    Audi R8: V8 vs V10


    --


    Re: Audi R8: V8 vs V10

    I agree with the final comment.

    I did spec 2 R8s, a couple of weeks ago, just for fun, from German Audi site, and most of the equipment on V10 is standart so similarly specced V8 costs too close to V10.

    With additional 100 hp and 2 cyclinder, the extra cost worths it unless you find a second hand jahres wagen V8 R8.

    In the video and in the motoring press the V10 is "the Audi with the Lamborghini engine".

    IMO this is not very good for the image/engineering ability Audi is trying to promote with this car.

    Lamborghini probably tells the opposite to the Gallardo clients - they get the design and temperament of Lambo with the quality of Audi :)

    On the subject: I will take the V10, thank you.

    Definitely, Audi need to be complimented for producing these cars. But it would be more beneficial to the image they attempt to project if they came out with their own engine instead of a borrowed one. It could be a V12 for example.

    Huh... You got it wrong. Audi did not borrow 5.2 FSI V10 from Lamborghini. That engine was developed by Audi for usage in R8. Later on that engine ended in facelifted LP560-4 first. Even first Gallardo engine is totally Audi development.

    Next thing-exhaust note of R8 V10 and LP560-4... It is different. Yes, V10 sound but, different. R8 V10 sounds not so loud and more refined then raw LP560-4 note.


    Re: Audi R8: V8 vs V10

    Thanks for the information. But you see only few people know these facts.

    Even in the Press the V10 is referred to as the Lamborghini engine.

    True, just I know and have all the facts.

    IMHO 5.2 FSI in R8 is one of the best engines currently on the market. You need to try it(manual please since R Tronic is simply said not good enough) to get that truly special feeling.

    BTW, post your drive impressions about Cayman S PDK on Cayman board. I am intersted in your final verdict since you have 997.2 CS PDK.
