Not Sportauto but from Autozeitung
Golf GTI 35 edition vs Renault Megane RS Trophy
Wow, just wow. That Megane RS Trophy is slaughtering most well established sports car around a track!
It is already faster than the Scirocco R, so no surprise. It's a beast.
8.04 min - Porsche Boxster S PDK (981) - 315 hp, 1405 kg
^Slower than the RS5, that surprised me because the Boxster is such a polished performer.
I'll tell you as soon as I get the magazine.
Next Supertest: Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4
Ring-time expectations? Mine is 7.30 min.
I'm expecting 7:25-7:30.
Imagine shocking us all with a 7:10 hahahahahahaha
The magazine will be out on Friday, so no.
7.25 min - Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4 (700 hp, 1794 kg)
Oh my... that's a sensational time. It trounces just about everything - including the LFA NE by a whole 10 secs - and is much faster than I expected given its weight. A great result for the big Lambo. Drat.
Well, well. Just makes you wonder what time would be achieved IF they did the same thing which was done with Corvette or GTR in their "factory nurburgring laps". Playing with tyres and settings, driven by the test drivers who know the cars inside and out making dozens of laps just till this one, the golden one comes out.
Great job indeed... Pity that the car is ugly as an annual income tax...
