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.
