An unexpected comparison that sort of works (w/video)

I initially thought that this comparison between was bizarre. The Honda Civic Type R Mugen has a 4-cylinder that pumps out 239 bhp with a claimed 0-100 km/h time of 6.0 seconds. It’s opponent, the Audi R8 V10, uses a 10-cylinder with an output of 518 bhp and a claimed 0-100 km/h time of 3.9 seconds. The prices of both of these vehicles differ drastically, but how about the performance? Watch the video after the jump.

OK, so these cars don’t necessarily compare, but on the twisty bits the Type R could actually keep up which was a bit shocking to me.
