Audi R8 4.2 quattro--D&M Motorsports Test Drive and Review with Chris Moran 2012
Test Drive Review of a 2010 Audi R8 4.2 quattro with Chris Moran. Presented by D&M Motorsports. This Audi probably would have never happened had Porsche gained control of the Volkswagen Group five years earlier. But now the Audi R8 5.2 is out, larger than life and even better than expected. True, the Gallardo is sharper. The SL63 AMG is wilder. And the 911 turbo is all that in a more compact package. But in terms of total dynamic balance; anyone-can-do-it, A-to-B ground-covering ability; and that all-important blend of confidence, compliance, and comfort, the 5.2-liter V-10-powered R8 is the new leader of the pack. That's the inescapable conclusion after a memorable day in which even losing my driver's license ten times over would not have dimmed the sparkle in my eyes. In the morning, I left Marbella, Spain, for the remote, privately owned Ascari racetrack in a Suzuka gray R8 with a three-pedal transmission and magnetic dampers (standard in the U.S.). After lunch, I chased the warm winter sun through the rolling hills of the Costa del Sol in a brilliant red coupe that featured the R tronic automated-manual transmission and the conventional chassis setup. My pick? The manual version, even though it is a little less aggressive on the track and a little thirstier overall. When we first tried the R8 a couple years ago, the last things it seemed to need were two more cylinders and 100 extra horses. Which only goes to prove that even the finest sports car can always do with more power. In the case of the R8 5.2, the 420-hp, 4.2-liter V-8 was replaced by a 525-hp, 5.2-liter V-10. Redlined at 8700 instead of 8000 rpm, the engine dishes up 391 instead of 317 lb-ft of torque. Although the torque curve peaks at a tall 6500 rpm, more than 350 lb-ft are on tap all the way from 3500 to 7500 rpm. Perfectly spaced and mated to a creamy yet meaty clutch, the six-speed gearbox combines short throws with sensuous connectivity and the classic aluminum gates. The R tronic works very well in paddleshift operation and in superquick sport mode, but when the lever is stuck in Drive, the transmission responds jerkily and somewhat reluctantly to impatient throttle orders. The ten-cylinder R8 is a seriously fast driving machine that does not rely on any kind of artificial aspiration to beam itself toward the horizon. First gear expires a trifle early at 49 mph, but second stretches to 79 mph, third maxes out at 111 mph, and fourth is good for 142 mph. Fifth should run out of revs at 172 mph, but we found no road that was long or straight enough to prove it. The claimed top speed is 196 mph, which means that the R8 5.2 is a little faster than the 911 turbo and the top-spec SL63 AMG, yet a little slower than the closely related 552-hp Gallardo, not to mention the $107,000 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1. The acceleration time quoted for the 0-to-62-mph sprint is 3.9 seconds, which puts the fastest-ever production Audi on par with the Porsche and the $302,000 SL65 AMG Black Series. Thanks to Quattro all-wheel drive, a 15/85 front/rear torque bias, a limited-slip rear differential, 44/56 percent weight distribution, and substantial nineteen-inch Pirelli tires, grip is never an issue on dry pavement. Of course, you can switch off stability control, but in view of the massive maximum cornering forces (1.2 g, according to Audi), it takes a braver man and preferably a wider circuit to perform the art of power oversteer. Instead, it is worth dialing in ESP Sport, a useful in-between setting that permits all the basic dance steps except those that typically end in tears. Equipped with polished two-tone Y-spoke wheels and a set of extrawide tires (235/35YR-19 in the front, 305/30YR-19 in the back), our test car provided the kind of roadholding one normally associates only with warmed-up slicks. Tipping the scales at 3571 pounds with the six-speed manual, the new Audi is 132 pounds heavier than its V-8-powered brother, 77 pounds heavier than a 911 turbo, and 50 pounds more than the latest Gallardo. Weighing down the Audi are its longer wheelbase (104.3 versus 100.8 inches for the Lambo), its less radical materials, and its more generous equipment. While the Gallardo LP560-4 is a tight fit, the R8 offers more head- and legroom as well as a second luggage bay behind the seats, which expands cargo volume to 6.7 cubic feet. Like the R8 4.2, the R8 5.2 gets a flat-bottomed steering wheel, but in the V-10 model it can be rimmed with a suedelike material. Exterior upgrades over the V-8 version include flared sideblades, extended sills, a larger rear diffuser, standard LED headlamps (an industry first but of no obvious benefit at night), different wheel designs, polished black front and rear air vents, and more chrome for the single-frame grille.

Team Polizei 144A: NYC to Rolex 24 in Daytona & Back... in 5 minutes.
Polizei treats Interceptor 144A to some R&R and enjoys the luxuries aboard the Amtrak Autotrain! I mean, it's just the perfect means of transportation for a couple of southbound yankees such as ourselves, especially if you're, eh, not in too much of a hurry. Of course we missed the train on the way back north, but 144A was well rested and eager to carry us home in Schtyle. Read more on http://www.teampolizeihq.com.

2014 Audi R8 - Handcrafted
In this promotional video from Audi you can see how the R8 is made by hand and the attention to detail for their top of the line product. The Audi R8 is the sporty spearhead of the Audi model lineup. Now the high-performance sports car is more dynamic than ever, with the S tronic transmission and new features on the exterior, in the cabin and for the brakes. All models now come standard with all-LED headlights. The rear lights mark the premiere of another dynamic innovation: dynamic turn signals. The powerful new Audi R8 V10 plus with 404 kW (550 hp) sprints from zero to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 3.5 seconds. Thanks to Audi ultra lightweight construction, the top-of-the-line model with a manual transmission has a curb weight of just 1,570 kilograms (3,461.26 lb). The reshuffled Audi R8 lineup comprises two body styles - Coupé and Spyder - and three engines. The standard sprint times for both models equipped with the new seven-speed S tronic have improved by 0.3 seconds while fuel consumption has been reduced by as much as 0.9 liters per 100 km (22 grams CO2 per km [35.41 g/mile]). The eight-cylinder engine powering the Audi R8 V8 delivers 316 kW (430 hp) and 430 Nm (317.15 lb-ft) of torque, the latter between 4,500 and 6,000 rpm. In combination with the seven-speed S tronic, it accelerates the R8 Coupé from zero to 100 km/h (62.14 mph) in 4.3 seconds on its way to a top speed of 300 km/h (186.41 mph). The Audi R8 V10 with the S tronic completes the standard sprint in 3.6 seconds and has a top speed of 314 km/h (195.11 mph). The ten-cylinder engine produces 386 kW (525 hp) and delivers 530 Nm (390.91 lb-ft) of torque to the crankshaft at 6,500 rpm.
