    Audi quotes a significant improvement in acceleration. 0-124 mph in 10.8 seconds. Currently the R8 V10 does the 1/4 mile in 11.6 @ 123. Should finally be able to match up with the Gallardo acceleration wise.

    simply awesome,Kreso already told us this is faster on the track than LP570 superleggera!
    in Samoa Orange metallic must be fab!
    I like a lot the aero package (what's the exact technical name of the lateral "splitter" on the front bumber?)
    must have: optional cup tyres with optional wheels,carbon frames seats instead CFRP seats and race package

    that thing looks ridiculous- in an amazingly hot way. wicked.

    i can't wait to see the numbers on it. finally- this will show how much better the R8 chassis and handling are better than the LP-whatever.
    anyone have a ring time on it yet. i'd like to confirm the 7:33 i have heard.

    will be expensive. but less then the lambo.
    Past- A4, TT, S4

    Present- R8 V10

    what does GT stand for? Gran Turismo? it would be sick if audi would put this letter in future to fight bmws CSL versions and preparing a RS5 GT or something . anyone can confirm

    Qisha/Kreso/Anyone,
    since we've got this introduction this early(?) - is there anything else we should expect to see (apart to well know A7 intro) till the end of this year? it seems very drought season ahead...

    Do you ever post anything without 'BMW' in it?

    Think it's more logical those two letters refer to it's competitive big brother.

    but wouldnt you like to see a new range of a letter called maybe "GT" in cars like RS5? lesser weight, more hardcore and more power? like bmw did with m3 gts?. i dont like bmw. iam an audi guy.
