    Hi Kreso,

    one answer could be to postpone delivery and wait for the R10

    Another option: the ABT package for the R8

    P.S.: Let's wait for the first track times. Maybe they will be convincing



    Markus,

    There are only two options for me:

    -get R8 as planned

    or

    -get RS4 instead

    Current state of mind? R..



    Just think of your driving experience in the R8! Is the RS4 comparable in terms of excitement? Of course, the RS4 is a very convenient car to use as a daily driver...



    Markus,

    R8 is in all different drive dynamics class from RS4. It is pretty much an amazing car in terms of high speed stability(both straight line and curves), traction(simply awsome!) and it is very, very friendly to the driver!"
    I will keep it since it is pretty different from 997 turbo.

    Forthcoming V10 version will be faster in straight line but, heavy as well and R8 is already heavy car...
    What is interesting is that R8 doesn feel heavy when you drive it. It feels composed! But, as I already said first thing that I noticed is that R8 is in acceleration terms not any faster then RS4(subjective feeling despite lower seating position).



    V10 will be heavier, because it will have more equipment - at least two fire extinguishers

    Im disappointed with that Audi still didnt announced TT 2.0T with quattro. I will have to look for alternatives - mybie 335ci or Z4 3.0is or mybie Cayman / 987...

    VGA18: Happy B-day



    @Shakal:

    Sorry that you are still waiting for TT 2.0 quattro... Maybe 335i coupe is a good alternative...

    Happy Birthday Ziga!

    Hvala Kreso

    335i coupe is nice car, with nice rims (M6 rims) and with 2 × 2 exhausts (wanna be M ) looks very good, performances are great and it is very fun to drive (RWD).

    Are you thinking to change your R8 order ? If I`ve seen right, R8 in this test had manual transmition, so maybe driver didnt get full potencial from a car. Im sure results of R8 with Rtronic would be better

    Actually, R-Tronic cars are little bit slower... Do not ask me why... I just know it. More info is in Gallardo MY08 thread-R8 suffers from same sequential setup...

    Any way R8 will stay with me. Car is amazing at drive dynamics and it very driver friendly.

    One question for you-why not S3?! That car is a bomb! I drove one few days ago and it is the best hot hatch IMHO.

    Re: Audi R8 test in German AMS

    BTW,
    in tommorrow's Auto Bild is comparison test R8 vs. 997C4S.

    http://www.autobild.de/heftarchiv/vorsch...6SJS6Vrow%3D%3D

    Numbers will be posted here tommorrow...

    I was hoping that it wasn't anything nasty because I looked it up on the net glad it wasn't anything offensive .

    Kreso,

    S3 is very impressive car, but as far as I know next generation A3 will be introduced next year and that means current S3 will look old.. Because Im buying car for at least 3 - 4 years , I would much more prefer TT with S3 engine and quattro, because TT is new model and defenetly there wont me next generation in that time I would have it..

    But its hard to say which car will look better, S3 when next gen. A3 will be introduced or TT when R8 will be on roads - somewhere Ive seen picture with TT parked alongside R8 and TT looked like... VW Beetle

    The left R8 looks much meaner than the right one. Is this a special body kit or a R10 prototype















    (hahahahahaha )

    Re: Audi R8 test in German AMS

    Hey Markus,

    Are they really similar looking to you

    Well, not for me. In real life R8 is not any bigger then TT-just lower and wider... I really like the way R8 looks. And R8 is also very,very friendly to drive really fast unlike 997 turbo. In fact R8 and 997tt combo is pretty much ultimate one for me. 599 is way too expensive and I do not like front engine two seaters(although 599 is amazing car on its one).

    Also, I am very interested to see how will 997GT2 final specs look like

    Sorry, I was just kidding

    On the other hand: the front of the TT looks a bit similar to the R8.

    Having said that, the R8 looks so much better in real life than on all those pictures (and certainly much, much nicer than a Audi TT). I like the R8 a lot. However, I am also a bit surprised by these AMS test results. Maybe their test car was still very new? I know from my Audi that some 10.000km or so do make a difference in case of the NA Audi engines

    Re: Audi R8 test in German AMS

    In today's 'Auto-Bild': R8 vs 9974S (standard with 355 hp).
    R8 results:
    0-100 = 4,5 sec
    0-200 = 15,5 sec
    topspeed = 295 km/h

    997 results:
    0-100 = 4,6 sec
    0-200 = 16,0 sec
    topspeed = 294 km/h

    Final result: Porsche won with 470 : 448 points (and won all 3 single contests)

    brgds, Tom

    Re: Audi R8 test in German AMS

    Kreso,

    I found this picture... I think TT looks worse on this picture because of angle where photo was taken. But in flesh TT looks good, so R8 must be awesome

    Re: Audi R8 test in German AMS

    Ziga,

    Go for TT 3.2 with manual gearbox-just add short shifter as an option(new option for all manual TT's!).

    I know that you like S-Tronic(DSG) but, IMHO manual is way more fun...

    I saw today new TT 3.2 in Blood Orange(S3 color) with Titanium 19"(RS4 like!) with Black/Signal Orange leather inside-it looked really good!

    The R8 numbers in this test are acceptable, I would argue

    The TT 3.2 is a very good car for its price

    I had the chance to do some laps on the track in this car last fall and I was positively surprised by this car's qualities.

    Acceptable, but still far off the official numbers.

    Re: Audi R8 test in German AMS

    Official R8 numbers are

    0-100km/h: 4.6s
    0-200km/h:14.9s
    Max: 301km/h

    Max speed in AB is typo(295km/h instead 301km/h).

    Okay, I thought it was 14.6 sec to 200 kph. In this case the test data is fine.

    I expected 14.6s... But, Stefan try to arrange a test drive of R8(manual, since R-Tronic is well-not good) and you will find out as I did how friendly R8 is to the driver. Traction as awsome, roadholding excellent and it is more or less fast enough. ISO and Slalom(both 18m and 36m) are at 997GT3 level-with P Zero tires, not with Corsas...

    Re: Audi R8 test in German AMS

    BTW, In Auto Bild test R8 was 2s faster then 997C4S on Eurospeedway track...

    Yes, like I've said in January. A friend of mine, who got to drive the R8 right after New Year said that the car was really effortless to drive, easy as pie. I think that will prove to be its strong suit, the ability to make Schumachers out of drivers with more money than brains .

    Re: Audi R8 test in German AMS

    kreso what is the price of he r8 compared to the c4s?

    Re: Audi R8 test in German AMS
