Very few street-legal cars can do this.
AUTOBAHN - Germany
Pay attention to the 2:00 mark.
Ignore the bad electonica music.

nice car.....


audi makes a good handling car, did alot of cool driving with the Polizei while in Germany. In my opinion, handling, stopping, evasive driving, the Audi was out performing (esp. the A-4, didn't have this S-8) the mercs, BMWs and VWs.

the S-8 was just re-introduced in the states after it vanished for years. If you've seen Ronin the S-8 was the choice for their heist. I saw one when I recently purchased my A-4 and IT IS BADA$$! 109k puts you in one. The salesman stated that he'd leased one out recently and the note was 2,300 per month. <- LOL.

ouch, I can't afford that. I could only afford to drive one, when your tax dollars went toward the training......

oh, yeah. Thanks, BTW. :)

here it is link form. This is the school I went to in Germany, for a week of fun. the old instructor was funny as all hell, and he's still there.... I went through about 10 years ago.

the skid plate is the best part of the class, I hadn't seen it in any other driving school.... it is shown several times, but at the 2:17 mark you can see it pretty well before a SUV drives over it. It simulates losing traction or being hit in the rear side. you don't know which way it will shoot until you drive over it and you have to react. the bigger cars were ok, but we drove over in a little SLK that was near impossible to correct.

oh, and SimplyRed, the A-4 did very well at this school, the j-turns, reverse outs, skid plate, thresh-hold breaking, etc. I loved that car.

Ah, get an M5, it has a 507 hp V10 and will cost more than $20,000 less than the S8. Oh, and if you take the regulator off it'll do 200mph.

Jefe: We have many beautiful pinatas for your birthday celebration, each one filled with little surprises!

El Guapo: How many pinatas?

Jefe: Many pinatas, many!

El Guapo: Jefe, would you say I have a plethora of pinatas?

Jefe: A what?

El Guapo: A *plethora*.

Jefe: Oh yes, El Guapo. You have a plethora.

El Guapo: Jefe, what is a plethora?

Jefe: Why, El Guapo?

El Guapo: Well, you just told me that I had a plethora, and I would just like to know if you know what it means to have a plethora. I would not like to think that someone would tell someone else he has a plethora, and then find out that that person has *no idea* what it means to have a plethora.

Jefe: El Guapo, I know that I, Jefe, do not have your superior intellect and education, but could it be that once again, you are angry at something else, and are looking to take it out on me?

I like what Audi puts in their cars, but they never really make a sports car. The last thing they put out was a TT Coupe and this S8 could kick that thing's ass any day.
