MT Pits GT-R Against R8 V10

Comparison

The latest supercar killing machine faces off against its German-built rival on the racetrack and some twisty mountain roads.

Only days after doing a full review of the Nissan GT-R Track Pack edition, Motor Trend is back with yet another supercar comparison as the track-focused Godzilla faces off against the Audi R8 V10 Plus. These two all-wheel drive supercars represent the very pinnacle of technology and performance from each of their respective automakers, but the big question is how they perform on canyon roads and the racetrack. Each car has recently received a number of updates, such as the GT-R’s handling-focused Track Pack and the R8 V10’s new dual-clutch transmission.

The most important question, however, is which is the better supercar? Despite their many differences, MT still manages to determine a winner. Check out the video ahead to see how it all plays out.
