Audi R8 Pricing: Prepare to throw down over $109,000 for the new Audi R8 sports coupe powered by a manual transmission. R-tronic , which Luxvelocity loves, will bring up the price another 9grand to $118,000. Standard options with the new R8 are the Bang and Olufsen sound system to keep our ears happy while we are driving, bi-xeon headlights and very aggressive 19 inch racing wheels. [Via Audi]
Auto-moto-und-sport it got us to thinking- We would definitely like to see the new S3 Cabriolet Stateside but are we just getting our hopes up? The new S3 has not even made it stateside yet. We'lll keep our L / V crossed. These are automobiles Americans want-
The all new V12 fire breathing Mercedes CL65 AMG has made its debut at the Amsterdam Auto Show. The automotive genius at World Car FansWorld Car Fans reports through translation that the new AMG vehicle will boast god like 612 horsepower and a blistering 0-60 time of 4.4 seconds. Could this car possibly be unveiled at the NY Show as well? Time shall tell.
(Is there a 414bhp and 317lb ft RS4 engine in this A-Coupe?)
With the confirmation of an Audi RS5 in the works by almighty Ingolstatd one could easily take a look at these spy photos and suddenly think Audi RS5-. Car Magazine reports that evidently this may be the RS5 "with the S5 being already signed off" and this car wearing such heavy spy camouflage. Whether these new photos are RS5 or not, be sure that Audi is prepping one bad coupe to spar off with the new M3 coupe.
(Big wheels/ Big Brakes - RS5 is rumored to come with R8 Ceramic Brakes )
(Exhaust looks very S5- but could be just a disguise)
Who is Mercede's mystery AMG vehicle at the New York Auto Show? Damn good question as it has yet to be unveiled. Speculations point to the new Mercedes Benz CL 65AMG. While some say it may be the CL , others still think that it could be the new Mb C63 AMG . Luxvelocity hopes it is the later of the two.
