The first couple races show the Camaro and R8 going at it and the Camaro pulls a few car lengths rather easily. The R8 V10 simply is detuned a bit from the factory compared to its Gallardo sibling. In stock form it has 465 horsepower at the wheels so obviously the Camaro has more power. However, with a tune alone the V10 R8 can get up to 531 horsepower at the wheels which would make the race far more interesting. R8 owner, speaking to you, get a tune!
The GT500 also beats the R8 V10 easily and appears to be slightly quicker than the Camaro although it is hard to say without seeing them race. Considering its absurd power from the supercharged 5.8 liter which also is underrated from the factory this outcome is no surprise. The R8 V10 simply needs a tune as being detuned to protect the Gallardo puts it at too much of a disadvantage versus the stout competition here.
