Audi R8 spotted on I-66, then again ... - May 15, 2008, 09:05 PM

I spotted the new Audi R8 yesterday on I-66, while heading home to Centreville. For some reason, after I started riding my F4i a few days back (yes, I'm a noob), a $100k+ car seems like a Honda Civic, plus the cool lighting and nicer wheels. "Performance" didn't come to mind. My thought process was, "How come he didn't he just get the Desmo RR?"



Then again, he probably has a sh*t load of $.

U dont get a r8 for performance.....its slower then alot of cars in its price range. You get it for itspedigree, rarity and style. Among other things its just a status symbol.

For the price i would spend a lil more and get an aston IMO lol

Hum... 0-60 in 4.3 sec...not too shabby Also, this isn't a drag car...I'm sure it can corner as good as a civic if not maybe just maybe a little better.

Just like anything...it's not the fastest...nor is it the slowest and yes you could get something faster cheaper or more expensive but like it or not...it's a bad ass car.

However, I agree...I'd rather have a Desmo RR even if I'd be afraid to get that bike out of 1st gear

FYI, it's not really a GREEN machine if it's red....then, it's.....well.....a red machine.
