    £50k for a Lamborghini V10... bargain or what. :eek: :D

    I wonder if this is confirmation that the next RS6 is going to be Lambo powered as well? :D

    So when does the A8 get scissor doors? I'd pay a lot of money to see German politicians trying to look graceful as they slide out of their limos. Yes, I'm fully aware that the Gallardo has normal doors.

    Get it in black with heavy tinted windows, buy a black suit and you too could protect the earth from the scum of the universe... :D

    The S8 is a beast anyway, at least the chassis should be able to handle the power, better brakes too.

    Got to be the best looking car on the market today. I wonder how the V10 Lambo engine will stack up to the W12 A8L?

    Did they increase the brake size? It seems Audi often forgets that one...

    It's not a weird grille. It's the new face of Audi. Look at the whole Audi line up!

    Yuck. Audi makes awesome cars. The new A8 is yet another fine example. Take a look at the S9 for another fine example.

    Yes they did. At least you get the option as standard.

    You want a Toyota over an Audi with a fantastic engine? <shakes head, hears rattle>

    Looks like the VW Gruppe has some interesting exchanges happening. Here's to even more useful combinations. Somehow the V10 sounds better than a W12.

    *pulls his Gallardo to the side of the road, and lowers the drivers side window*

    Um.........I feel a bit ripped off right now.
