    Great car. Pity for its below par gearbox, also mentioned here. What a design oversight on behalf of Audi not to be able to install a DCT.

    I think Lamborghini is to blame here. Smiley

    True. R8 is based on Gallardo. Its rear is too short for current shortest DCT(from Graziano-used in MP4-12C) by only 6cm...

    Next gen of R8 will be DCT only. It will be partially tuned(drive dynamics etc.) by Porsche guys. So...SmileySmileySmiley

    Nice car,  bit too busy looking and definitely too pricey. It's a shame about the gear box. Maybe they will release the R8 GT2 RWD and give a manual option.

    Is that car still on the table Kreso?

     Does that mean the next Gallardo will be partially tuned by porsche as well?


    Re: R8 GT test by Quattroruote

    All sports cars in the VW group will be at least co-developed by Porsche. Good news, I guess.

    This can get REALLY interesting, with the fusion, a lot of VAG group sportcars are going to get a touch of  "Eau de Porsche" and will be really interesting to see the result Smiley

    And most interesting will be: what can Porsche do in case of Lamborghini. Smiley
