    No, I'm driving an Audi R8 V10 right now, although I did consider getting an MP4-12C at the time. They're still quite a bargain at their current price level, I think.

    Not entirely sure about the...

    Fantastic car. I always loved the McLarens, from the F1 to the newer MP4-12C and the latest iterations of their architecture. Lots of balls too, coming from nothing (as a sports car manufacturer) and...

    It does look good, inside and out. But it's also quite expensive, but well its competitors M4 and C63 Coupé are in roughly the same region.

    I'm also quite curious about independent weight...
  4. I wonder if these gains refer to the R8 V10 (=...

    I wonder if these gains refer to the R8 V10 (= the model with stock 540hp) or the V10 Plus. I suppose it is the former.
  5. Exactly. You're not a car designer. I'm not...

    Exactly. You're not a car designer. I'm not either but I can read. And I have read on several occasions that no, you can't stick a larger engine in the i8. In order to make it a true sportscar you...

    Not only that. I am German! :) :) :)

    I really like the Brits for their way with words. It never fails to make me chuckle while reading evo or watching the Clarkson show.

    Incidentally, evo said something similar in their last issue...

    Of course it's simple. LOL

  9. C190 AMG GT: The driver said that the AMG was really easy to...

    The driver said that the AMG was really easy to drive on the limit, quite benign behaviour which is what makes a really fast car and also one that can easily succeed in races.

    That being said,...
  10. Well they've seen that - obviously - the i8...

    Well they've seen that - obviously - the i8 doesn't sell at all, and the i3 is far, far below their sales expectations. And I say obviously because the electric drivetrain technology is nowhere near...

    That would be quite cool. However I can't really see that for the run-of-the-mill 911's, as it would mean loss of the rear seats (Porsche always used those as an argument for a daily driver). Then...
  12. 991: Porsche was running behind in terms of...

    Porsche was running behind in terms of aerodynamics and tyre wear, due to the traditional placement of the engine. That needed to be addressed with the engine moving more towards the car's center of...

    Again you are misleading people here.

    The sport auto lap was not BTG but a full lap.

    Also, sport auto does not have the objective to break records with professional drivers. They want to see...

    To be fair, that's just a half-baked idea some politicians (of the "second chamber" which represents the Bundesländer = the regions in Germany) have pulled out of their ass as a reaction on the...

    That's one of the reasons why I didn't buy an MP4-12C and got the R8 instead. No regrets!

    To my mind even more impressive is the throttle response Ferrari has achieved with this engine. Compared to the McLaren 650S for example there are worlds between the two, even though the Macca can't...
  17. F32,F33,F36,F82,F83: The German car magazine sport auto already...

    The German car magazine sport auto already weighed a car a few weeks back. The result (may have been posted here already) was 1.591 kg (3.507 lbs). You can find the article (comparison with Porsche...

    Some of the very justified criticisms about manufacturers' Nordschleife times is taken into account by the German car magazine "sport auto" supertest. Over the last decades, they have made this the...

    Hello? The M4 GTS video can be found on Youtube within 2 seconds. Please do some research before you write inaccurate stuff.
  20. That I don't know. Not everyone has a facility...

    That I don't know. Not everyone has a facility right there - the big ones do, of course, but not all of them. As far as I know there are no other testing sessions available, except if you test your...

    "Industry Pool" is merely the name for the prototype testing sessions that the car industry does on the Nordschleife every day of the week (Monday to Friday). It's called a pool because it's not for...

    It's all a bit complex, also because different info was flying around immediately after the crash and when the speed limits were announced. No differentiation was made between the different users on...

    Yes.

    And sometimes quotes are not entirely correct or taken out of context. That happened here. There were a few days of uncertainty on how the 'Ring management would react, but it was shortly...

    Yes, I know. I live very close to the 'Ring and have read all about these things.

    What is says is that during races and any other activity - with the exception of the industry pool testing that...

    That's not correct. In certain sections speed limits were imposed and these were enforced during races and the so-called "Touristenfahrten". The industry pool testing was not impacted by these speed...
