    so on tuesday night my sister got in a car wreck so we spent all night at the hospital. i went to get chinese with my friend chelsea and as we are leaving the parking lot i take a look across the street. i thought i saw a ferrari f430 in the gym parking lot across the street. but as i got closer i noticed it was a black audi r8. i had to get closer to take a look and after a couple minutes of admiring the owner comes out and climbs in. i had to tell him how bad ass it was and i asked if it handled like they say. he replied "want to find out?" after i realized he was serious he let me take it for a spin and get a feel for what 130,000.00 super car and 150 mph feels like, and i have to say it was phenominal!

    Jealous... I love the driving feel of German Automobiles. Nicest I've piloted were JC works Mini cooper S's, Audi TT Quattro, and VW GTi.

    Still love my Taco, though!:D

    PS. Hope your sister is doing well.

    1) Do you know Makr?

    2) That's badass that he let you drive it. The nicest car I've ever been in (well, besides my Taco :)) is my buddies dad's Aston V8 Vantage. It's slower than his sons Evo though haha.

    It does sound a little unbelievable, but I believe it. There was a H1. I was also admiring his ride when at all of the sudden he threw me the keys and told me to take it for spin. So I gladly did and had a blast for about 30 minutes. The guy didn't even come with me. Strange to say the least, but I guess some are just very entrusting. :confused:


    To the OP, Props of the test drive. I saw an R8 at the Denver International Airport a few months back and man was it a beauty to see in person. I could only imagine how it was to drive or even ride in.

    funny thing is this same guy was talking about how he let a guy take out his H1 with his kids, he said the guy was gone forever and he thought he stole it. the r8 handled like a dream, it reacted to my thoughts more then my movements. that feeling of being sucked back into the seat was addicting. and i thought my headlights turned some heads but this was incredible, people were flashing their brights, yelling, honking, waving at us, and it was awesome how much of a chick magnet that car was i wonder what one of them would've done if i actually them catch up haha.
