The RS4 is really impossible to get major power gains out of it, hence why you don't see it, as a simple MTM supercharger that brings it over 500hp is like $15K. Whoa. Plus carbon build up in the FSI engine...

I wish Audi would sack up and put the TT 4.0L from the S6 into the RS5, now that is a car that I would be all over...
I'd love an R8 but I bet the maintenence and parts are the same as a gallardo...hell even one used would be over $100k....no bueno cuz i'd want a v10

I'll have to research it though

If you can do without awd the Z06 just put the 2013 GTR in its place on a racetrack. Never really likes the GTR. Yes they are fast but they are big and IMO someone beat the shit out of them with the ugly stick.

My next car will no doubt be a Gallardo with a custom Stage 6 TT kit. They are still insanely badass and will turn more heads than any GTR or Audi.

Why sell yourself short Chris. Why not a TT Aventador. That's what I want Dwight to put snails on. OMG would that be insane!

Are you talking about a stock Z06? I've never heard of Z06 being faster than the GTR stock vs stock... Maybe I'm wrong, just making sure.

Do a bit more research, That is old news.

It is being made on a per order bases

At only $500,000.00+ Each!!!!!!!!

http://www.motorauthority.com/news/1...ction-official

Man that thing is ugly and only an idiot would drop that much coin on one

You guys complain about the price of a base jeep compared to the SRT look at that econo crap for $500,000.00
