The AWD helped the GTR at the launch, but the LFA driver fell asleep (or was playing with the LCD screen) and had a horrible reaction time (4:38)

I expect better than 11.8 in the quarter after a few other cars are tested.

The white eLF-Ant has more potential than we've seen. Can't wait to see the LFA Nürburgring Package...
