Frequent Auto Opinions: 2012 Audi R8 V10

This bleached warrior with a nutcracker of an motor has just one function: embarrass everything with a Ferrari badge. Also, thank you to Matt D’Andria from and co-host of Carcast with Adam Carrola for guest-starring in this review by way of Skype.

  1. "Embarrass anything wearing a Ferrari badge" AHAHAHAHAHA You obviously don't acknowledge the existence of the 599GTB, 458 Itália, 488GTB, F12 Berlinetta, Enzo, LaFerrari, Speciale, Scuderia, FF

  2. That speech on the end was more beautiful than anything I wrote in highschool or college creative writing. Such passion and understanding, and really hit home with me since I too, am one of those types of guys, who drives an entry level sports vehicle (although sport bike, not car), and isn't interested at turning every head out there. One who doesn't own the flashy, or highest BHP bike, but one who does genuinely use 100% of the BHP I have. Sure, it's the smallest CBR they make, but it's mine. I've pushed it as far as it goes, not just in top speed, but cornering and breaking too. I know one day it will be too small, and that day may have already come, but there is something about scraping pegs on what's considered "barely a sport bike" that gets admiration from the true riders I meet. Sure, anyone can buy a bike and enjoy the thrill of riding, but there's a certain rider who doesn't shame anything below the very best. That middle aged rider who looks at my 125 the way a father looks at his son when he finishes Stairway to heaven on his hand me down guitar for the first time. He won't be a pro anytime soon, but there's a certain fondness for the newby's who love all of their craft, not just the extremes. That rider is who I actually enjoy talking to. I guess what I'm trying to say is, if you have to ask what the horsepower is, or why someone would ever buy that vehicle, than you're just never going to understand. You either get it, or don't. It's about genuinely loving, and defending, the vehicle you chose to get not because you needed it, but wanted it.

  3. Valentine One radar detector. Mah man. Heard it on startup, I hear that glorious sound of "screw you cops" every time I start my car

  4. In a weird way the A-R8V10 has no TRUE competitor. Please correct me if I'm wrong, as I'm more of a muscle car guy. Also, by true competition, I don't mean a $300,000 front engined twin turbo V8.

  5. -"If we were in a situation where it would have been uh, socially and legally acceptable could we keep up with that guy?
    -Uh, no.
    -No? Oh…
    -You would destroy him."

  6. Is that the same guy that owns the Tesla from the Tesla review? If so, WHAT THE HELL DOES HE DO FOR A LIVING TO OWN AN R8 AND A TESLA??

  7. Great stuff. Can't believe you did the entire show on Route 46 & a bit of I-80 all in Parsippany. The second fastest highway in Jersey was just a hop and skip away (I-280). Would have loved to see that thing open up!
