Great choice of car! Did you own a Z in years gone by?
I too was very interested in the R8 before the GTR was launched. IMO not having a dual clutch gearbox (especially as VW invented it with borg warner)and serious lack of torque was the decider for me. Back in 08 I speced one up to the same level as a GTR and it needed another £15K in options.
I am still utterly blown away by the GTR after nearly 25 months of ownership.
