I was on the NJ GSP today and saw this coming up behind me. I must say the old saying about a picture not doing something justice applies. I was floored by the cars shape and grace.

the audi R8 is one of the few cars in the last decade or so that truly has the artistic styling down. it is a true mixture of grace and power

It may be a performance machine...but our cars r styled nicer...and not 114K plus tax. Still believe our styling is better ...and not because of the price. Remember, not talking performance.

:agree::agree::agree:

For the last 2 Wednesday nights I have been going to Cruisin Nights (4-9pm) at Bear Mountain Park (Palisades). There are over 300 cars and motorcycles that show up there and they range from 1930's up to 2009 from regular cars to the Exotics.

I said that to say that every time I have been there I have dozens of people googling over the SKY:D

Googling is using the popular search engine Google.com to look up someone's name in an effort to find out more about them (in this instance to find out more about the SKY):willy::willy:

Thanks to Clarkson's dialogue while evaluating the R8 on Top Gear, there are two things that pop in my mind whenever I see an R8 on the roadway:

1. Fairy Lamps (time tag 2:21)

2. Smearing honey into Keira Knightly (time tag 3:20).

I have seen many of them in Atlanta, usually hot women driving them too. One even tried me, but she obviously didn't know how to drive it to well lol. Very sexy cars in person..

I completely disagree. That car is ahead of the curve on styling. Our cars look nice, but when you get up close you can tell where corners were cut to save costs.

I've seen a red R8 in person. Its is an amazing piece of machinery / art to look at.

I don't know. It is a nice looking car, though I hate the black vent thing on the side, but the Sky is a classic design that is IMHO, much more in every way design wise.

Maybe not quite the fit and finish of the Audi, but damn nice for the price!





The great thing is, though, that we have such a variety of cars available to fit everyone's tastes.

:cheers: Does the R8 come with a rag top? NO! It's like comparing apples to oranges since the Sky is a drop top....:rolleyes:

An R8 garaged in VA would cost me more each month in VA car taxes than my monthly car note on my SKY.

And even after my SKY is paid off, and the R8 depreciates, the residual value on the R8 would continue to cost me several hundred a month in taxes through the next decade.

I forgot about that "Personal Property Tax" in VA. I lived there thirty-something years ago. It's nice to not have to worry about it anymore.
