    Re: R8 debut countdown...

    So.....
    420hp-I thought it was gonna be more
    Rtronic-is this DSG?
    So no chance V10 available from start?
    guys on audiworld saying its 3400lbs, thats heavier then i thought...
    hmmmm....

    Re: R8 debut countdown...

    3.71 kg per bhp
    235/40 size tyres at the front and up to 285/35 at the rear
    from a standstill to 100 km/h in 4.6 seconds and reaches a top speed of 301 km/h

    Re: R8 debut countdown...

    gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous!!!!! amazing design, and a big lesson to porsche and bmw design center!! well done! and boy , 4.6sec and 300kph from the v8 is great.
    kreso! is this rtronic a kind of dsg or a standard tip?

    Re: R8 debut countdown...

    R-Tronic is pure sequential manual gearbox. As I said already 100 times there will not be S-Tronic(DSG) in R8 or in fact in any R or RS Audi!
    Yes, V10 version with 510hp will come in 12-14 months. It will be available only with R-Tronic.
    Track times will be very close to Gallardo's(MY2006,520hp) but, Gallardo is still faster!
    Point here is little bit different-this car competitor is 997 Carrera S, Aston Martin V8 Vantage etc.
    Audi is not competing against F430, Gallardo or 997 Turbo!
    But, I know what I am talking about when saying that this R8 is truly excellent car!

    Re: R8 debut countdown...

    Dimitri,
    R-Tronic is refined version of e.gear!
    Are you getting R8 as well?

    Thus, the R8 (420hp) is close to the Gallardo's track times but slightly slower? The R10 (510hp) should then be faster than the Gallardo?

    he was saying track time of the v10 will be close to gallardo, not v8

    Re: R8 debut countdown...

    We have still to see much more, but, from the first figures, the R8 has stated new standards in the "997s" segment. I'd really love they could develop (maybe they already did) new standards in the F430 and 997T segment, meanwhile increasing the performance of the Gallardo.

    Very interesting, I can't wait to know more, to test a unit, even purchasing one (it depends a lot on the weight, final looks, interior and equippement)....maybe it's worth changing from a 997S to a R8, but, in principle, I personally expected a bit more....still have to make an oppinion (mainly because I think that the central engine will give a superb handling)

    Re: R8 debut countdown...

    anyone noticed the gallardo steering wheel???
    being part of a big group has it pros and cons...

    Re: R8 debut countdown...

    By the way Kreso, Tank you very, very much for your imput

    Re: R8 debut countdown...

    No, actually R8(V8) will be very close to Gallardo's track times! But, at then same time as Audi introduces V10 Gallardo will get FSI version of its V10 with around 550hp and even more refined chassis!
    Guys, Audi is owning Lamborghini and Gallardo will always be a top of R8!
    But, that does not make R8 a less a true sports car IMHO!

    Re: R8 debut countdown...

    yah, thanks kreso
    i'm a little disappointed to tell you the truth with the specs but the car looks great, looking forward to finding out confirmation on the V-10.

    kreso, is it confirmed that the G will have the 550hp upgrade and direct injection? if yes, when?

    Re: R8 debut countdown...

    Dimitri,
    It is reliable rumor!
    Frankfurt 2007 is target, delivery around end of 2007...

    That will be crucial for the power output of the F430-successor. The more horses Lamborghini puts under the hood of the next Gallardo, the better.

    If Lambo sorts out the gearing (it is horrendous in the current G), the 550 bhp version is going to pretty much be the sports car king - which is good for both F and P effort.

    Definetely the way to go, Dimitri!

    And if Audi is clever, you will even have the chance to order the "SE-style-two-tone-look"...


    ... for a little extra money of course.

    Re: R8 debut countdown...

    Thanks KresoF1 great work

    Re: R8 debut countdown...

    I just saw the video....

    The R8 looks awesome!

    Let's see more data about performance, interior pictures in the reality, prices and delivery times

    In any case, a masterpieice!

    By the way, a very good Audi video page!

    Re: R8 debut countdown...

    Control I'm here

    Re: R8 debut countdown...

    What about pricing? Anyone hear yet?

    Re: R8 debut countdown...

    What an amazing car this is!!!

    I am in love with the design, wheels, exterior , interior and even with the performance of the "normal' v8.....BUT!!!

    Is there any soundclips of the engine???, will it sound something similar as the Gallardo???....I hope it has a unique and very sporty sound...

    WHAT WILL BE THE PRICE ????, FOR THE NORMAL V8 I MEAN

    Great info thanks to Kreso and the rest rennteamers !!
