CLA45 AMG Vs. R8 V8

Now I know many people determined the CLA wasn't worth the money and you should just listen to Consumer Reports and buy a nice Accord...

But I challenge anyone out there, to show me ONE trim level of Accord that will give an Audi R8 a run for its money. From what I found on a quick glance around the net, the R8 V8 is good for a 0-60 of 4.3 and a 1/4 of 12.5. The CLA AMG is good for a 0-60 of 5.0 and a 1/4 of 13.3. (2013 accord sedan is good for a 6.1/14.3)From a roll race, it took a bit of time for this R8 to start pulling on the CLA and I think aerodynamics was a major factor here. Still, that is one impressive 4 cylinder.


The CLA45 AMG also costs a boat load of cash for a car in that class (just under 50 grand) but hey, its an AMG benz.
