The Audi TT Turbo vs Audi TT V6 Quattro- Which is better?

When the new Audi TT hits the market mid 2007, you might be wondering which version is best?  Mr Jeremy Clarkson claims , who has of course already driven both, likes the 2 litre turbo and actually prefers it over the 3.2 V6. Why?  Clarkson believes with the 2 litre turbo , which he describes as being "murderous" compared to the "creamy and interesting"  V6, one  gets a better value.  Hence more
money for you to spend on tuner parts such as wheels , and a upgraded turbo chip in my own opinion. 

I will take Clarkson advice on this , if and when I am in the market for a new sport car in the future.   Later on in the article  Clarkson  reasoning behind not choosing the  3.2 V6 Quattro , is because  he would much rather have a  Alfa  Brera V6 Awd automobile- we here in America can not reason with this because Alfa's are not available here yet!  I have seen pictures of the Brera though and it is dead sexy. Ultimately though, Clarkson forgets to mention that the turbo based TT was not quattro hence it's similiar performance to the V6 based TT.  Evidently for a consumer it really depends on whether you need the all wheel drive.

Which would you choose based on styling?

Orange Porsche 911 GT3 RS

These pictures are a nice find if your are a Porsche 911 GT3 fan( who isn't).  It has already hit european roads(or should I say tracks?) and is set to release in the Us spring 2007.  Drivers will love the 415 hp engine and 4 second 0-60 time.  Compared to the regular GT3, this car is 44mm wider, hence much better for the track.

New 2008 Aston Martin DBS Debut in Casino Royale is Out of Control!


(The 2008 Aston Martin DBS is built @ the British Gaydan plant and uses a Ford engine from Cologne plant.)

When I saw the previews for the Bond film, Casino Royale,  I  knew I would end up seeing it for two reasons: one for the vehicles : The Asty, and two : for the girls (Miss Eva Green was very good in the film, so naturally beautiful.) The 2007 Aston Martin DBS makes a few appearances (looks and sounds beautiful) in the film before doing 7 canon rolls , totally destroying the car. (I would give out why he crashes it , but you really should go see it ).  Aston Martin is rumored to be sold by the end of this year- and the Britsh brand hopes to stay in the Uk.  Who do you think will pick up Aston Martin?

Audi TT Out Now Down Under!


Seeing that the new 2007 seven speed S-tronic Audi TT is out in Australia , makes me want to make a reservation with Qantas right away for an immediate test drive of the vehicle in or Around the beauitul Byron Bay.  On the auto web site , CARSguide.com.au they show a picture of the Audi TT and writing under it that states - "not  a drift car."  I find this quite interesting because it shows the popularity of the sport drifting in Australia.  In USA , one probably would never see this label under the Audi TT.  What does this say about the car culture in Australia compared to here?
