2018 Car and Driver Lightning Lap

Link: https://www.caranddriver.com/feature...tning-lap-2018

Some real upsets this year:
  • GLC63 faster than RS5
  • RS3 criticized for being undertired even with track pack
  • Accord Sport 2.0T on all seasons faster than BRZ PP (but slower than BRZ tS)
  • Corvette ZR1 faster than Huracan Performante, 720S, and Ford GT
  • Type R faster than STi RA
  • Stinger GT Brembos done after 1 lap due to poor OEM pad, fixed with OEM EU spec pad

Mustang faster around the track than M5, 718, TT RS.

That's pretty good considering price

What I'd like to see as a comparison is the same test done but with average joe drivers. These times show you the full potential of a car, but that would show you just how attainable that potential is for the people who actually buy them.

All times will be DNF, most cars are off track at turn 1

one or two would DNS, as they wouldn't be able to get the clutch going.

I think its a decent car, but lets be honest Any of these cars that didn't Run Michelin Cup 2 Tires would be handicapped compared to the Ford.

Those tires compared to say the Pilots 4s on the Cayman make a world of difference.
