    Verdict: The Turbo S won the test because of its brutal biturbo-boxer, its perfect PDK-gearbox and its everyday-usability. Second place goes to the perfectly balanced SLS AMG, its optional Sportsuspension is good for everyday-use too. Handling is top. The Audi's 3rd place was - well - predictable. AMS says the comfort and the agile handling is great, but not enough for a better place. The R-tronic shifts hard and "slow" comparing to the DSG's - the gearbox is the biggest "mistake" of the Audi.

    My conclusion: The acclaimed R8 is already yesterday's car now that the new and more complete SLS is on the road. Sportscars come and go but the Turbo is always evergreen and the standard for performance.

    I already posted numbers from AMS test few hours ago in 911 Turbo S thread. I also posted numbers for 458 Italia, 997.2 Turbo PDK and Gallardo LP570-4 SL(tested in latest issue as well) for comparison.

     Did you look into the test? The difference is actually really small. R8 has the best driving characteristics, but the R-tronic is the problem. Take out the 3 points the Turbo gets for having rear seats and it's even closer to the SLS. Can't go wrong with any of these 3 cars. Smiley

    Just, that everybody is talking and writing great things about the SLS now, as everybody was raving about the R8 last year. The new kid gets all the attention.

    The R8 is excellent of course but the technical problem of fitting a modern DCT is a big minus.
