    Anyone raced the new Audi R8

    Not much of a race but opened it up with the R8 for like 5 seconds, (wouldnt buy one they got a bit of a lagg of Tq n dnt pull hard till high rpm's) i started to barelly pull from him and he shut it down, nice car but its performance for price is not that impressive, 12.8 1/4 mile for a $120,000 car O yeah Audi claims 420hp 317tq and 3450 curb weight. But its a small V8 4.2 litre

    I dont know about Audi but i find those Eillise by Lotus to be a fun car to drive, they are not that fast, but they can handle.

    everyone jumping on the z06's dick..the audi r8 is a pure GT car..GT cars main focus isnt the 1/4...its handling/acceleration/speed/comfort. i could buy a civic for 3k and drop 100k into it to make it faster then a z06 and the r8..does it make the civic a better car the z06 and r8?

    Well put I would buy an R8 for that reason. They are damn nice cars a few people around here have one and they truly are amazing inside and out.

    you know it amazes me that audi took so long to create a true sports car I mean how can I take the TT seriously. people always seem surprised that audi can make a good sports car but people have to relize audi has been one of the most dominant companies in racing over the past decade.

    they also own lambo and VW i believe...so they have made true sports cars..just not under their name..or its something like that..lambo and audi are tied together somehow. But yeah your right..i was suprised also..especially how much of a disipointment the TT's have been...but if they end up making the r8 tdi v12...... watch out.

    The V12 version is going to be sick. I was a little disappointed when I saw the HP numbers.....and then I saw the ridiculous torque numbers! That car is going to be SICK on the streets!

    Never said i didnt like the R8 just that nothing is amazing about this car performance wise, it looks great but a bit over priced i think for a Top of the line sports car by Audi that at its best does high 12's But the new TDI should be impressive!! Lets see how much thats gona cost $$$$

    Actuall it's VW that owns everything. And Porshe is under the VW umbrella.

    Having owned an Audi S4, i can say that few cars can match the fit and finish of an Audi. They build some great cars.
