Sorry for the bad pics again but I was having so much fun I forgot to pull my camera out half the time. The car is amazing wow.. words can't describe it. I drove the 6 speed gear box and the R tronic gear box and, me personally I would go with the R tronic it shifts like a manual. [up] Well here are the pics...........

OMG an Armada of R8's... that red R8 is pretty sexy. Interesting to see that the R8's larger disc rotor is lighter than a regular cross drilled rotor.

Great looking car... I just wish Audi would put some respectable HP under the hood... Red on black carbon or black on black carbon is Audi sweetness

COME ON AUDI 500+ Hp would be nice, the engine easyly has it in it!!!!

since you have driven it, how about you tell us, is it disappointing with only the 4.2 in it? does it need a v10? i've seen in a few other threads that everyone THINKS it's weak that audi didn't put in the v10, just wondering what your impressions are.

Dead serious it was not disappointing at all. Getting out of that car and jumping in my S4 was the only disappointment. I can see myself with an R8 as a daily driver.
Now with the V10 that would be amazing!! Remember it is not just the 4.2 V8 but the gearbox was awesome too.[up]

Guys, the V-10 is coming. The V8 was first in line.
Lambo wouldn't have it any other way.
Just strap a supercharger on it for now:)

Bro,
What did it sound like compared to your S4?
I'm guessing similar but different with the engine right behind your head??
