I've seen a pair of new Audi R8's driving together around Prymont, both parked in the Casino for a while,.. then we followed them to an office in Prymont. The drivers are cool dudes who said the cars belong to a car company called the P.one Club, and gave me and Nigel a chance to look over them...AWSOME CARS MAN !!! THE BEST EVER...and loud ! :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :cool:

Lots of buzz going on about these cars everywhere - can't wait to start seeing them.

For some reason, even if they were available right now, I can't get interested.  Too dull looking perhaps.  The Audi brand name (without Lambo's cachet) just isn't strong enough to pull it off as a $300K car (yet).  A Porsche even seems more exotic.  They are brilliant to drive though - if you believe JC.

Have you seen the latest Top Gear yet?  Comparison between the R8 and a similar priced Porsche.  I agree I don't think it's anything like a $300k car, I'd like to see them come in under $200k, but the (basic) comparison with the Porsche gives a good nod to the value of the R8.

EVO Magazine rave about it too, and I personally love its looks - might not have the branding but looks wise its up there IMO.

If I was in the market I'd be getting it over a Carrera - GT3 v R8 and it might be a different story.

Yep. The boys in Sydney have been quite excited about them.
There are some small photos up on our website now http://p1australia.com.au/index.php/cars/group4/audi-r8

it looks like they haven't quite finished building it to me. not sure what they were thinking with the rear of the thing either.  :confused:

Have seen a few driving around London over the last month or two... Dont like them in photos, don't like them when they're standing still but when they're on the move there's something completley different about them... I like it. :)
But I dont think they are anywhere near as good as the media/press/Audi marketing have made them out to be...

yes, it does look better on the move as its driving away from you.  if not for the point of value for price, I"d pick the r8 over a 997 GT3.
