Are you serious? The R8 is basically a Lamborghini Gallardo and costs $120,000.

In that price range, you're paying for more than just speed. You have to admit it'll wipe the floor w/a Camaro, especially around a track.

Yeah I just saw one in town yesterday, and they look amazing.

If anyone on this board owns an R8 and is waiting for your Camaro order to come in also, I will trade you cars until it comes in...............

Ha the Island I work on has had a recent influx of R8's, maybe because the wether is nice but we've had 3 new ones so far pop up. But yea they'd kill the camaro all day every day.

I suppose you can buy a camaro and add $70k in upgrades. Then you'd be $10k cheaper and probably have a better car. ROFLMAO

Haha, I don't know who taught you how to talk. But, the Mustang v6 '10(I know bad comparison, lol) is 94HP less than the Camaro v6 '10 and its isn't but 1 second off in the qaurter and barely off on the 0-60 run. So the SS having 6 more HP is not it's winning factor. The R8 is 'Fasta'. No comparison in the two. R8 would bust open the Camaro's hood with just it's take off. I would rather have a SS even if I had the money, I would never throw 120k into an Audi, I'd get a Lambo or Ford GT maybe even a Nissan GTR.

According to popular mechanics, they're dead even 0-60, quarter mile, and the R8 gave them a worse stopping distance

http://www.popularmechanics.com/auto...81.html?page=5

I didn't know it only had 317 ft. lbs., interesting...

it also won 'best handling car in america' beating the M3, rx-8, F430, etc.


Straight line speed is its WEAKNESS, where as with the SS its the STRENGTH. And even then the R8 is fasterr... regardless of popular mechanics.

Dont believe Audi's 0-60 quote of 4.7 sec. Motortrend ripped off a 3.9sec run in their test. So unfortunately the R8 with scortch the SS in every aspect.

The R8 is definitely not about straight line speed, but it is a bit ahead of the Camaro anyway, running mid-high 12's. I realize this car is not about 1/4 mile runs, but since it was brought up, lets compare a few things. It is pretty heavy for such an expensive car, at 3650 lbs, it gets 13/20 mpg, it is only a two seater, it is ridiculously priced, and the relatively small displacement doesn't leave much room for improvement. How can a 6.2L corvette get 16/26 mpg and the Audi only manages 13/20? I guess if you have the money you don't care but it doesn't seem like a practical vehicle to me.

from what ive read the v6 camaro does 5.9 or 6.0 depending on the review, and the mustang gets to 60 in 7.0, making it a second off in the 0-60. the challenger does it in 7.5. but thats just what ive read

Well the original poster specifically said the 420 hp version, but I must admit I didn't even know about the new one.

A 2010 corvette Z06 will be a good match up for the R8 though.. The ZR1 will smoke it..
