neu Audi S8.

the best luxury sedan in the world just got quite a bit quicker.

520hp.  4.0L Turbo V8.  0-60 in 4.2 seconds.  Do you know how it feels to be in a car this heavy and do 0-60 in 4.2 seconds?  I still remember riding in an older S55 AMG a few years ago and feeling what a 0-60 time in the 5.5 second range and feeling like I was in hyperspeed orbit around the streets.  4.2s is a big notch faster.  Looks great too, lots of presence.

When I was picking up my A3, I was waiting for some of the paperwork to get prepped—-and found myself dwelling in the showroom A8 they had, just wafting away in one of the most beautiful interiors i’ve ever sat in.  It was like sitting inside of a relaxed lounge, just pass me a scotch and a cigarette and let me instruct the driver where to go.

foto of the day: panamera

IEDEI loves the Porsche Panamera.  “WHY??” you say?  well after seeing it in person, taking a seat inside it, and just admiring the boldness of the design and features, it was hard to NOT like it.

The Cayenne was always a failure in design and execution, although it has proven to be quite popular to the SUV driver who always wanted a Porsche.

The Panamera is a different beast altogether.  It’s graceful, intimidating, and actually composed of quite a fascinating design.  Want proof?  Check out the Techart Porsche Panamera revealed at the Frankurt Auto Show last year.

Audi E-Tron Concept = 3rd Generation TT/R4?

So if you look at the pictures of the new Audi E-Tron concept, the car looks MUCH smaller than an R8.  It’s been described by some media as ‘wider and shorter than a Boxster”.  So is this the much rumoured debut of the Audi R4?

IT SEEMS LIKE IT IS!

Introducing: the Bugatti 16c Galbier

Finally, we have a glimpse of the newest, over-the-top amazing Bugatti.

8 tail pipes, a split-opening hood, insane chrome bodywork, a split line in the front windshield, a swooping rear end reminiscent of an old Bugatti Atlantic, Veyron-esque styling cues, Bentley-like size, and an insanely evil front headlight which reminds me of that weird old horror film The Car.

As usual with Bugatti—-it is completely insane. 800hp insane.  It’s got a W16 (similar to the one in the Veyron, but detuned) under the hood.  I’m assuming it is AWD.  Just take a bloody look at it will yer!! And watch the VIDEO at the end.

Here are the special ‘refinished” IEDEI photos of the new Bugatti 16c Galibier:
