2008 Audi R8

I was reading off an online magazine, which i downloaded as a pdf from, called "Winding Road", that in by 2008, early-mid 2007 they will come out with a car called the R8, based of the design of the LeMans Quattro. I cannot get the picks off the pdf, although its only one pic, so if anyone can tell me how to pull pics i can paste it here. The specs they say are gonna b either a detuned Gallardo engine, the 5.0 liter V10 pushing 450bhp, or a version of the RS4's 414 bhp V8. Pricing they say should be close to $116000 usd.

i searched the forums and couldnt find anything similar, but if it is a repost, i apologize. and if i can get help with pullin the pick from the pdf, i would greatly appreciate it.

It's gonna be the RS4 V8 to begin with, with the V10 most likely being added once the Gallardo is upgraded further to stop them competing against each other

If they're stupid maybe..

I'm sure they won't be expecting a full race-bred Audi R8 sitting there when they're ready to pay.

yeah, cause the people who know of the race series would know its not the same car, and the other people wouldnt know of the race series so there really shouldnt be confusion. but then again you should be surprised about some people......

Did they expect people to believe this to be a Gallardo?

God awful looking thing.
