The race track time is relevant only if they are running the same suspension set-up - which they are not. An AUIII XR8, with an appropriate exhaust and no speed limiter, will out-run an XR6T on a tight racetrack due to the superior handling and similar straight line speed. I haven't seen one yet keep up with me in corners - and a few have tried. From all accounts the BA XR8 will shit on the XR6T - particularly on a 9 minute lap.
I hope to find out on Friday how good it is. My car is having a service and the dealer is trying to get me a drive of the new one they have just received.
