Video: Top Gear Tests Audi R8 V10 - Races Corvette ZR1

. Tuesday, November 24, 2009

In this week's episode of Top Gear (season 14, episode 2), Jeremy Clarkson get's behind the wheel of the Audi R8 5.2 FSI V10 and in the process, takes on a Corvette ZR1 around Top Gear's track. Chances are, this video will not be on YouTube for long, so watch while you can!

There are a few things that should be noted. Following this clip, Clarkson points out that the trip computer did indeed work (though, sadly it was too late for the German engineer). Also, the Stig took both cars around the test track and the Corvette ZR1 prevailed (R8 - 1:21.6, ZR1 - 1:20.4). However, Clarkson points out that in the hands of any other driver, the ZR1's numbers would not be the same. He says that his time in the ZR1 would be "5 minutes and dead."

Check out the clip of Jeremy Clarkson's review of the Audi R8 5.2 FSI V10 from his latest DVD "Duel."
