Autocar review of new Audi R8 V10

This car sounds fantastic...wish I could afford one...



Not keen on the wheels either..but the rest of the car is a major hit.

The V10 will come in quite nicely, but might be launching here in the states at a bad time. There are quite a bit of V8s sitting unsold at the dealers now and the used car market is now starting to show a steady drop in pricing / sales. My dealer told me it will not be until late this year before the V10s will hit the showroom.

I dont say this about a lot of cars, but I want one. High revving V10s are my weakness. They sound so nice.

um..i don't know, but i don't think that v10 sounds as good as the m5/m6. It doesn't really scream high enough.

If they really are sitting in showrooms, i wish people would stop trying to flog used R8's at MSRP on eBay.
