    My Lotus Exige S vs my Audi RS4

    Had some fun on the weekend, decided to drag race my RS4 and Lotus Exige S on the weekend. I was quite suprised with the outcome, the RS4 stuck to the Lotus and was neck to neck, consider that the Lotus is a 1.8 Inline-4 S/C motor with 220hp and the Audi is a 4.2 V8 with 420hp.

    The race took place rolling from first gear at around 40kmh/25mph. The two cars were exactly the same all the way to 200kmh/125mph, from there the Lotus' 5th gear the Audi started to pull. I'm still impressed with the Lotus like heck though. The Audi is one fast car

    PS. You will need Winzip and Quicktime to view these files.

    Enjoy!

    Yes, that is the Exige's exhaust note. It's so loud you can't even hear the RS4

    Yip, now you must know how loud that Exige is It's deafening even inside the car.

    Re: My Lotus Exige S vs my Audi RS4

    I never get tired of that sound
    The Exige is impressive, as always...

    Re: My Lotus Exige S vs my Audi RS4

    they were recorded from a cell phone that saves them in .mp4 format, how do I convert? Anyone have a program I can download?

    As far as I know youtube doesn't support this type of format?

    Re: My Lotus Exige S vs my Audi RS4

    Between the 997Scab and the RS4 what car do you think would be faster?

    Re: My Lotus Exige S vs my Audi RS4

    RS4 should be faster.... Trust me, it's a fast car and the engine is amazing! The first shipment was sold out VERY fast over here and I cant fing these cars anywhere now.
    Only one I could find was a black cabriolet and although its a good performing + good looking car, its not for me. That Cab should make hearing that V8 soundtrack even better though...

    Re: My Lotus Exige S vs my Audi RS4

    ....sorry, just a bit faster though...

    BTW, whats louder Mike, the Audi or PSE???

    I think the RS4 is SLIGHTLY faster than the 997S, but I'll need to put them side by side on the highway to find out

    PSE with the "mod" is much louder than the RS4.

    Re: My Lotus Exige S vs my Audi RS4

    OK, PSE + mod compared to F430

    I'd assume your RS4 has very low mileage so far? The car should open up once it has some miles on the clock!

    The F430 is much louder than the PSE even with the "mod" I will make a video of the 430 in a tunnel one weekend.

    The Audi has 2500km's on the odo

    The Lotus has 2200km.

    Re: My Lotus Exige S vs my Audi RS4

    Theres a loud RS4, a much louder Carrera S with PSE, a much louder (again) Ferrari F430, and a somewhere inbetween Lotus Exige S....+ a (again) loud Lamborghini LP640 coming soon; if I was your neighbour I'd have thrown all your windows out by now

    The Noble is also damn loud, about as loud as the Lotus!

    Re: My Lotus Exige S vs my Audi RS4

    Mike I am curious. How do you decide which car to drive? If you had to choose one to keep and sell the rest which one would you choose?

    Mike, which exhaust have you fitted to your Exige S? If you want to go out of your mind, try the Arqray Single tip titanium exhaust. It gets you thrown out of tracks here in the U.S..

    I prefer the car that has the most "fun factor". For me the Exige is way more fun to drive than the RS4. The RS4 is just a fast daily beater.

    Some more photo's of the RS4.

    Never heard of it? I don't think I would want my Exige much louder than it is now. At the moment my ears start to ache after long drives
