.9s, but the 0-100kmh tim is about 4.4s.
