No, in case you’re wondering, we didn’t come up with this test. It does seem a little silly on paper to put a 381 kW 5.2-litre V10 Audi R8 against a 175 kW 2.0-litre four-cylinder Honda Civic Type R (Mugen). Nonetheless the folks at Autocar did just that. It’s meant to be a real world test and it’s worth watching:
The Audi R8 goes from 0-100km/h in 3.9 seconds whilst the Honda takes an extra 2.1 seconds to get up to speed.
