So what is quicker and faster? The Audi R8. The Mustang absolutely rips the R8 out of the hole as its excellent 1.623 60 foot shows. The guy can drive and launches very well. The R8 just has too much horsepower on the top end and although the 1/4 mile elapsed time between the two is close at 11.3 for the Mustang versus 11.0 for the R8 the trap speed difference of 10 miles per hour shows the R8 pulling much harder up top.
This is the same R8 V10 that was posted on AudiBoost yesterday as breaking into the 10's. On the 10 second run the R8's 60 foot was 1.771 showing that a rear wheel drive with less power and displacement can definitely out launch an all wheel drive car on the strip if prepped and driven properly.
Good video and race.
