The R8 test numbers don't add up with other reviews, especially at speeds over 60 mph.

My suspicion:

1. Cars weren't tested back to back by the same person

2. Testers were using the wrong fuel quality (93 octane is minmum for the R8, same as 570S and Turbo S) because the specs claim 91 octane

Also this is the first review someone didn't like the steering or the handling, which is really weird. The steering is amazing,,with short ways and very direct. Handling is almost go-kart like. So... yes
