Well its no secret I've hankered after one of these for over a year, I absolutely loved my C6, in my view the C6 RS6 is a classic, the last of the big block turbo powered mile munchers, so easily tuneable and so blooming' fast in a straight line... mind-blowing!! But...

I've developed a taste for track driving, the C6, as fast as it was (9min 20s round the ring, 4 up on only my 4th lap ever and I'd easy get it round in the 8mins now!) but followed Dave IR8V8 round Combe at ADI and compounded what I kinda knew... the R8 is a special car on track, and thankfully I now know it's a dream to drive on the road day to day too!

Now before you say OMG Nige you didn't seriously buy an R8 to track, no I didn't really, however my car is a weekend wonder and I couldn't justify having the C6 and a track toy so I bit the bullet while I'm still young

So, selling cars is a royal pain in the arris I now know, I saw and test drove this car I bought 3 weeks before I sold the C6... yes that's three weeks climbing the walls hoping it didn't get sold but I hope you'll agree I picked the right one. I didn't want another black car, as hot as the R8 looks in black I fancied a change and I'm so very pleased I went with this one!

IBIS White R8 V10 Coupe R-Tronic:

Carbon Side Blades / Carbon Inlays / Carbon Engine Bay Trim / Carbon Door Sills / Extended Leather Pack 3 / Alcantara Head Lining / Parking System Advanced / Cruise / Homelink / High Beam assist / Milltek Racing Exhaust - on top of the Std spec to which I've added Carbon Mirror Housings and have Black Exhaust Tips and GT rear lights sitting here waiting to go on. The Mov'it Ceramics are going on soon and a trip to MRC planned.

Pics... loads, I make no excuse as the R8 is one sexy looking car in my opinion...

Jealous mate, that is a proper car.

What sort of power can MRC get out of the V10?

Very different tbh, but then very different cars also... the R8 is very quick but lacks that immense torque of the C6. A tuned C6 defies physics, your brain never gets used to the way it shifts once into illegal speeds.

The R8 is very tail happy too, caught me out a couple of times in the wet, love it!!

Yeah, still pinching myself!

The last one I saw them do (Map + Filters) came out at 587PS I think
