Every time I see one of these I like it more and more. I spotted this one while walking around Mantova, Italy this afternoon, maybe I could incorporate a few styling cues into the old Intrepid.






P.S. I did not see Tony Stark around the car.

Would you really want this?


When you could have this?!?!


The Viper is $40,000 less and its V-10 has 180 more horsepower than the Audi's V-8! Plus the Viper's much better looking and it's a convertible! Oh, and its a DODGE.

only a fool would take the viper.

The r8 handles better, more technology (since the viper basically has the same interio features as our cars LOL). Unless they are adding the new navs to teh viper, the 03s and such still had the rb1 as the highest thing.

The audi is 4wd, mid engine car that wont lose control.

its also a well built v8 4.2L

Overall its apples and oranges, viper fans will take the viper over any other car despite the price tag and gas costs. Audi owners will do the same, although most will agree the r8 is a very sexy car.

Some of the new audis are all on the same design of the r8, even the a4 has taken a new shape, mainly in the headlights of course.

If I could afford either, I'd probably have both.

I saw the Audi at NAIAS, also Top Gear did a review of the car. Jeremy Clarkson loved the car. If it is good enough for him, it has to be a bad ass car. That 4.2L V8 sounds awesome!!!

its the same engine from the rs4 and A8, but its better off in the R8 IMO since it has reduced power distribution to the front wheels and gives it better handling with the engine in the middle.

However in that race against the Porsche carrera the r8 lost :(
The porsche costs more and is a rear engine RWD so they did mention the rear engine helped push it off the line quicker. Handling wise the R8 would be much better IMO.



The LOSS !!!

For some reason, I think the Viper is much more of an attention grabber than the R8. Driving the Viper around town was quite an experience for me, you have ppl hooting and hollering, not to mention everyone pointing.
