Default Pics from the R8 I saw today

So I was at work today and one of the guys I work with came running in a told me there was some crazy car that just pulled into the parking lot. So I told him to man the fort while I cruised out there and took a look.

Half way out I realize what it was and seriously got the chills. When I got up near the car I noticed these 3 guys off to the side a little bit and asked them if that was there car. They all nodded yes. Got into a little bit of conversation with them about what they were doing.

They came up here to Flagstaff, AZ to do some high altitute testing on it and they said they will be here til the end of the week and then they would be off.

Only one of them really spoke English and didn't want to share a whole lot about it. Other than just basic stuff. 4.2L engine putting out 420 h/p and nothing else past that.

For your viewing pleasure.....my crappy phone pics

Default Thanks for these. Audi sure is toning

Default Really? I don't know much about the car or what the previously had planned for it.

Just a couple pics and then what I saw today.

I think it would look much better with the lowers painted, and different wheels. Also a different color would be a plus.

I wish I could of got shots of the inside of it but they weren't having any of that. The interiour looked amazing.

Default really? Besides paint it's really hard to pick out the differences between this and the concept
