You'll get to see the first-generation R8 passing the third-gen Clio RS right after the French compact goes through the Carousel bend. That was the point when the guy behind the wheel of the spicy compact went into maximum attack mode.
The guy pushes the little Renault, which is animated by a naturally aspirated 2.0-liter four-cylinder mill to the limit while working to keep up with the V10 supercar.
And since Ring Taxi drivers rarely take their machines to 100 percent of their potential (the safety reasons preventing these are way too obvious to be discussed here), we ended up with one hell of a tight chase.
If you happen to be in a hurry, you should know that the chase we mentioned above kicks off at the 5:40 point of the clip.
Since we're talking this kind of Ring stunts, we'll remind you that earlier today we showed you a piece that qualifies for the "mother of Green Hell battles" title.
The adventure we're talking about involved a Porsche 911 going after a Mercedes-AMG GT. And the beasts weren't present on the infamous German circuit in street trim. Instead, we got to see their racing incarnations duking it out, with the 911 GT3 R chasing the Mercedes-AMG GT3 in a majestic piece of track action.
