2014 Nissan GT-R Track Pack vs 2014 Audi R8 V-10 Plus! – Head 2 Head Episode 33

On this episode of Head 2 Head, Motor Trend’s Carlos Lago pits the 2014 Nissan GT-R Track Pack against the 2014 Audi R8 V-10 Plus. Performance wise, both these all-wheel drive monsters represent the cream of the crop from their respective manufacturers. Nissan’s GT-R comes out of the gate swinging with it’s track pack, but the R8 packs a twin-clutch transmission as well as more power than previous R8’s. In between some dynamic testing & canyon carving, Randy Pobst weighs in with his two cents as he joins Carlos at the Streets of Willow racetrack. Does Audi’s V-10 goliath have what it takes to topple the legendary “Godzilla”?

  5. R8 has no turbos

  6. I got to say, as an Audi fan, it is impressive that the GTR can accelerate that quick with the engine in the front compared to the R8 that has "theoretically" a faster launch speed since the engine weighs on the back of the car (Massive acceleration bonus for the r8)

  7. I would choose a GT-R. It’s a great car.

  27. the nissan gtr is not a super car is just a sports car

  28. There’s nobody alive that is thinking about buying one of these that is going to say to themselves, "Damn, I was going to buy that R8, but dumbass6373 on YouTube, who drives their mother’s minivan, said it sucked, so I guess I’ll get that GTR instead".

    Just appreciate both for the nice cars that they are. Any car that can do 0-60 in 3 seconds is an engineering success. One doesn’t have to suck for the other to be appreciated, and these cars aren’t even geared towards the same market. There are very few people out there trying to decide between the two.

  36. Adapt’s GTR vs Rain’s R8

  37. GTR for me .. the r8 tends to want to stick it’s back end out on bends at high speeds plus the r8’s gearbox is just not reliable enough..

  38. These GTR and Audi fanboys are so cancerous, sorry I have to say it that way. Why can’t they just appreciate what amazing machines both of these cars are.
