    Video: The New Audi R8 (the real thing)

    Not a spy video this time, but the real thing

    What a sound
    http://www.audiworld.com/news/06/audi-r8-video/

    Re: Video: The New Audi R8 (the real thing)

    I saw it last night! You like it Temm? Don't you?

    Re: Video: The New Audi R8 (the real thing)

    I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT!!

    The real thing is much better than I had hoped it would be.
    Why anyone would buy a Gallardo now is beyond me, isn't that right Kreso?

    Re: Video: The New Audi R8 (the real thing)

    Well... Better performance? I think so! Best chassis in all sport cars currently on the market(we need to see and feel Magnetic Ride in R8)? Another YES!
    So, Gallardo is above R8... But, that does not stoping me on having both of them...

    As the 599 basically shares the same magnetic ride system, I think we will this system also in the F430 successor. :1

    That seems the way to go for future chassis development.

    Re: Video: The New Audi R8 (the real thing)

    Agree!
    Magnetic Ride is a MUST for any R8 buyer as is R-Tronic IMHO.
    Mid-engine sport car... That is the way to go!

    Re: Video: The New Audi R8 (the real thing)

    Dimitri dont worry !!!!, the engine sound is phenomenal !!! , no audi tt sound

    I just love it !!!!!

    Kreso do you think there will be a sport exhaust system as an option???....although this engine note is really gallardo style, I really like !!!

    Re: Video: The New Audi R8 (the real thing)

    No, there wont be extra sport exhaust. And you simply do not need one IMHO.

    Re: Video: The New Audi R8 (the real thing)

    I agree with Kreso, this is the sport exhaust

    If you listen to the video at 1:33, the exhaust system is so open that the exhaust rips the air, just like a fighterjet when it lights the afterburner.

    Can't ask for more than that....

    yeah !!!! I know , but well it would also be great to refine that sound or at least do it more high ptched....

    At least i can say that the R8 has passed my expectations, including the engine note


    temm I love the last scene at 1min51sec....that sound at high revvs....

    and thanks again kreso !!!!

    I agree! I was very surprised when I saw it today how much better it looks in real life than in photos... It's yummy

    Because some prefer the 2006 Gallardo's V10 engine and exhaust notes?

    Re: Video: The New Audi R8 (the real thing)

    Cool car definately, but we don't know how it matches up performance wise (not paper) against similarly priced machines. Amazing how a simple video creates so much enthusiasm. I guess kudo's to Audi Marketing!

    Re: Video: The New Audi R8 (the real thing)

    IMO the new R8 launch represents Very Good news for all Porsche fans because along with the new M3 will force Porsche to pump up the specs for all the range. Otherwise they will start to lose customers.

    They need to add DSG, 20-25 more bhp and the "magnetic ride".

    Re: Video: The New Audi R8 (the real thing)

    Can someone explain "Magnetic Ride"? Sorry, I'm not familiar with it.

    The spring and damper set-up is stiff in order to deliver maximum driving dynamics, while still providing a quite astonishing level of ride comfort. This is particularly true when the 'Audi magnetic ride' adaptive damper system is chosen as an alternative to the standard gas-filled shock absorbers.

    The reason for this is that these shock absorbers employ an innovative technology. Instead of the conventional damper fluid, a magnetorheological fluid is used - in other words, a fluid whose viscosity can be influenced by an electromagnetic field. This effect enables the damping characteristic to be influenced electronically at will and instantaneously, by applying a voltage to the electromagnets.

    Audi magnetic ride uses this property to deliver the correct damping forces in every driving situation, thus optimising ride comfort and driving dynamics. A computer equipped with sensor technology determines the prevailing driving situation in a matter of milliseconds. Drivers can choose from two driving programs depending on whether they want to drive in a highly sporty style - with the magnetorheological fluid adjusted to a low viscosity - or with the emphasis more on ride comfort.

    I made the same question this afternoon, and was gently replied. If you want, go to the thread "R8 options", and there
    you'll find some good explanations!

    Re: Video: The New Audi R8 (the real thing)

    Road and Track is showing a R8 convertible scheduled in 2009-2010.

    I love the looks and sound of the car. I am not sure about the dark side panel. Is that ot distinguish it from Audi models?
