I’ve always said, “Need to get out to the track,” or “Gotta go to one of those high performance driving schools the Club does.”  Yeah, yeah.  Well, I did it.  Now I’m addicted.  Here’s the problem, however.  I have a car that cost almost fifty grand, and it would be the only thing in my current sparse stable I could take out to the track that could “hang.” I really don’t want to replace the brakes, the brake fluid, the tires, possibly the rear floor (Mike?), my bank account, my ego, my engine (hey look, anyone is at risk of money-shifting).  So I’ve been looking for a track car.  Something that can be modified with a proper roll cage if I get that that far into it; something that I won’t care if I ding up.  My results are set forth below, and they are just off the top of my head.  Feel free to add more cars via “comments”: Continue reading

What can I say about this work of art that hasn’t already been said?  This thing is unbelievable to look at, especially with the stainless, silver, or carbon “blades” on the sides.  Get it in dark grey with the silver or even carbon blade.   I thought the superbowl commercial was dead-on, as well.  This car is really going to put Audi back on the map especially as a real alternative to Porsche (despite Porsche’s threatened cross-pollination with VAG).  I’d love to see the planned RS8 go up against the Porsche 997 Turbo and Ferrari 430 in a head-to-head competition.  I just bought a Powerball ticket.
