Car versus bike. Bike versus car. You'll see it before and you'll see it again, but here is the latest take, with a twist... 

Does Audi make quicker cars or motorcycles?

OK, that's slightly tongue in cheek, but you see what we did there. Audi owns Ducati, so we thought we'd take the two mainstream sports products from both of their respective ranges and see how they get on, head-to-head.

In the four-wheeled corner, then, the Audi R8. Not the Plus version, just the regular R8, with four-wheel drive, launch control, and a 5.2-litre naturally aspirated V10 engine to be getting on with.

And in the two-wheeled lane, a Ducati Panigale V4. The new four-cylinder sports bike from Ducati, which has only 1103cc, but still pushes out 211bhp. And it, too, has launch control. Goody gumdrops.

So let's see which is quickest to 60mph, 100mph, across a standing 1/4 mile and a half mile. It's going to be the bike, right?
