Obviously the stickier option tire was used, but hell, the 675lt and performante came with trofeo R tires standard too. No matter how you put it, the car with the right tires is insanely fast

Glad that the car is getting its legacy back. Check the Variano lap time: 1.08.2, better than Huracan Performante and Porsche 918 Spyder, not to mention 675 lt.

Were the Perfomante and 675lt using trofeo R tires? Good

Old Trofeo Rs for the 675LT. Cup 2 Rs are a completely different thing though. The Cup 2 N2s, or the Z06 Cup 2s or AMG GT R Cup 2s are equivalent to Trofeo Rs. Cup 2 Rs are more slick-like. Cup 2 Rs were 2.5s faster than Cup 2 N2s on Sachsenring with the GT3 RS. It's impressive, but it's tyre not car. You would need to add about 2s to its Vairano time for a figure comparable with the other car times.

In fact on Sachsenring, the GT3 RS with the Cup 2 Rs is as fast as the GT2 RS with Cup 2 N2s.
