People who own either one or the other will likely fanboy about that particular car and say it's better because "insert reason here" but the truth is they're both animals. Just the 8 is like a complete mental case when fully unleashed.

But going back on topic..

Turboed Barras can get into the 7 sec region with reliability. I donít know of any GT/XR8 that can even get into the 10ís
Boost + Nissan gtr 33 = WIN
