Default Audi R8

Does anyone else like it? I love it!

Read it in the TG mag, and fell in love with it, first sight, but what do you think of it? Is it right to be the same asking price of a lambo and even aston?

I think it is!

I think its the best looking car I've ever seen. A while ago my dad was considering a Porsche Turbo, Mercedes SLR or Lamborghini Gallardo but decided he doesn't need a super car (and can't afford the SLR) so I told him he should check out the R8 but he thinks its ugly. lol.

Well, its audi's take on high performance full size sedan, and while it doesnt keep up with most others, its still a bad ass car! Much faster than most other production cars none the less! I would love to have one myself, though i must say, if i had enough to buy one, i would by something else....

Sweet car though!

I love it, it's derived from the famous R8 LeMans winner. Hopefully they will introduce a version based on the R10 TDi (V10 turbodeisel), also a LeMans winner.

Reminiscent of the Bugatti Veyron (in looks). I would say it is good looking but not great. I wouldn't mind having one but as Pbasil said for the money there are a lot of other cars I would buy.

What are you talking about? LOL there's nothing sedan about this, I think you mean the S8.

R8 looks like a badass TT to me.

Aesthetic wise, it's only so-so compare to other cars of that price range. Performance wise, it's only a more modified RS4 minus two doors & two seats & most people will have to sell their 1st born to afford it. then again, the underground price for a child now days is around 50-60K USD, assuming the child is healthy, have good family background(middle or upper class), still a virgin, and trainable. so i guess it'll cost most people their 1st, 2nd & 3rd born to get one for their garage.



btw, everything I mentioned regarding children is a joke.

Yeah the new Audi R8 is definitely one of the best looking coupes from Audi.

Michelle and I went running and saw one the other day...

it is veeery small.... F360 size but witht he rounded trunk it looks even smaller

Howerer I too loooove the design and specs on it... Audi FTW... may not be top dog but my type o car for sure...

I think the front it too low for having the new audi grill... it is trying to be a pointy aero look but doens't do it all the way... did sorta bother me...but in pics this is not so evident

the wheels/brakes are pure perfection...


headlights are a show stopper... over all it looks like the best thing ever to come out of audi and that is a huge compliment being that audi always had that bond look to me...

I am bothered by the engine displacement and the lack of performance... it should be an absolute winner... something's off... 4.2 isn't huge but it is the right size.... this shing should be forced somehow... prob just superchanged with 8-12lbs... that's all it needs... then this thing would pw3n ferraris... of course the way to go is prob good turbo with little lag but I am bias towards super

also 3500lbs is a bit heavy...

If I had loads of cash I'd buy THIS car, then I'd add superchr...

the engine window is car porn all the way
