Part 2: Audi R8 vs McLaren 570S Track Race


In Part 2 of our supercar showdown, we put the Audi R8 and the McLaren 570S through the toughest test yet: a standing start hotlap of Killarney Racetrack.

With more power and all wheel drive, on paper, the Audi looks like it has this showdown wrapped up. But the McLaren, feeling a bit like the underdog can hit back with its razor sharp handling and an incredibly stiff chassis.

We lined them up for one last challenge, with Ashley Oldfield at the wheel.
