Junior Achievement - Car and Driver August 2016

Interesting "Comparo" in the August Car and Driver Magazine titled "junior achievement" comparing the Audi R8 V-10 Plus vs. McLaren 570S vs. Porsche 911 Turbo S. Check it out for the details!!

I love the fact that it was shot along New York's beautiful but short route 218 just north of west point. Love that road

The article is 100% correct!
Iam on Euro delivery of an R8 as I write.
Steering is to light and unstreers with 245/30/20 PZeros.
Hopefully with some different tires thing improve.
But R8 is perfectly comfortable as a DD.
I was running on the Autobahn with a brand new 991.2 TTS and from 120 kph to 260 kph the R8 is faster.

I am certainly glad my TTS will never be confused with a Vector...

Karl, can't wait to see your R8!

I test tracked a 570S also, and found it to be exactly what the article said.
Now I am going to have to figure out why the Huracan handles better.
There made on the same assembly line in Neckarsulm , DE.
Go figure this same PZeros on both the Huracan and R8, but front air pressures the factory recommend is 32psi for Huracan, 42 psi for R8.
Maybe it is just because of autobahn speeds??
The R8 has tire temperatures now, and I noticed pressures and tempature decease when cruising above 200kph ( 125mph )
