    So far, ski bum, all you've proved to me is that you are rude and inane; but that's to be expected from someone like you. BTW,dealing with jokers is MY business.

    Kreso or any Audiphiles,

    Any recent rumours re. a 600+HP twin-turbocharged version of the R8 using the V10 from the S6/8 or the Gallardo?

    Here's a blog from last month on the subject:

    http://www.germancarblog.com/2007/02/audi-r8-spyder-version-and-two-new.html




    I have seen one today and the car is WONDERFUL. [beep] I can't believe it looks so much better in person.

    But 420hp is not powerful enough for my taste.

    Are you sure that the upgrade version will be out in 2008?



    I also hope that will use turbo engine!

    BUT....

    Maybe the price is quite high for an Audi?

    Any thoughts about the price?

    Anyone think it is overpriced?

    Re: Super-Audi R8-style with 600+HP twin turbo V10

    The purpose of the R8 is not to sell the R8, but to prove that Audi has $120k cars in its lineup.

    Re: Super-Audi R8-style with 600+HP twin turbo V10

    The dealer here said Audi don't have enough time to produce the R8 for the market?

    Are there really that much people want the car? Or the production process is too slow?

    Anyone think this is truth?

    Re: Super-Audi R8-style with 600+HP twin turbo V10

    As far as I know R8 is sold-out till 2009...

    I don't. Costs the same as a C4S, with performance at least as good and with better exclusivity and looks.

    Does a C4S with a few options really cost over $120K like the anticipated price quoted for the R8 in recent magazine articles? If so, I think the C4S is overpriced as well.

    Well, the R8 with all the options (R-Tronic, ceramics, etc.) costs just over 130.000 Euros here. Same goes for the C4S.

    Now granted, I am talking strictly for Europe, so things may be a bit different in the US, where Porsche is still taking advantage of its currency hedging (thus selling their cars cheaper than in Europe). Audi, from what I understand, doesn't.

    That's it, both cars are overpriced. In the one case you get an 911 with just too many gadgets, in the other you get only an Audi.

    I know the style is cool, but the price here is almost same as a fully loaded TT.

    I think they are asking too much, at the end it is still an Audi.

    Audi is in the same class as MB and BMW here. I'm assuming you're from the US, correct? Porsche reduces prices for your market, while Audi apparently doesn't, at least not for its top supercar. Same goes for Ferrari.

    Guys,

    If the car is sold out until 2009, it isn't overpriced-it's UNDERPRICED.

    Quote from Rossi: "They say so now. Let's wait what the situation looks like when finally deliver the cars..." I agree with his thinking. Let us see how many people drop off of the list when official pricing is announced (if it is as high as the rumors I think a significant percentage will). I almost put a deposit down but wanted to see the car in person first. Now that the car is likely to cost well over $100k, I couldn't even be bothered to go check it out at the local car show this weekend. Lost all interest.

    Also, Audi seems to be playing games with supply to create a sense of rarity / demand. The number to be brought to the USA has progressively dropped, perhaps to match decrease in demand. I'm sure Audi's capability to manufacture them in volume has not changed.
