What's The Difference Between A Supercar And A Racing Supercar?

The V10 Audi R8 is a spectacular car. What else needs to be done to it to turn it into a racing car? What's the real differences between driving a supercar and a racing car?

Chris Harris from /DRIVE decided to find out, and took both the road-version V10 Audi R8 onto the closed Nurburgring track (!!!) with the V8 Audi R8 LMS Ultra Race Car.

The differences are stark: despite the fact that the race car has less power, it's more fun to drive thanks the the weight-shedding and engine tuning. While the Audi R8 road car is a vehicular weapon on the streets, nothing compares to a proper gentleman's racer on the track like the R8 LMS Ultra Race Car.
