    Re: First R8 comparison test...

    Its good numbers for R8 and i think the cars true performance is like as Kreso mentioned #s. I think it would have a good challenge with C4S but with X51 package.

    Regarding F430 times i think these are same numbers as an old test of F430(AZ tested). I also heard 13.2 rumor however the greatest mag of the world ANuS(sorry mistype AMuS ) tested F430 as 13.0 seconds same as M6

    It does make for a great prelude to the R10, which could easily outshine the both F430 and TT.



    By the time the R10 will be presented, the F430 successor will be on the market or at least near introduction.



    I've read the debate on when the F430 successor will arrive. It can be as much as 2 years away. We've already seen spy pics of the R10, which means the car can be available in the first half of next year.

    To be sure, there will be a sequel to this test with an R10 v. F430 v. TT.

    Kreso asked me to post some numbers from the test.

    As I don't have the magazine with me at the moment, this is what I recall, so don't nail me down on it.


    F430 F1 was 3.8 sec to 100 km/h and 12.2 sec to 200 km/h.
    For the turbo, which was a tiptronic, the numbers were 3.9 sec and 12.3 sec respectively.
    R8 performed in 4.5 sec (not sure about that) and 15.2 sec.



    Thanks Stefan!

    BTW, R8 numbers are almost similar to those that will be published next week in AMS test...

    So, underperformer or not(R8)?



    I think its underperforming slightly, but thats nothing that some minor mods can't fix. Also I think what it lacks in 0-60 time it makes up for in looks

    Yeah those Audi TT / Panda bear inherited looks are great!

    Re: First R8 comparison test...

    This "comparison" test is fake.

    997tt used is TIP version and data is from AZ manual test(issue 12/2006).

    F430F1 data are also old one...

    Really? Those magazines are not what they used to be. Very annoying.
