I read an article somewhere that the boss ran a faster lap time than the Audi R8 at Laguna Seca with the same driver. But the guy still sounds like an idiot.

It was the V8 Audi, not the V10.

Still thats good for a mustang or any production car, the R8 is no joke.

Eh, even though its several seconds under spec miata lap times, sebring looks like a pretty high speed track. Also, i found that the new spec miata lap time at sebring is 2:36 i believe. Here is a map of sebring:

Dude claims he was hitting 160 on the two long straights, and though i have no hard evidence to support this, i estimate spec miatas top speed to be only 110-115 on that straight. (i found a miata driver claiming 105 top speed, so added a bit for spec drivers). Right there for two long straights just the horsepower difference easily makes up that 6 seconds.

I hit about 120 (speedo indicated) on the back straight in my 99 stock engine at 6psi a few years ago, for reference.

Picture for fun:
