It's a fücking estate car. It's a device used at the weekend to take perfectly decent stuff to the tip and then transport chintzy tat home from the garden centre and diy store.

How the fück such a thing became an object of desire I will never understand. Whatever fücking colour it is.

 

Niiiiiiiiiice colour though +++

I quite like the RS6 to be honest. But mainly for its absolute brutish thuggery rather than its looks. They sound ****ing awesome.

I vividly remember going to Oulton Park one Sunday morning and was just behind an SLR, I floored it and so did he after a care moved out of the way. 

 

Oh my did it disappear, it was in the paddock when I got there it just flew. It was a strange marriage of Merc and McLaren but a pretty fast car. +++

Someone on RS246 posted up a 0-100 mph comparison for the current McLaren 570 S, R8 V10+ and 991 Turbo S the other day (figures from Fastestlaps.com)

 

570 S - 6.3s

991 S - 6.2s

V10+ - 5.9s

 

Thats just potty compared to 7.4 / 7.5 to 100 mph for the SLR, which was a seriously seriously fast car when it came out in 2003.  :o

The SLR isn't dating well is it, pretty much anything Merc from that era looks very dated now.

It's odd that even older Mercs still look good, though.

Funny, I still think the McMerc looks fabulous.

Having never had the desire to frequent single brand forums, are they all as bad as this? Or is the fanboy nature of Audi worse than most?

 

Do they even know they're doing it?

Remember TG taking a 458, a McLaren and an R8 to Spain?  And concluding that the R8 was faster, better value, more practical, better built, better designed, and therefore they'd definitely and without hesitation have the 458.

Opps lol, that wasn't the point of my post, I was just trying to say you can have 6 seconds to 100 mph for sub 150k nowadays.  Years ago you needed an Mclaren F1, Enzo, FXX, Veryon, or a 1000 bhp Ruf etc etc to get even close to that!  Progress....

 

(I remember thinking that 0-60 mph in 6 seconds was fast when I was growing up as a kid reading TG magazine etc)

Just teasing.  :P

 

It's a valid point.  +++

 

 

But I bet you were quite pleased the Audi won...

I can honestly say, if I'd saved my last penny to get to 150k, a base spec 570 S with buckets and silly paint would be where I'd put my money.  Good residuals, exclusivity, dealer customer service etc

 

Second hand though, R8 everytime, you can have a 550 bhp old shape 'plus' with 5000-10,000 miles for 80-85k nowadays.  And they don't understeer as much as the new shape R8 or Huracan  ;)

There's a 570s in my secure parking at work. I can confirm it is a thing of beauty.

Or you could just buy a proper car and get a 911. +++
