Autoweek:

In the last year, we've spent time in two of VW's north-or-south-of-200k twin-turbo machines. The Bentley Continental GT is more stately and attractive, while the still-controversial Autocar reports that Porsche's in-the-works MSB platform will underpin both the next Panny and all future Bentley products, from the Contis to the big boys. Expect a hybrid construction of aluminum und schteel and what we imagine to be a fundamentally more enjoyable driving experience from the entry-level Bentleys. That's the good news.

The bad news is that Bentley's storied 6.75-liter V8 is headed out to pasture. Sure, it's a guzzler. Sure, it's archaic. But it also means that Bentley's motive heart is now entirely German. On the bright side, due to Stuttgart's insistence on proper weight distro, no Bentley engine will ever again suffer the ignominy of hanging Audi-like over the front axle.

Pip and cheerio to that, then.

Broncos theme this year is how can we effectively neutralize any good that Peyton manning can do/give us.

So far drop an easy catch, fumble on 3rd and 1

Have Welker too...how the hell does he have 3 for 14? Brady is obsessed with his TE's I guess.

RS5- V8- Move over M3

$68,000.00

it is equipped with a newer version of the R8's V8—incorporating technical upgrades from the R8's V10—boasting 450 hp rather than the 420 hp from the R8.

Perhaps the RS5 needs the extra power, bristling as it does with Audi's comprehensive technical arsenal and weighing in at a burly 4,009 pounds. But that stout motor and variable chassis control almost completely obscure the car's substantial mass.

With its maximum torque available from 4,000 to 6,000 rpm, the car's throttle response is vivid in normal operating conditions. Power builds quickly after that, maximum thrust arriving at 8,250 rpm with a thunderous accompaniment from the high-revving V8.

With its tach redlined at a lofty 8,500 rpm, the V8's maximum piston speed is more than 5,000 feet per minute (or 26 meters per second), which is right up there with F1 engines. And when hooked to Audi's fastest-shifting seven-speed dual-clutch tranny, this new V8 propels the RS5 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds.

It will go on eagerly to reach a governed top speed of 174 mph. While the V8 exhaust cadence tends to understate the rotational speed, it provides a truly heroic soundtrack. And yet this seriously strong car somehow manages to avoid the U.S. gas-guzzler tax.

Equipped with Audi's quattro variable all-wheel-drive system, the RS5 starts off with a 40/60 front-to-rear torque split but can shift power fore and aft as surface conditions dictate, and its rear sport differential provides torque vectoring in corners to help the car turn.

Anyone happen to know if a speeding ticket you got in Arizona will transfer to Illinois and insurance companies will be able to see it?

Most states other than this one work on a points system where severity determines how many points you get. In IL it's more cut and dry so speeding is just speeding and thats that. However, there usually is an equivalent to the points system violations that transfers over so in short, yes.

Try to get probation and driving school, I got one in Wyoming last week and will do the course online to get out of ticket, and just pay fine. Yes, most states report to other states your convictions.
