Wasn't comparing in all honesty. I just drove a LP560-2 right before the Audi. Practically the same engine and performance. The R8 is a lot more tame in comparison. The transmission is a completely different story. I would definitely be buying a 6 speed R8No wonder an Audi R8 compared to a 2012 Nissan GTR with an Alpha tune seemed slow. Really can't compare the two in performance aspects.
