    Re: Audi R8 V10 Plus (2017 model) - Short Review

    McLaren on Corsa tyres. So a bit unfair. Most impressed with the Turbo S performance. It's such a sleeper compared to the other two.


    Re: Audi R8 V10 Plus (2017 model) - Short Review

    The Turbo S is a bit too much of a sleeper, especially regarding the emotional part.

    But who cares unless you are at the track? All modern sport cars are so fast for the road it doesn't really matter. What counts is how much fun you have...


    Re: Audi R8 V10 Plus (2017 model) - Short Review

    I would never change my RS for a Turbo S (because of the fun factor ) .  I still have lots of respect for the Turbo S as it is very fast , and it is king of ambivalent that on the track the autobahn confortable cruiser is actually faster then the track oriented '' hard core'' car  .

    Of course the 991 Turbo S is a fantastic driving machine and a very good track car with the right tires but at the end of the day, people need to ask themselves what they want. For me, the Turbo S would have been a perfect daily driver and  maybe a very good track car if I planned to be on the track often. Not for serious track racing but that occasional and more serious than causal track fun.

    What I needed was a weekend toy car. The Turbo S is not a good weekend toy car if you don't get to drive it often and the emotional part is important. 

    When I enter my 991 GTS Cab and start the engine and actually drive it, I get goosebumps. Even at lower speeds. Same goes to my R8, this is where I actually get (almost) an orgasm. Smiley Smiley

    The Turbo S is an amazing driving machine but it just wasn't enough to make me happy, especially because I was driving this car only on weekends.

    Yes and no. I would want the maximum performance available with the right amount of emotional enjoyment as well.

    Looking at Porsche, I think the GT3 RS offers the best mix right now, followed by the GT4 and the 991.1 GTS models. I also love the 918 but I think the 918 is in a completely different league of it's own.

    Re: Audi R8 V10 Plus (2017 model) - Short Review

    As already reported I have signed the contract for an Audi R8 V10 Plus 14 days ago and got the car delivered 1 week ago.

    The car was originally equipped with the standard 19-inch wheels and was „decorated with beautiful“ stripes.

    I arranged to get the stripes removed and ordered 20-inch wheels with Y-spoke in Anthracite immediately.

    Today the 20 inch wheels were mounted. A clearly visible difference I think.  Personally I like the 20-inch wheels of course, but as always it’s a matter of personal taste.

    However, with the eye-catching color and the black carbon applications, the black wheels fit very well. This is a must. No way out.smiley

    For comparison here again 2 live pics with the 19-inch and 20-inch wheels. What’s your opinion about?

    The equipment is almost complete but unfortunately I only have the 73-liter tank and not the very good laser light.yes But the LED headlights provide good light as well. Nevertheless, I would have preferred the laser light.

    My first experience I will like to tell after some time. However, Christian has written such a comprehensive and thoroughly review one can add almost nothing.kiss My first impressions absolutely agree with his experiences. It's a very entertaining car and much more emotional than my 997.2 Turbo S ever was.blush

    Even my neighbors are involuntarily get entertained every morning after a cold start. As I learned today, it’s absolutely impossible to prevent this infernal noise (cold start with open flaps) or to change the control software. Same as Lamborghini Huracan.heart

    For reasons of emission regulations, the catalysts have to be heated as quickly as possible and this is only workable with open flaps, I was told.

    My neighbors must either live with it or I can soon buy there houses at a low price. Since I am in the real estate business, this would be a pleasant side effect.indecisionindecision

    Seriously, the sound is incredible and the 10 Zyl. n/a engine is probably the last of its kind. Attached some pics of today.

    Congrats  Conny! wink Absolutely no comparison with the 20" black wheels... the 19" were so... 2015 indecision no seriously, they looked a bit too small for such a sporty car, and the black color in the wheels with the red car... what can I say, you nailed it! fits the R8 so well with all the other black elements it has like black wing, black side intakes, black front and read fascia, etc... the wheels matches it all together.

    That is exactly what I was thinking... the only contradicting thought is if the 20" wheels also come with unacceptable ride / tramlining / noise side effects, and this will largely depend on the roads you usually drive.  Many cars just drive nicer with the smaller wheel options.  But looks? As apias said.

    Re: Audi R8 V10 Plus (2017 model) - Short Review

    I just watches this morning "TopGear" and the test of the new R8. Sabine Schmitz was giving hard time to that car in Laguna Secca. Amazing - I don't have any words for it - really amazing car! Actually - the TopGear Car also was like yours Conny - red/black rims. It looks adorable. I would take exact same config!

     

     


    Re: Audi R8 V10 Plus (2017 model) - Short Review

    Thanks a lot for the good wishes, guys.kiss

    The R8 is relatively small, compared with a sedan. In the garage he is almost completely hidden behind my 7 Series. Nevertheless, the R8 is 4 centimeters wider (measured without mirrors) than the 7 Series!! no
    This shouldn't underestimated when maneuvering.broken heart

    So far as I have experienced by now there is no additional noise or limitations in comfort. Of course, this could change when the tires are worn more. Will see...
