Agreed.
€50k seems like great value.

Did anyone watch the vid? What was that thing cutting up the inside when he went first hit WOT?
I can't help thinking it's not really that fast a car on track, a lot of cars were pulling on him earlier coming out of corners, yes he built speed quicker once straightened out but then he was short shifting and rolling off the gas earlier too. For the weight and the power, it probably needs better brakes. I felt that his driving style looks like it was all down to the brake limitations. If all of the other cars on the track were about 700HP and his was 900HP - 1200HP, it kinda calls into question of tractability when building such a car. Yes, big power can be achieved but at what cost? I'd rather have a car that can deploy all of its power, almost all of the time.

Yeah great value. c.£42k and an ex DTM pace car.

I don’t think the video car is the RS4. The RS4 is what went flying past, so not the best video to show of it.

I think the video is of inside a BMW E30 turbo race car, as Marc says the RS4 in the advert went flying past :jump:

REally! That's retarded. That's the video he was using to tout the performance of the car?!?!? A millisecond of footage at the start?

Sorry bud, too good an opportunity to pass up lol

Totally agree its a bizarre way to sell a very interesting car, think he might have his pistons mixed up, but a very cool piece of kit and would be nice to see it come over here to compete in Time Attack, although APT have retired the Evo as theres no competition so might get them back out lol

Yeah. I was way off. Very confusing video to highlight a car's performance.
