The R8 V10 uses a 5.2 litre FSI engine, based on the unit in the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4


Yeah I know but it's still not the same car to me, I hate the R8 personally, but that's me. I've always had a thing for a Gallardo I guess, one of my favs

If you're going to buy a Lambo, make sure the doors open upwards....

BTW LP670-SV

There's a guy who works at the local Earls restaurant who sometimes gets to drive his dad's Gallardo to work, he just bought it used from USA. Great looking car, although this one is kinda plain, needs repainting maybe. It has only a few thousand km but looks several years old.



A local (BC) dealer has a 2008 Murcielago for sale. A few months ago they wanted over $390K!

some tool rolls through my neighbourhood all summer long in a vert gallardo. dude has to be like 6'6+ ...his head is outside/above the open roof by a mile. its looks ridiculous...car sounds nice though as he usually leaves it in 1st gear and then just speeds up/slows down lol

ive seeen him a couple times with the roof closed and he has to lean so far forward...its like a clown car.

I like where they went with the style... I mean it is a little more bland but I want to see how the 2.0T and the GLI will look.

Lol...

The reason it doesn't have scissor doors is because the R8 doesn't have them...

They are the same basic car...

Yah it's a great looking car and I'm obviously a big VW guy but they have really cheaped out with their cars the last couple years...

Open fenders, no insulation in the hood, amongst other things...

They've even gone back to the rop rod for the hood and if you push down on it even a little too hard, that thing will bend like it's made out of paper...

They'd better have kept the Touareg up to standards cause I plan on getting one in 4 years...

It has nothing to do with the R8... if Lambo wanted to give the Gallardo scissor doors they could have easily done so. Its mainly because vertical doors were only designed for 12 cylinder lambos... the flagship cars, all others come with conventional doors.

^^^

That's delusion right there...

Lambo didn't decide anything because the VAG Group makes all of those decisions...

It would cost too much to deviate from the platform shared with the R8 to change to scissor doors...

It's the same car bud...

Nope...its not IDENTICAL... they have similarities like an aluminum space frame, but the Audis is reworked, designed with fewer welds... and its the same width but the Audi is five inches longer and has a higher wheelbase. Unless you work on the Audi design team dont say things for the sake of saying them. You couldnt even recall the milage on your toureg and you want me to believe what you say about these cars
