Re: ABT Audi R8 (2008)
If I'm going to spend money on a high HP car, the Dodge Viper is the easy winner for all out brute performance. The fact that it cruises at 1150rpm in top gear @ 60mph and won't lug down if you romp on it is a nice feature to have! Audi'll be better off putting the V12 or V10 TDI in the A8 if they want better sales. If I wanted a V8, I'd get a 'vette. At least the audi has descent looks for the price, but performance wise it's not up to par. Perhaps it's just me, as I can't stand peaky engines (RICE!).
