I honestly can't look at the M6 compared to the R8 (even the V-8) let alone most true sports cars. And unlike Aston's GT cars, it's rather ugly.

I think he might have something there, id you look at the difference from 0-160 and then compare it to the difference from 0-200, you'll see that it got smaller by 0,5s.

I don't know the exact unrestricted speed of the M6 but even if it is 200mph, it would take a loooooooong time to catch the R8 5.2 at 197mph (roughly).

complete nonsens...
at 125mph the R8 V10 has already a lead of 1.4s over the M6... 1.4s at 200km/h is a lead of 78m/85yards ..

All I have seen everywhere is "numbers", here is the simple fact, although the R8 is an unbelievably fast vehicle, and yes it would pull away from the M6, a de-limited M6 in a real race would pull that R8 back at high speeds with absolutely no problem, the reason why I say this is because I own both cars, and I can assure you that even thogh the R8 looks, and is alot lot more fun, the M6 is quite a bit faster at speeds over 120MPH.
