    Unfortunately, I will not go since my wife and I go to friends wedding... But, my brother will go so, there will be some pics next week.

    Re: R8 debut countdown...

    I would have loved to go if I had the chance.

    Are you kidding me a wedding? Tell your wife you're not feeling too well and have to run to ER, it works believe me .

    Re: R8 debut countdown...

    Ron,
    It could work but, this is my best friend. I already explain to him that his wedding is on the worst possible date...
    Since he is a sportscar enthusiast as we are he know that he owns me big time!

    Do not worrie, my brother is sports journalist so, he will take lots of pics and press material as well. I will post them next week after small PS work.
    So, tomorrow we will see(I already saw it...) final R8 look and specs. I think you will agree with me that Audi did excellent "internet gorilla marketing" on R8 as well as taking the whole Paris car show for them...

    Re: R8 debut countdown...

    we are counting on you for the pics kreso!!

    Re: R8 debut countdown...

    Dimitri,
    This is in my brother hands...
    Regarding R8 some other Audi forums will have direct live link tomorrow at 20.30h CET. I think this answers pretty much question who is involved directly with Audi...
    Some R8 features were great suprise for me but, I do not like some thinks about it as well...
    We will discuss it from thursday...

    Re: R8 debut countdown...

    The wait is killing me. I've been in front of my monitor for the last couple of hours..


    Re: R8 debut countdown...

    While we wait..design wise, how does anyone here think the R8 compares with the Aston Martin V8 Vantage..?

    Re: R8 debut countdown...

    still no pics...

    Re: R8 debut countdown...

    much better handling, build quality, acceleration, sportier although not prettier

    Re: R8 debut countdown...

    Agreed.

    Eventhough the AMV8 is front-mid engined, the R8 is true mid-engined. Build quality is out of question : Audi vs Aston. The R8 also has a more powerful engine (more horsepower with slightly smaller displacement). But the AMV8, oh, so beautiful.

    Their being in the same price bracket, how to choose..how to choose..

    Re: R8 debut countdown...

    I say R8 for sure....
    Check out this picture....
    look anything like this kreso?....from road and track

    Re: R8 debut countdown...

    Saw that picture too, and wondered the same thing. Especially the headlights, they look amazing..!

    Re: R8 debut countdown...

    Guys, where are the LEDs below main beams?
    Front licence plate will go...where(in EU)?

    Re: R8 debut countdown...

    i was thinking about how people wonder how they can let the R8 so close to the gallardo and then i think if people got the gallardo for performance only then they might as well go for the Z06. Point being people will buy the gallardo because they want a lamborghini not because it is good performance for the money. Its the overall package...

    Re: R8 debut countdown...

    I know the shape of the headlights in the Road and Track pic above is wrong, but I hope the housing would look something like that.

    Agreed about the R8 vs Gallardo, and 2007/2008 will see a facelifted G with direct-injection 5.2L V10, to make room for a V10 R8 (or R10) with slightly less horsepower..

    Re: R8 debut countdown...

    Well guys, this is what we have been waiting years for...It will only be hours now....

    Re: R8 debut countdown...

    yeah but always the last moments seems longer ...
