    Good rule of thumb when converting 62 km to 60 mph times from a stop is .4 of second.

    Don't mess with quattro! Just look at their starts in Speed World Challenge RS6 againist Corvette, Viper...they used go around the field in the grass from a stop when not qualifing well.

    Should be interesting when the V10 TT M5 comes out!

    A little math error. 105,000 minus VAT will be 81,395. The likely pricetag will be between around $100,000 US IMO.

    Maybe that's just my crazy Florida Native assumption, but I know several guys up North, and even the ones who drive Miatas have a truck or a Subaru wagon for the rough weather days.
    Sorry, I was just yanking your chain

    I realize that most people who would have an AWD, if they were available, in northern climates, would garage it in the winter, and drive a beater. I, for one, however, would be putting 4 winter tires on it and drive it all year long. I already have a winter garage queen.

    Ah, bench racing. Still stressful, but easier on the tires.

    just toss the Vette cam/pieces into the V and youre at 650HP.... a boatload cheaper than the turbo set.

    The big question mark for the V is how will the pistons in the LSA hold up because from what I have been hearing, those are not very good. Either way it is a good time to be a Cadillac fan

    from what I understand the eutectic pistons arent used in the SC engines, all forged stuff. I may be wrong.

    [QUOTE=Blackout;1603949]In stock trim this may be the case but if Heffner Performance's Lamborghini Gallarado is an idea as to the potential of the V10 in both of these cars then the RS6 is going to be a hell of a car. But Heffner just built a 930 whp/762 tq Gallarado by adding twin turbos onto the stock V10. So Audi already has the TT's on there so now just add the rest of the mods that they threw onto the Gallarado and instant rocket ship. Here's the car and the supporting mod's.

    [IMG]http://www.blogsmithmedia.com/www.autoblog.com/media/2008/08/heffnerttgallardo_11.jpg[/IG]

    Ah but, the car in the mrc vimeo cost $4800 (£2500) and then went on to have $30k spent on the engine, suspension wheels tires etc.

    In consideration to that I would say it was more than a match for any of the "super" cars there.

    In fact, that car does a 40 mile commute every day, gets tracked at least once a month, in the Ring 3 times a year and still returns 30mpg and can carry 4 people and luggage. And still embarrass in a MASSIVE way most anything out there!

    That said cant wait to kick his ass with the new V!!!

    V10's sound horrible. Ive heard them all and Id never want one. Unless you are up in the roms constantly, every V10 Ive heard has this odd idling tone, it just doesn't sound right. All the 5 cylinders Ive heard have this same tone. V8's or V12's for me...

    Yeah Viper's do. I was thinking about getting one before the V came out, but when I heard the exhaust note, yuck. The Corvette sounds infinitely better. Yes, the R8 also sounds good, but all that money... and you get a car slower than an LS3 Corvette... not worth it to me.
