New Audi RS4 V8 test drive

I posted on Asphalte an article on a pretty long test drive of the new Audi RS4 V8. I have to say it's the first Audi that convinces me as a real sports car, the engine is a real success, and the rest is up to the task. I repeatedly measured 50 to 160 km/h in less than 10s (around 9.8) in 3rd ... really not bad for a naturally aspirated engine.
A very impressive package ... and Audi knew it when they priced it.

Indeed, Clarckson staged a red RS4 B7 on of his "creative" races in les Gorges du Verdon and decided he would like the car, without quite saying why. Actually, that show made me concerned as the car seemed to understeer like a sled, but the reality is actually quite good.
The risk is, you may not putter that long.
