Why does Audi continue to tease me with the R8? Can't they just give me a media fleet car for a week? Heck, even a long weekend — I wouldn't be upset with lopping a couple of days off the end (actually, yes I would) if it gives me a better chance of snagging one. But why must they continue to tease me? I'd been hearing about the R8 being spotted just about everywhere in the area — Ferndale, Royal Oak and Farmington Hills — and now the auto company all about Bruce is going too far. Now they're frigging following me. Two days ago I was pulling out onto Woodward Avenue on my way to 696, heading out to Ann Arbor for the evening. As I'm taking the turnaround just north of 6th, what do I see on the other turnaround? Right there, almost in spitting distance, was a silver R8. Tears streaming down my face, I began to scream epithets as I raised my camera to snag some shots. But, despite the pain and hurt, I soldiered on to Ann Arbor and by the time I got there, my eyes were finally dry. And then, out of the corner of my eye I saw it — a silver flash on Main Street behind me. I didn't think it was possible, so I took the next right, and looped back around to catch it in the act. Sure enough, there it was — another silver R8. I feel beaten. Below, you'll find the photographic proof of Audi's desire to cock-tease me. I feel broken and empty inside now. Why does my Eleanor forsake me and why won't Audi heal my pain?!?!

Ray, I'm sure this won't help...I just read the EVO review of it and apparently it is all that an a bag of chips. Beat the time of the Konisegg on EVO's Bedford Aerodrome course.
