Default So my boss bought a 2019 AMG GT R

And he wants to "play"

This is Mercedes powerhouse. A 4.0L 577 HP Bi turbo monster. Do I stand a chance with my bone stock A8 non Z51 2019 Stingray? On paper we're not that far apart. The GTR's 0-60 is 3.5 to my 3.7. He's nearly at 3700 lbs to my 3300. I'm thinking I'm up for the challenge. Although those turbos could destroy me.

Yes, with a simple tune that turns up those turbos, he could be 700 hp. A simple tune-up on your vette might get you 30 extra hp.
