You have got to be kidding me...

Based on Audi's current S6, it is planned to go on sale across Europe next April in both sedan and wagon body styles, priced at the equivalent of U.S. $138,500. Audi officials in Germany say North American sales are planned, although they don't give a time frame.

Well I think I found the next depreciation deal of the decade in about 5 years...

Why not just buy both :lildevil:

Audi would be a better everyday driver, Corvette would be a better all-out performance machine.

Some pics




The RS6 will come with the DSG setup and here's some info on it

F1 Trans in a Ferrari Enzo : 150 milleseconds

DSG Trans : 8 milleseconds.

Once the driver has selected D for drive, the transmission's first clutch is engaged and the first gear is selected on the first shaft. The driver instructs the car to accelerate. As the car accelerates, the transmission's computer lines up second gear on the second shaft (which is connected to the second clutch). Depending on the amount of power being requested by the driver (full throttle or normal driving) the car then upshifts. During this sequence, the DSG disengages the first clutch while engaging the second clutch (all power from the engine is now going through the second shaft), thus completing the shift sequence. This sequence happens in 8 ms, and there is practically no power loss.

Once the vehicle has shifted up to second gear, third gear is lined up and is pending. Once the time comes to shift, the second clutch disengages and the first clutch re-engages. Downshifting is similar to upshifting but in reverse order. The cars computer senses the car slowing down or more power required, and thus lines up a lower gear on one of the shafts not in use, and then completes the downshift.

some day, cars will sense when we want to slow down and brake for us, sense when we want to turn and steer for us, sense when we are pissed off, and pull over and shut the car off for us...

God forbid anything ever breaks on that transmission, you'll have to scrap the whole car! :eek:

Call me old fashioned (even though I've never been an expedient stick driver, and didn't even learn til not long ago), but I prefer a codgy old stick in my hands any day of the week.

:yeah:

my ego will let me buy a DSG after my left knee fails

shift time of 8 ms vs. my shift time of approx 500 ms in everyday driving = lost time of WGAF? :bouncy:
