Everyone's got a story of being killed...

OK, so after leaving my parents house in IN, I'm hading towards US 30 on one of the county roads east of Merrillville. A car pulls out in front of me, and from a distance, it looked like a Lambo. As I got closer, I see it's an Audi, a model I'd never seen, and R8. I follow this car all the way to 30, and we're both turning left to head towards I-65. At the light is 2 cars, the Audi, and me. Now just off of appearance and the way this thing sounded, I had a feeling this thing would be kinda quick.

The light turns green, and the two cars in fron turn left, one into the right lane, one into the left. The Audi floors it, and I follow suit while making the turn. Aaaaaannd.....The Audi slaloms the 2 cars and is GONE! I felt like I had forgotten to hit the gas pedal! Seemed like I passed the 2 cars in slow motion...LOL.

I know it wasn't a lined up race or anything, but I was expecting to be left behind quite that bad...LOL. Thankfully, after I got home and did some research, I determined this thing had a 5.2L V10 putting out about 518 hp, and only weighs 3500, about 700 lbs less than my bee with 4 bowling balls and golf clubs in the trunk. So I didn't feel too bad about being whomped on...LOL.

Yeah, I just did a little more research...I'm pretty confident it was the V10 manual...$150,000 according to kbb.com for a 2010 model. I'm OK with not being able to hang with that...LOL

I am impressed he actually played with it. Alot of those guys won't really open their cars up.

By "those guys"...I mean rich people.

If he DIDN'T open it up all the way, from what I saw, I'd be almost scared to see it all out...LOL

It happens to us all. I had a lady in a new GT500 stalk me the other day. Sounds like you found your experience amusing as well.

Dude, those R8s are nasty. Did you see where the guy put one in a lake? At least he gave you a run though

Those R8's are boss! There is a white one here in Laredo; the owner's a prick.
You should go to his house one night with a rattle can and paint it hot pink then.

Nice try. Yeah you must have not known about the R8. LOL They are fast. I still dont think they are fast for what its made for though. The new Viper would knock its doors off.

Yeah, I had never seen or heard of one before. Kinda cool to get smoked every now and then...gives a little motivation to mod and make the Bee go faster. If only my wallet was as motivated...LOL

Speed is just a question of how much money you want to spend, that being said there is always someone faster.. Nice run regardless..:TU:
