Like his conservative brother, the A3 Sportback, the more radical RS3, based on the MQB modular transverse platform, but unlike him, here are widened tracks (1,599 mm at the front axle and 1,514 in the rear), an address variable steering ratio with specific setting for this version, a sport suspension 25 millimeters lower, and optionally, can be equipped with adaptive selection Audi Magnetic Ride. for the other reviews about the newest cars visit here.
In addition to receiving this swap engine it has also been equipped with bumpers of the aero package and a custom rear diffuser in carbon fiber, four tailpipes (as in the Z4 M), emblems V8 in the fins plus vinylated duotone body. Its interior also receives numerous changes, as they have vinylated carbon fiber parts in aluminum, part of the interior is upholstered in Alcantara, has specific semibaquets pedals and seats are also new.
Moreover, in the headquarters of the group they would be raising also extending its use to other models such as the Audi Q7 newcomer within 2-3 years, but a priori, only variant intended for the US market as its commercial viability in Europe would be compromised.
Although always it tends to evolve in the generational relay each model -in all aspects objectives- is clear that as more generations in history go back more charm and charisma are in that model. And that's just something we can truly experience when we get behind the wheel, but .... How to get behind the wheel of a vehicle which does not manufactured decades?
Volkswagen will introduce major changes to the chassis in front of the Golf R, with more than enough reasons for the difference in power between the two is closer to 120 horses. The Golf R420 will feature larger diameter brakes and suspension nearest circuit. The aerodynamic kit will also be different and items such as nozzles are larger and more prominent.
With this data in hand it is logical that have just been a few weeks, and already let see several prototype test by Germany and by the 'Ring. It was confirmed that the Golf R400 Street be even more potent than the prototype, approaching 420 hp and with a similar Audi RS3 Sportback, for example reliability. To equate reliability, Volkswagen will not install the 2.0-liter TFSI 4-cylinder carrying the prototype, and instead will place the already well known 5-cylinder 2.5 liter engine which incidentally, is the same as the the RS3 Sportback. This fact is also confirmed after they have been few assistants to the days of open testing at the Nurburgring, who have confirmed the extraordinary similarity in sound between the Golf R400 testing and RS3.
Equipped with a 6.9 liter V12 propeller of 612 hp with a maximum torque of 775 Nm, capable of 0-100 km / h in 3.8 seconds and reach a top speed of 320 km / h. To achieve such an arsenal of power metering in inexperienced hands, I was provided with a traction control, something that was not particularly common at the time.
Remember the legendary Mercedes CLK GTR? It is, without doubt, one of the street-legal supercar more thing that seemed AMG in its history. This vehicle was designed to participate in the GT World Championship back in 1997, but their participation in the championship according to the FIA regulations also involved 25 units to enroll street. And so it was, they had two mules development, seven units to 26 units and finally competition for street, of which 20 were 6 Coupe and Roadster.
Both technological products as automotive, as less time has elapsed since its release to the market, the more likely we have to be called to review failures-usually of little importance that have not been detected during the subsequent process of development and testing.
We can not deny that we are in a situation where it is essential to look at both the power and mechanics offered as fuel consumption and pollutant emissions. The Audi R8 has debuted at the Geneva Motor Show has done in standard guise, which now carries an enhanced and optimized version of the 5.2-liter V10, developing 540 horses this time in the base version and 610 hp in the variant V10 Plus, said soon. It is a very wide margin of power that certainly suggests that the guys from Ingolstadt launch time a version of lower power and serve as access to the brand, reducing the current access base price R8, more than 190 thousand euros in Spain.
It is interesting to note that when Audi R8 debuted in its original form did with the engine block 4.2-liter FSI V8 that left at any time to be optimized and prepared derivative engine carrying the RS4 of the time. An outdated engine for many -then not so much that in a few years finally be completely superseded by the 5.2-liter V10 that could also be found in Lamborghini. Viewing the difference, who would choose a naturally aspirated V8 and the old school and old technology face a ten-cylinder with seal Lamborghini? Still, Audi is clear: there is more chance of seeing a V6 rather than a V8.
