Sorry if this is a repost. I don't frequent M3 board that much.

Audi R8

0-100km/h: 4.4s
Weight: 1661kg(full tank)
Track time: 1.39,8min


0-100km/h: 4.8s
Weight: 1626kg
Track Time: 1.40,1min

Vette C6

0-100km/h: 4.8s
Track Time:1.44,2min

Comments - on R8 were Pirelli P Zero The Hero in R8 specs version and on M3 were new Michelin Pilot Sport Cup +(new version-first cars to receive it are new M3 and 997 GT2, spces for both cars are little bit different but, new Cup + offers better street use and wet roadholding with excellent track potential). Both Hero's and Cup's + are current SOTA in tires development.

AZ stuff claimed that M3 engine is actually better then R8's and that is is currently the best German V8 in production(sorry C63...).

19" wheels were on both R8 and M3.

In current issue German Autostrassenverkher also testes R8, M3 and 997 GT3 on German race track Spreewaldring (more on and on this 2.7km track resluts were:

R8 1.37,5min
M3 1.39,2min
997GT3 1.37,8min

Track was partially wet.


M3 is impressive.

Vs simulations

The closeness of these numbers M3 vs. R8 is close to what I remember from my simulations with the CarTest software. M-DCT will push the M3 just ahead of the R8 under ideal drag conditions. Again with either 6MT or M-DCT it will be a drivers race, but it definitely is not false to say that the M-DCT M3 will be faster than the R8 in a good drag. Not to mention price...
