I gotta ask. What the heck were you driving?

911 Turbo S with upgraded intercoolers, wastegate actuators, silicone boost hoses, software tuned for about 30% more boost, European spec suspension, and a few other little goodies.  Triple black convertible.  Way to much fun.Smile

It's basically just a Lambo Gallardo in different clothing, which is to say it's awesome. It's on my top 5 list of "fun" cars that I got to drive that I'll never own.1.) Godzilla (Seriously, the Nissan GTR is more awesome than anything...ever.)2.) Porsche 911 Turbo (As sweet as a sports car can get)3.) Chevy Z06 (LS7) (that thing is nutty from a stop.)4.) The Audi (closest I'll ever come to driving a bull.)5.) Lotus Esprit V8 (a twin turbo v8 go-kart)The Audi is by far the best behaved if I had to drive one "daily" (although the Nissan is surprisingly close) but I'd take any of them if anyone is offering.
Oh. My. God. So jealous. You are a lucky, lucky man. I only have experience with Porsches-- a few 911 turbos of different years. I would love to drive the others. What do you sell?

i was at a horse show a few months back and a guy had to park his new R8 on the side of a two lane country road...half on and half off! the pitch up the gravel drive way was too steep for him to pull onto the show grounds so he just left it on the side of the road. oh-yeah, it was at the top of a hill on a blind curve. i wasn't sure whether to be jealous or appauled.

there's a huge billboard on the mail freeway in the city where i live that says something like this...."someone in your area just bought an R8...slower traffic please keep right". i thought that was kind of funny. and, it's advertising gold becuase my area is very much a keep-up-with-the-jones' type of town.

Some of my favorite cars had previous owners. Those sound like fun toys. And you've got bikes, so there's that..

I'll work on a pic.  Here is a video comparing the two by my favorite car guys.  At about 7:00 illustrates why my wife will no longer ride as a passenger with me.

I can't tell if you're messing with me or not, and I'll worry about it if I don't respond (I'm a total dork like, btw). 

I was trying to make a joke about the sexeh nature of your video.  You know, like bike porn...except car porn...
