Default I know you're a newbie on here...

So I won't hold that against you. But since you've shown no other intention than being a troll around here, I'm not going to waste my time arguing over somthing so petty. You can throw out all the sarcasm you want, but the truth is, yes I am considered somewhat of an expert and asset on these forums.

Default Expert?

Where I come from, the term "expert" only comes from working closely with quantifiable data day after day after day,.. and not made by trying to impress people with "I drove a Gallardo" statements.
I'm around hi performance cars everyday, and I heard nothing special in that video. Nothing... And there is nothing there to suggest otherwise. But I certainly don't profess myself, "expert," either. LOL

Default Good work inspector! How did you find that?

First pictures of the V10 in an R8 I have seen. It looks like it is pretty much ready for the production line.

I am surpised they did not start with a shot of the engine bay in the original video.

Default You don't think that...

The detailer who shot the vid wouldn't take pics as well? Of course he did.

Default Same as the LP560-4...

But should be slightly detuned 520 - 530hp in the R8 5.2.

Default it has the ALL LED headlights as well

I am not sure if Audi is too happy about the photos (when they see them)

unless it's all a big PR thing?
