    Top Gear (magazine): Audi R8 vs Gallardo

    Another R8 vs Gallardo test:

    Quote:
    Yep, this is Lambo's Audi alright.

    Which must make the R8 Audi's Lambo. Hmm, confusing. And that's just the start of it. VW owns Audi which owns Lamborghini. This much we know. But cash-rich Porsche will soon command a majority stake in struggling VW, which means that not one, or two, but three different mid- or rear-engined supercars from the same firm will all be tilting at the same buyer.

    Is this really progress or has Ferdinand Piëch - VW kingpin, scion of the Porsche family and the closest thing the car biz has to a megalomaniac Bond villain - finally gone off the deep end? What's the point of playing yourself at poker? Do we really need a mid-engined 414bhp Audi?

    Re: Top Gear (magazine): Audi R8 vs Gallardo

    Same comparison done at March Car magazine. But what makes me laugh is the comment about "Gallardo looks DATED, 997 is a Retro JOKE'

    This is the first comment i ve seen about Gallardo dated.
    I can say nothing to 997 comment but who says Gallardo design is dated. It is 3 years old and imo still one of the best designed car. At least it is not such a big Audi TT.

    Re: Top Gear (magazine): Audi R8 vs Gallardo

    I agree with vga18. the r8 in comparision looks odd and fat and mis proportioned. G. is imho one of the best designed car everytime.

    Re: Top Gear (magazine): Audi R8 vs Gallardo

    +1
    The Gallardo is one of the most perfectly designed cars in the modern era. The proportions and looks are

    Re: Top Gear (magazine): Audi R8 vs Gallardo

    What I don't like about the R8 is the side view which is out of proportion with the long nose and short ass. Apart from that it looks great.

    ....

    But except the exterior R8 interior is one of the best.

    Anyway.

    do not confuse it with the TT please

    Re: Top Gear (magazine): Audi R8 vs Gallardo

    I too think the Gallardo is a great looking car, maybe a future classic stylewise.

    Didn't really like the R8 when I first saw it at the Paris Auto show, but now the more I see it, the more I like it.

    Just buy a TT and it is still an Audi.

    Give me a G anyday!

    Re: Top Gear (magazine): Audi R8 vs Gallardo

    It's like choosing between two really hot sisters and it all comes down to preference

    VGA18, that was the new TT in your first pic

    yeah no kidding, mike's not biased at all!

    Re: Top Gear (magazine): Audi R8 vs Gallardo

    For a second I thought that TT was the R8... I wouldn't be surprised if they really do share body parts!

    The G is a beautiful design and cannot be faulted - I can see Mike getting a G Spyder too someday...

    Re: Top Gear (magazine): Audi R8 vs Gallardo

    Having seen both in the flesh I prefer the G BUT, if my pocket was GBP 40,000 short the R8 wouldn't look bad on my drive!
