  2. I definitely like a few of the pieces!
  3. I know they released this one at Los Angeles Auto Show, but thought it might be good to start putting some of these here for you guys. Seems like someone would buy one of these! -- PRESS RELEASE -- All-new Audi RS Q8 makes global debut at Los Angeles International Auto Show All-new RS Q8 is the first RS-SUV from Audi in America Dominating performance of an RS, everyday functionality of an SUV, and the dynamic design of an Audi coupe Audi RS Q8 is fastest production SUV to lap Nürburgring racetrack with an official time of 7 minutes and 42.2 seconds LOS ANGELES, November 20, 2019 – The all-new Audi RS Q8 will make its global debut today at the 2019 Los Angeles International Auto Show. The Audi RS Q8 combines the genes of a high-performance RS model with the practicality of an SUV and the dynamic design of an Audi coupe. Powertrain and performance The all-new Audi RS Q8 features a biturbo V8 engine to deliver exhilarating performance and driving dynamics, setting a new standard as the prestigious spearhead of the RS model line. The RS Q8 recently became the fastest production SUV to lap the renowned Nürburgring racetrack with an official time of 7 minutes and 42.2 seconds. The 4.0-liter V8 in the RS Q8 delivers an impressive 441 kW (600 ps) and 800 Nm (590.0 lb-ft) of torque. The turbocharged engine with direct injection accelerates the large SUV from 0-100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 3.8 seconds and achieves a top track speed of 250 km/h (155.3 mph) or 305 km/h (189.5 mph) when equipped with the RS ceramic brakes. The power of the 4.0 TFSI flows to the quattro permanent all-wheel drive system via the standard eight-speed Tiptronic® transmission. Wheel-selective torque control can help enhance handling by ensuring additional traction across each axle through individual-wheel braking application. During dynamic cornering, the quattro sport rear differential distributes drive torque between the rear wheels as required. This active torque vectoring helps improve traction, stability and dynamics. The adaptive air suspension with controlled damping means the RS Q8 is equally at home on or off the paved road. Its RS-specific damper tuning offers drivers a choice between long-distance comfort and high performance. The electromechanical active roll stabilization (EAWS) minimizes body roll while cornering at speed. The all-wheel steering allows for greater agility at low speeds and improved stability at high speeds. With variable ground clearance, short overhangs and hill descent control, the new Audi RS Q8 can carry on confidently when paved roads end. Drivers can customize their driving experience through the standard Audi drive select system with seven different profiles: comfort, auto, dynamic, allroad, offroad and the individually configurable RS-specific modes RS1 and RS2, which can be activated directly via the “‘RS-MODE’” button on the steering wheel. The Audi drive select setting influences the engine and transmission management, power steering, the air suspension, all-wheel steering and engine sound. Exterior and Interior Design With the octagonal Singleframe and the RS-specific radiator grille, the RS Q8 has an even more dominant appearance. This combined with the front air inlets in gloss black and the blade in matte aluminum perfectly highlights the athletic character of the large SUV. The dynamic roofline ends in gently inclined D-pillars, which are supported by the wide, pronounced wheel arches, paying homage to the vehicle’s quattro® DNA, creating an unmistakable Audi silhouette. An RS roof-edge spoiler provides a striking finish at the top and provides downforce on the rear axle for improved balance at high speeds. The interior of the new RS Q8 features a clean and refined design. The slim instrument panel and strong horizontal lines convey a feeling of spaciousness. The central element in the cockpit is the MMI® touch response system. With its black-panel look, it almost dissolves into a large, black surface when switched off. Special RS displays in the Audi virtual cockpit and MMI display provide information such as output, g-forces, lap times, temperature, torque and tire pressure. The shift light display prompts the driver to upshift when the rev limit is reached. The optional head-up display also offers several RS-specific graphics. The RS Q8 further demonstrates its everyday usability in the rear. A sliding three-seat rear bench is standard. With the seat backrests folded down, the luggage compartment under the power rear hatch holds up to 60.7 cubic feet. The first RS-SUV from Audi in America, the Audi RS Q8 is expected to arrive in the U.S. in 2020 and will be available for customer orders, subject to a later announcement. U.S. power and performance specifications will become available closer to market introduction. – End –
  4. Last week
  5. You were the one that helped me when I had the green diablo. Thanks Jeff! Are you still at the dealership in Newport?
  6. Early warning sign is a white dust that builds up on valve covers. I was replacing headers on 1999 Diablos for this issue under warranty they would start leaking that soon. Diablo had 2-year warranty. The first one to start leaking is almost always the left rear header.
  7. -- PRESS RELEASE BELOW -- Even beyond the realms of Porsche, Jacky Ickx is one of the greatest sports car drivers to have ever lived. But to the close-knit community of engineers and racers who worked with him in Weissach for the best part of a decade, he is a true icon. To celebrate the Belgian maestro’s 75th birthday, and his invaluable contribution to Porsche’s sporting success through the Seventies and Eighties, the decision was taken to create a limited edition 911 in Ickx’s honour. The initiative for this came from the Belgian Porsche importer “D’ieteren”. The idea took shape in 2018 with the arrival of the all-new 992. This would be the first special edition of the new model, turning to the talents of Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur to produce a unique creation that paid fitting homage to one of sportscar racing’s greatest talents. Experts from Style Porsche and the Belgian Porsche importer D’Ieteren also played a role in designing the latest Legend Edition. The decision was made to base the design around Ickx’s trademark blue and white helmet. The car in a question, a 911 Carrera 4S, was therefore finished in a bespoke ‘X Blue’, making this the first 992 to receive Porsche’s coveted Paint To Sample. A badge showing the Belgian flag and Jacky Ickx’s signature on the driver-side B-pillar takes the driver designation already famous in the world of motorsport. This unique colour has also made its way onto the 20/21inch Carrera Classic wheels. Offset by subtle white accents, they provide another reference to Ickx’s helmet, which traditionally features a fine white line around the visor. This detail required the use of advanced laser engraving by Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur. The cabin is trimmed in black leather with Pebble Grey cross stitching on the dashboard, door panel and rear trim, all of which was painstakingly finished by hand. The ‘X’ shape of the stitching was chosen as another subtle reference to the man of the moment. Other unique interior features include Pebble Grey piping on the 18-way Sports seats and ‘911’ lettering on the headrests, something that is not available on standard Carrera 4S models. The seat backs are also finished in leather - another unique detail of this new Legend Edition. Other special design elements include a leather central armrest embossed with Ickx’s autograph and the ‘Belgian Legend Edition’ moniker on the car’s carbon door sill guards. Leaving no stone unturned, even the colour-matched key fob features the six-time Le Mans winner’s signature. The Belgian Legend Edition is strictly limited to just 75 units, one for each year since Ickx’s birth, and will only be available in Belgium. Jacques Bernard Ickx – Jacky Ickx for short – was born on January 1, 1945, in the Belgian capital of Brussels. As a former Formula 1 and sports car racing driver, he can look back on a long and successful career. Jacky Ickx is regarded as one of the most successful drivers ever to race, and for good reason – he has competed in a wide range of motorsport events and has countless victories under his belt.

  10. I wouldn't normally associate Vorsteiner with subtle; but my goodness these parts look good and not over the top. Definitely makes the Urus just a touch more aggressive!
  11. Just bought tickets to see Matchbox 20 and the Wallflowers. Time for some music from my High School years.
  12. If the make the next one a V8 my SVJ just became the best car decision I've ever made lol.

  14. Thanks Kratos. The journey is long, "with many a winding turns" but the rewards are immense. Still working on the SVJ & keep reminding myself how small Lambo is and good things take time. I'm in this for the long haul, so no sweat.
  15. Doc, I've been a fan of yours for a while. I feel like I'm a younger version of you, lol (so many similarities). Exciting stuff and I'm following your journey. Thanks for sharing it with us.
  16. Ya ..... well if you want put a turbo on the Avy lots of power ,but I still love the looks especially the sound of it in comparison to McLaren GT2RS etc. McLaren bore me. You can get your walk behind Lawnmower to go amazing speed but who cares? I used to do this on Motorcycles but nothing beats the good ole naturally aspirated V 12 or anything for that matter.
  17. So true. People keep saying why you not getting a 720, that AV is a slow tank turd. My reply is the V12 sound. I don't care how fast a car is, if it sounds like a weed eater I don't want it.
  18. Thank you ! Have specialist working with special cars (Rebellion Racing, Le Mans Series Team)
  19. Nobody buys the Aventador because it is faster than the F8 or the 720S. Because it is not. It is in some aspects a bit of a dinosaur. People buy it because it is the only supercar with a V12 still left. All the other V12s are in GTs or hypercars. Lamborghini have that market locked the f**** down. So why in the world would they want to go V8 and fight the cars which people who buy bulls find boring because of their engines?
  20. My home town did an article on my project https://pamplinmedia.com/ceo/162-news/448617-365267-making-the-list-of-top-100-rides
  21. Quick vid discussing exhaust issues to look for if you are looking to purchase 98-2001 diablo.
  22. If the V12 will no longer be used in the Aventador successor it is time to get hold of an SVJ ... that will be the last V12 Lamborghini ever then, so it will become valuable in the future ... just drive it a while and then put her into hybernation for a decade or so ... I need to have a talk with my bank manager ... lol
