maybe the really hot conditions played a part, well it definitely did, but we don't know how much. The 911 turbo S was 2.2s slower than a previous test.
OR this chassis was never meant for RWD only.
bear in mind, this costs about the same as a 911S and a AMG GTS.

In that sense I think it's quite a bargain.

Not the slowest, the corvette was the slowest on the track. Considering how comfy and gt oriented the r8 is, it's not a bad laptime at all. However, I'd take the 911 or a Corvette over this car. Less money, same performances.

R8 is worth extra cash for that glorious V10 engine. It wins with that engine alone. Vette is cheap becouse is worse. Nothing special.

I bet the McLaren could go faster than that and maybe the AMG also.

Wow "Vette is cheap because it's worse" is just mildly ignorant.

pretty ignorant to say “corvette cheaper because worse” Corvette ZR1 does 1/4 mile in 10.2 seconds, and 10.8 on STREET SURFACE, audi R8 V10 performance does 10.7-10.9 seconds, the porsche 911 turbo S is same price as R8 and does 1/4 mile in 10.1-10.0 seconds. R8 performance does nurburgring in 7:32 while ZR1 does 7:04 on COLD STREET TIRES, Z06 does 7:13, the Base model C8 does 7:29, R8 loses to base model corvette on nurburgring, also turbo S does 7:17, R8 loses to camaro ZL1 1LE in almost every track.

This race was rigged. Sport auto doesn't know shit about how to drive American cars. Just to state the absolute obvious.
