0-60 in 3.7 sec would be fun. Best I've managed with the Grand National is 0-60 in 3.9 sec. How's the balance in the corners with the V10 in the back?

I'm getting 3.2 0-60 with the auto, the manual is slower. The handling is truly supercar level. The wheelbase is long and the engine is tucked as far forward as possible. The quattro system make that sucker stick and yet it will still let the back wiggle and come out to play when pushed, but it'll never come all the way around on you. It's the first supercar that can be driven all day long. Even the Lambo version of the same car beats you to death after about an hour.
I've had fast cars, some even quicker than an R8- but the R8 isn't just quick, it's fast. It's really at home cruising at 150+ effortlessly, which unfortunately we don't get to do.
