    Audi A8 6.0 vs. 996 C4S

    Yesterday on a german autobahn: Acceleration from 180 km/h to 250 km/h between me (996 C4S, 320 PS) and that guy`s A8 6.0 (12 cylinder, 450 PS, 580 NM, 1995 kg, tiptronic) was exactly the same!

    Need that 997 TT soon ...

    Re: Audi A8 6.0 vs. 996 C4S

    you'd blow him away in the TT lol

    You could also blow him away by just going faster than 250kph (Audi has a limiter)

    Re: Audi A8 6.0 vs. 996 C4S

    lol, forgot about that hahahaaha

    Re: Audi A8 6.0 vs. 996 C4S

    That Audi is only one chip away from doing 200mph!

    Its hard to match W-12 hp with a little 6.

    Its impressive that the 996 C4 kept up with it,
    I think that a 997S Carrera 2 would pull away.

    Because of that i reported only the acceleration till 250 km/h :-)

    At least he let me go and we greeted when i left the autobahn. By the way, this A8 costs 118.000 EUR in germany!

    Re: Audi A8 6.0 vs. 996 C4S

    Was it the A8 or the A96?

    Re: Audi A8 6.0 vs. 996 C4S

    A9 from Munich to Nürnberg. Did you see us? :-)

    Gotta love it. Greding to Nuernberg Feucht is just a great stretch (which was even better before they limited the speed through the curves). I've had a few nice chance encounters on that road, years ago when I hit that Autobahn on a regular base in an Audi S8. There was usually a Porsche and/or BMW to group up with and head down the road in a very civilized, smooth manner at 250+ kmh (well the Audi speedo displayed 280 but knowing the limiter it must have been 250, yes?). Coming from Nuernberg, the Porsches usually lost me in the Gredinger bends though... 4wd is nice but the body movement didn't quite inspire enough confidence in cowardly me to follow them through at 240.

    Enjoy the road.

    Same on the A3 between Cologne and Frankfurt. Amongst others in an A8 4.2...

    Re: Audi A8 6.0 vs. 996 C4S

    The "chip" and the turbo's were what was so great about the old audi S4. The S4 with a chip, new turbo's and open air intakes (a different exhaust and headers) could put out something like 500hp. All for about 15k worth of work. With a chip and just the air intakes it could blow out 350ish hp. It was a bad little car just waiting to be tuned.

    Re: Audi A8 6.0 vs. 996 C4S

    I would be sad not to be faster then a big family car with my Porsche...
