Suppose you have to choose between an Audi R8 and a Corvette ZR1. Which one would it be?

The Audi R8 has a 5.2 liter V10 engine with a choice of manual and R tronic gearboxes. It can produce 525hp and make the 0-60 sprint in under 3.9 seconds and the R tronic semi automatic equipped V10 will reach 125 MPH from a standstill in another 8.1 seconds with a top speed around 197 MPH.

The Corvette ZR1 has a 6.2L engine rated at 638 hp and a peak torque of 604 lbs-ft. The ZR1 makes the 0 to 60 mph sprint in 3.4 seconds and will not stop until it hits a top speed of 205 mph.

So, has a decision been made yet? Check the video and see if your choice matches the one made by Jeremy Clarkson.

Very true, using that rationale by Audi, the LP-560 is faster than a GT-R V-spec right?

Shouldn’t Lamborghini’s be setting the lap records over at VW group?

Well, the reason why the vette skids it’s because it’s RW plus it’s rear end is way heavier than the front. And most car enthusiast are using it as a drift car.

I agree! In terms of looks and aggressiveness, I bet the R9 will win the match but in terms of speed and power there is not doubt that the Vette will win the match. Well, i hope they also include the GT-R here.

Negatively thing i could say about the zr1 is that they should had made it look more different other than just doing a few things to the body. The zr1 would almost blend in with a z06 if you didn’t see the hood.

hahah the German car doesn’t have a chance in winning over the American sports blooded car, the race was just like what happened on the R8 vs 911 carrera 4s, the R8 is well balance and it’s handling capabilities gives an edge over the 911 and Vette.
