    Hmmm, that is the same car that is supposed to be the R8 V6 turbo prototype...in the other article.
  2. I believe it is highly unlikely that the R8 will...

    I believe it is highly unlikely that the R8 will have around or even more than 500hp.

    Why?

    First of all, the Autocar article on which this is based is only a slightly updated version of an...

    Looks great. I much prefer this to the Kermit-the-frog-green of the press cars.
  4. Wow, fantastic project. It's fantastic to see...

    Wow, fantastic project. It's fantastic to see there are some car enthusiasts out there that can finance these projects.
  5. Nice to be on the Autobahn :)

    Nice to be on the Autobahn :)
  6. G14/G15: Any race car is good thing as a matter of...

    Any race car is good thing as a matter of principle.

    But it also shows (again) that BMW does not have a proper sportscar. Just like the 6series or the Bentley Continental, these are not really...

    Not entirely surprising after what happened at Le Mans this year. The LMP1 class was lucky to win at all, considering how many cars dropped out due to technical difficulties. If you combine this with...

    I agree.

    But that's just the problem, it's cheap crap. You make so much more benefits with a high-priced SUV than with dozens of Fiats. And with Porsche and Lamborghini in the market, it's clear...
  9. As long as it's better looking than the FF, why...

    As long as it's better looking than the FF, why not.

    It can help them finance their fantastic sports cars, similar to what Porsche has been doing for more than 10 years.

    Just a pity it costs an arm and a leg...
  11. Audi already uses this technology in their SQ7...

    Audi already uses this technology in their SQ7 TDI, I believe (albeit for a diesel engine). Its technology is based on their S5 TDI prototype if I am not mistaken, and which already had the 48V grid...
  12. No, I'm driving an Audi R8 V10 right now,...

    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...
  14. B9: It does look good, inside and out. But it's also...

    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...
  15. 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.
  16. 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! :) :) :)

  18. F32,F33,F36,F82,F83: I really like the Brits for their way with words....

    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...

  20. 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,...

    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...
  23. 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...
