R8. Wrooom wrooom.

by Volker Weber


Thanks for letting me drive your R8 tonight, Wolfgang.


Volker ?????
Well don't leave it there... dangling in front of us ... like the grapes above Tantalus ... WHAT WAS IT LIKE ?

Sooooo nice it is... Was having my A3 serviced a few weeks ago and had a chance to chat with an owner... It was one of the 8 cars he drove regularly, he wasn't counting his race cars...

What was it like? Entirely as expected. It's easy to drive, like a Porsche. Unlike a Porsche, you can't take any stuff with you. There is a tiny boot (trunk for you Americans :-) ) in the front, but I have not looked at that.

It's the kind of car I would like to have for a weekend. And then buy an A6 and a TT. Or a Carrera.

I'm green with envy...

Volker, why A6 and TT?

I would try to get an Avant RS6 (or Avant S6) - so no need to buy a TT anymore, so one could invest some money in some 40to fuel truck filled with Super Plus fuel.

And yes, the R8 is really nice.

No space for a fuel truck. But I do like the TT.

Volker Weber, 2008-02-29

But I do like the TT.
Me too ;-)

Ah shucks Vowe, damn you for dangling stuff like that in front of innocent family fathers that just bought a new car. ;-)

Somewhat dampens the new car owners pride.

Despite that I still like my C4 Grand Picasso in Citrin Yellow ( EGS 6 HDI 110 FAP 80kw )

Glad you had fun riding it, Martin

Martin, what a pretty car. You will have much fun with it going places. And I am pretty sure your kids make more noise than any 8-cyl engine. ;-)
