Video: Nissan GT-R Track Pack and Audi R8 V10 Plus hit Willow Springs

While the 2014 Nissan GT-R can topple almost any other supercar on the planet in a track shootout, some have criticised it for its lack of involvement with the driver.

However, with the launch of the brand new 2014 Nissan GT-R Track Edition some of those issues about lack of involvement should be counteracted thanks to returned suspension, additional brake cooling ducts, the lack of rear seats and the selection of other improvements present in the car.

One car which is rarely criticised for its lack of involvement however, is the brand new 2013 Audi R8 V10 Plus and Motor Trend’s Carlos Lago and Randy Pobst headed to the infamous Willow Springs raceway and some tricky mountain roads to test out the capabilities of these two high-end supercars.

First off, the 2014 Nissan GT-R Track Edition features a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine delivering a total of 545hp and 463lb-ft of torque. Consequently, the 2014 Nissan GT-R Track Pack can hit 62mph in 3 seconds flat.

On the other hand, the 2014 Audi R8 V10 Plus costs almost $70,000 more than the GT-R and comes fitted with a 5.2-liter Lamborghini-derived V10 engine producing 550hp and 398lb-ft of torque. Combine that with a brand new 7-speed twin-clutch automatic transmission and the 2014 Audi R8 V10 Plus is one of the most potent supercars under the sun, but which is best?
