    Hello R8....This thing is AWESOME! I love the paddle shifting and the SMG.

    V8. I plan on doing more driving in this much more than my supercharged GS. The road test proved its a very capable DD compared to the Gallardo's I originally went to look at.

    They are better looking IMO than their sister car Gallardo. Like the Porsche 911, they are an everyday supercar, but IMO the Audi is more unique than the Porsche. Be prepared to get a LOT of attention in that car.

    Pretty much my dream car as well. Theirs some YouTube vids with them with an electronic cutout in the exhaust and they sound heavenly. Nice choice. I'd have skipped the flappy paddles on it since its just a regular auto, not a true SMG. A true SMG is a whole different ball game.

    Why is it that I read this whole post normal until flappy paddles came up in Jeremy Clarkson's voice?

    OP, Looks like a very nice upgrade. Kudos for getting the carbon fiber panels too. Have fun!

    Holy crap, that's a hell of a sweet car. I'll absolutely never be able to afford one, but it is my dream car.

    Yup, I got to take a V10 around a track for a few laps, and it is definately NOT a standard auto. Shifts VERY fast.

    This is the v10 but pure drool...I love UGR!
    At the end of the video you can see how fast it really shifts.

    Epic car. The only thing that would make it better would be if they released it in the diesel version. :cool:

    Is that available in AWD? A lady down the street has a black on that she drives EVERYDAY - rain, cold, hot etc.

    To complete the circle another lady has a beautiful Lambo Gallardo that is also driven most everyday but only if the weather is decent. The Lambo lady is well past 60 to boot.


    ETA - that's an extremely nice looking car. Well played.

    If you are single, stay that way....that car is a straight up panty dropper.
