I highly, highly doubt it. Weight distribution, 150 extra horsepower, and countless other refinements (engine and transmission, torque vectoring and hydraulic engine mounts, etc) are reasons why that is likely impossible, pretty much regardless. I mean, there's a full 2 second difference in 0-60 times between the two, as well. If the Type R has no chance at high speed, and gets creamed at low speeds as well, how can it possibly make up the difference in handling over one of the better handling German cars out there? I don't think there's a tire out there that'll do that.
