We've got our hands on three marvelous V10-powered R8s, and they will go head-to-head over the quarter mile!
So let's see how the 3 compare. Starting with the R8 V10 Efficiency, it's powered by a 5.2-litre naturally-aspirated V10 that can produce 570hp and 550Nm of torque. Power is sent out to the rear wheels via a 7-speed dual clutch gearbox, and it pointers the scales at 1,590 kg. If you're seeking to pick one up, it'll cost around ₤ 132,000.
Then we have the R8 V10 Efficiency Spyder. It's real estate the exact same engine was the coupe, however power has actually been increased to 620hp and 580Nm. Power is sent out to all four wheels through a 7-speed dual clutch, but as it's the Spyder it's the heaviest car here, weighing in at 1,695 kg. The rate is likewise up on the coupe, costing around ₤ 167,000.
However that rate is nothing compared to the limited-edition R8 GT – the last completely petrol-powered R8 to ever be produced! It costs from ₤ 200,000, and just 15 of them are set to go on sale in the UK! However, it still features the exact same 5.2-litre V10 as the other cars, and the power output is practically identical to the Spyder, at 620hp and 565Nm! Power is sent out to the rear wheels only, but it's likewise the lightest vehicle here, at 1,570 kg.
So how will this one play out – will the brand new R8 snatch it? Or will the AWD performance of the Spyder power it to triumph? There's only one method to learn … LET'S RACE!
