    • Audi announces R8 GT pricing: $196,800, only 333 going to be built wordlwide, 99 to US

      Good news, the Audi R8 GT is coming to the US. The bad news? Only 99 are coming and at over $196,800 a pop. The car has the V10 5.2 FSI it shares with the Gallardo but in a higher state of tune of 560 horsepower vs. the regular V10 R8's. It is 180 pounds lighter thanks to the various lightweight parts. It is all wheel drive not rear wheel drive as some speculated and seems to be R-tronic only. Yes, we want one.

        For under $200k I get an R8 V8, with a turbo kit, and laugh in the R8 GT owners face while make whoosh noises.

        The R8 styling is newer/fresher. Plus, Ironman all of a sudden has people thinking the R8 is an exotic and not just a parts bin Gallardo. Still, sweet ride and cool they are doing essentially a superleggera for the R8.

        i like the r8 but the v8 is waaaay under powered and then the price of the v10 is nuts, i would go year old lp560 or f430 for the money, unless i need it for daily use where those cars are too wild

        LP560 is still more money than a V8 R8.

        A V8 R8 with a TT kit is nothing to mess with.

        An F430 is also dated now. Not like I wouldn't take one.

        What people do to get a boost in Google rankings is post on forums with their keyword anchor test, in this case Gucci shoes, and then put a link in their profile to their site for the keyword. That way Google indexes it and it looks like a link for that keyword and Google gives it priority.

        So, I removed his profile link and banned the spammer.
