So here she is people, NU03NUT rides again!

Well its no secret I've hankered after one of these for over a year, I absolutely loved my C6, in my view the C6 RS6 is a classic, the last of the big block turbo powered mile munchers, so easily tuneable and so blooming' fast in a straight line... mind-blowing!! But...

I've developed a taste for track driving, the C6, as fast as it was (9min 20s round the ring, 4 up on only my 4th lap ever and I'd easy get it round in the 8mins now!) but followed Dave IR8V8 round Combe at ADI and compounded what I kinda knew... the R8 is a special car on track, and thankfully I now know it's a dream to drive on the road day to day too!

Now before you say OMG Nige you didn't seriously buy an R8 to track, no I didn't really, however my car is a weekend wonder and I couldn't justify having the C6 and a track toy so I bit the bullet while I'm still young  

So, selling cars is a royal pain in the arris I now know, I saw and test drove this car I bought 3 weeks before I sold the C6... yes that's three weeks climbing the walls hoping it didn't get sold but I hope you'll agree I picked the right one. I didn't want another black car, as hot as the R8 looks in black I fancied a change and I'm so very pleased I went with this one!

IBIS White R8 V10 Coupe R-Tronic:

Carbon Side Blades / Carbon Inlays / Carbon Engine Bay Trim / Carbon Door Sills / Extended Leather Pack 3 / Alcantara Head Lining / Parking System Advanced / Cruise / Homelink / High Beam assist / Milltek Racing Exhaust - on top of the Std spec to which I've added Carbon Mirror Housings and have Black Exhaust Tips and GT rear lights sitting here waiting to go on. The Mov'it Ceramics are going on soon and a trip to MRC planned.

Pics... loads, I make no excuse as the R8 is one sexy looking car in my opinion...

well done mate very nice
big mac

Very, very nice Nigel

Very nice Nigel.

How does the V10 FSI compare to the V10 TFSI?
supersi

Dream machine  .... Lovin the cover too

Your a lucky man

Jealous mate, that is a proper car.

What sort of power can MRC get out of the V10?

Very different tbh, but then very different cars also... the R8 is very quick but lacks that immense torque of the C6. A tuned C6 defies physics, your brain never gets used to the way it shifts once into illegal speeds.

The R8 is very tail happy too, caught me out a couple of times in the wet, love it!!

The last one I saw them do (Map + Filters) came out at 587PS I think

How much of a bump is that over stock?

I wonder what it would be if it had one of those TTS superchargers fitted!!

Very Very nice looking car Nige,well done. Gotta do it while you can ehh Look forward to seeing it on Tuesday.

I met with Nige this morning pre my zorst fitting

WOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOW !!!

Nige's car is utter PERFECTION !

stunning

never knew Ibis white could have such a gloss on it

It is breathtakingly beautiful

and the Milly on it sounds evil !

Thanks Dave, I'm not brave enough to turn ESP off on the road... yet!! hehe

And herd you coming, yours currently looks like this... SIZE of that Std Muffler!!!...

Nudenut

I had a Gig DJ'ing in Kent on Saturday night, obviously my kit isn't gonna fit in the R8 but it just so happens I know it fits like a glove in a C6 RS6...

So Adam (Speedfr38ky) kindly offered me his pride & Joy for the night and I trusted him with my new baby win/win me thinks!

Cars returned to their rightful owners on Sunday with Adam providing a bit of history from his long night in the big city...























Nice work Adam!!

jockthedog

Almost too beautiful? ....

Are you going to track this car at all?

Prob not, given the lickable white paint and all, but if you are, I'd love to do some laps behind and in front of you in the GTR with the cameras on - see how the cars compare and get you some on-track footage of yourself.

I'm thinking of offering a service, recording peeps driving (on-track only), for a small fee of course (although cover the petrol and I'd be there in a flash!). That's for another thread on another forum.
RS4Jules

Simply stunning,ibis and carbon,the perfect combination  
jockthedog

Aye Jules, I've never been a great fan of the carbon bodywork but it does work well with the white.
aka_dk

stunning is not the word

just like loud is not the word for mine

we need to invent new words
marc1

Wow, that looks gorgeous Nige. Congratulations, if ever there was a car to replace your C6, this is the one.  How long can you resist  adding twin turbo's to it?
speedfr38ky

That was one hell of a one night stand !

Note, how I managed to park her in the "G" spot at the Dorchester...!!
Not a coincidence   ! It has that effect on the ladies....incl Mariah Carey who gave a nice little smile as we all rocked up together. hehe!!

Seriously though, the moral of the story is true friendship with genuinity trust and respect counts for a hell of a lot and that I can tell you means more than anything else.

You're welcome mate... At the end of the day you're also trusting me to look after your (no longer made C6) RS6 too, that's not gonna be easily replaced in event of the unthinkable, mine can be!  

Thanks for the pics... Maria did tell me Mariah was staying there, all makes sence now     love the V12 Vantage too!
speedfr38ky

They actually moved the other two white cars there after I parked up in the R8, it was that slick! It was amongst good company.

Mariah's alright actually in real life allbeit for a huge sweat patch on the back of her dress, still wouldn't stop me from being her "dream lover" though..get her to buy me a few nice whips! Lol.
Virdee

Looks friggin amazing! Love every bit about it!

You want on the A40 tonight was you heading into London?

And who's was that G wagon next to you above?
JohnnyB

Really like this Nige looks awesome, love all the carbon bit's.

How does the performance compare with the RS6??

I bet the R8 V10 is'nt a patch on a formula one phoenix airfix car you can't drive in the rain.

If I may....

two totally different cars and interactive concepts.

the RS6 is an effortles performance car, for those who just want to pummel the road and the car does the work for you. jump in and go fast, computer game-ish. you have to point and squirt. faster in a straight line.

R8, requires way more from the driver, but thats the whole point, u have to be on the ball, more interactive, more fun. Its a rear wheel drive rear engine supercar. Not as quick in a straight line, but is for driver who want to tame a beast and round a track would be quicker over a lap. Great ride comfort too with the magnetic dampers and its got the front and rear roll stiffness just perfect to make for a lively car when ur in the mood and a comfortable everyday supercar aswell. better noise, the engine develops power in the high revs.

in summary, most people would be quicker on the road in a c6 as its easier to drive fast, but faster in the r8 on a track or a familiar road.

think Nige will agree.
aka_dk

i agree Adam

good summary
speedfr38ky

Chris Harris, eat yer heart out! Lol.
Nudenut

MMMMmmmmmm!

Nearly... see we're talking a tuned C6 against a stock R8 so far... after last nights fun I can't wait to get the tune done (booked the pipe today!) and Vbox it.

The R8 V10 Stock, straight line will near match the tuned C6 to 60mph (3.7 v 3.9) and 1/4 mile (11.97 v 12.01)

BTW - the R8 is Mid engined... but these guys think it's up front

http://www.torquestats.com/index.php?car_id=522

Tuned C6 say 750BHP @ 2100Kg = 357HP/Tonne
Tuned R8 say 585BHP @ 1620Kg = 361HP/Tonne

Throw in some corners and the R8 V8 is quicker than the tuned C6, hence my change!

But I've not got DAB TV any more and did feel classy driving Ads on Sat

No more Babestation on the TV when cruising home late at night then...

Thanks Alex, we did attract a lot of attention and from what I saw I was the only V10 there which was nice.
Alex@Fontain

Definitely, had a crowd around it all morning; the supercharged S5 next door looked a bit lonely in comparison.
aka_dk

think it helped also having all three of them together, but the V10 took the biscuit !
Alex_RS6

Bit late to the party but wanted to say congrats on the stunner!!

If you are ever in the Reading area let me know and I will take you for a tour of some of my fav countryside back-roads and see if you can keep up with my 911

After some deliberation have decided to retro fit the OEM ceramics on this car, one of the main factors being I want to run 19" wheels on track.

Hi Nigel, thanks for the hospitality last week, cars absolutely stunning and the soundtrack is bonkers!!!

As much as I loved the RS6, I prefer working on white opposed to black any day.

Few of the pics I took.









Catch up with you again soon.

ATB, Rob.
Nudenut

Thanks Rob... 110% top class work as always.

Just an amazing finish on the white, really do need sunglasses to look at it   Love the way the Carbon side blades polished up too!!

See you post my 'Ring trip at Easter!
