While the Audi R8 is beginning to show its gray hairs after being on the market for years now, its competitors are stepping up to the plate with MUCH sportier and improved offerings.
Two cars that the R8 unseated from the running as it climbed its way to the top of sports car status were the Chevrolet Corvette and Jaguar XKR. Now that the Corvette can be optioned with the Ultimate Package and Jaguar has rolled out the XKR-S edition, a German publication decided to let them square up and decide who's best.
While the Z06 Ultimate may not have the high-quality interior of the R8, it does make up for this in terms of weight savings and performance. Remember, the Ultimate Package equips the Z06 with the ZR1's carbon ceramic big brake kit, larger wheels and tires, and an advanced cooling system
The Jaguar, on the other hand, is the best performer the marque has put together for the marketplace. Boasting a 550 horsepower powerplant and a slew of other performance modifications to make it a more agile sports car, the Jaguar is commanding all-new attention. The problem is that Jaguar still seems to remain an also-ran in this segment as cars like the Corvette and R8 offer a better formula for success.
