Yup TireRack is very helpful.
Autocross would be fine. However I took my car out on Infenion Raceway for a "parade lap"; still got upto about 65mph in areas but my tires were all gummed up after a few laps (I didn't have a chance to set my tire pressures perfectly, so I think that attributed as well). As for spirited driving, I do pretty aggressive mountain runs about every other week and the v12's have the same grip everytime. Of course it helps having my koni's on full stiff to utilize the tires the most, but you get the idea

SlowScoobie- I have it. It comes unpainted as shown, the quality is not that great though. However, after a little TLC (wet sanding and paint) it can look really good. Also to be honest, the outer portions seem to have a much thicker area in comparison to the stock one. Meaning the stock one has the curved lip on top with a flat bottom like this __\ and the one you linked has more of a curved bottom portion (if that makes sense). Ill try and post up pics of the area I am referring to.
Look at the outer portions and how they look saggy:
