Interesting comments and I agree.I understand what Scaghead means in relation to “stealth” not so much under the radar but more “ you fkin want some “ look 😀 I’ve got a day in my local Audi demonstrator next week👍 List price is over £90k with ceramics and carbon pack. I too will report back. The main down side with this one is it’s red😝

I was actually pleasantly surprised

Nice place to be sat in

Handling was ok and because of the extra torque it was more adjustable.

Sound was ok but clearly no V8 but then I was on track at brands on Monday and there was one on track there with me.

When I was following it, it looked a bit messy but they that could be the ham fisted driver.

However when I was watching it you couldn't barely hear at all from the outside, sounded so dull!

I've specced up a 4 which comes to £72k for same spec as my current one or £85k with a really want spec.

Just seems so much!

Just collected this for a few days👍 It’s certainly quick and sounds ok with the sports exhaust. Not my choice of colour. Would I pay best part of a £100k ??? Noooooo!!!!!

£85k ?? I was told more but still a lot of money. As you said it’s nice and it’s quick but IMO it just doesn’t look like an RS. It needs bigger arches more aggressive. The display doesn’t even fold away which I think looks pants especially when you have HUD.
I’m sure I will enjoy for a day or two 👍

I got the printout showing £85k

Indeed anyway

I'm looking at an AMG again tomorrow for another drive.

It was only a passing comment from the sales manager when I said I was going to rag it. He said I’d rather you didn’t that’s a £100k 😂😂

Agreed - I like the fact you can drop the screen on the 8V. Good at night when you are on the motorway, don't nee the sat nav etc
