It's England. It rains a lot. Enough said.
For years the Porsche 911 Turbo (and Turbo S) has been considered the quintessential everyday supercar. It's refined, luxurious, and comfortable and, when required, a powerful and force on the track. And then came the Audi R8. In many ways, it immediately redefined what an everyday supercar is all about. With more exotic looks than a 911, the R8 was not only an immediate standout but also quite the performance animal itself.
And now that the second gen R8 has arrived, notably the top-end R8 V10 Plus, how does it compare with the formidable 911 Turbo S? Ironically, both are part of the VW Group empire but there are differences. Rear- vs. mid-engine and turbocharged vs, naturally aspirated are just two examples. How do they compare on the track? Evo aims to find out.
