The new version of the Ducati Panigale has taken the Audi R8 V10 to task thanks to a recent video from Autocar.
Right from the start, most know that a hyperbike like the Panigale would be able to smoke most cars out there. But when Autocar raced the Panigale against the base R8 V10, the results were pretty interesting.
As far as specs go, the bike comes in with 211 bhp @ 13,000rpm, 91.5 lb-ft of torque @ 10,000rpm and a curb weight of 436.5 lbs. Opposite of the hyperbike is the R8 V10 that has 540 bhp @7,800rpm, 393 lb-ft @ 6,500rpm and a weight of 3615.5 lbs. Obviously, the R8 has more power, but the power to weight difference is massive.
