รีวิว Q&A audi a8 performance exhaust

What are the ten best supercar engines of all time?

That, is a highly subjective question. I'll list which I think are the ten best supercar/hypercar engines (in no particular order) and why they made the list. Fair ? Thought so. 5.0Lt V10 (e60 M5, BMW) This was a time when 500bhp was in Lamborghini's & Ferrari's best. BMW made the motor exclusively for the M5 & the M6. Sure the cars were butt ugly, but the motor on this thing.. This is as close as you'll get to a BMW Hot Rod. It revved all the way to 8250rpm and made 510bhp, propelling the car all the way to 200mph. And this was in 2005. 7.3 Lt V12 (One-77, Aston Martin) The fact that this is the most powerful naturally aspirated v12 will not escape your mind once you put your crystal fob in. The classic case of British craftanship combined with this baritone will make you feel like the man (James Bond) himself. It’s not the power, rated to 750bhp, but the experience that's special with this one. Automotive art indeed.. 6.0 Lt V12 (Zonda R, F, Cinquè, AMG/Pagani) Horacio Pagani's collaboration with AMG Mercedes was mostly one sided. meaning there was no input from Pagani when it came to their wonder child. This 6.0 Lt V12 is all AMG. The violence this thing puts it's driver through alone should prove that beyond doubt. This motor makes, in one tune, close to 760bhp. And It is a piece of work, this thing. 2.0Lt Turbo (AMG, Mercedes) What's a tiny 2 Lt 4cylinder Pot doing in this fray ? I'll explain. by churning close to 380bhp now, This is the most powerful production spec 2.0lt motor ever made. period. Also gives close to 40mpg. That's unheard of in a performance sedan. 5.0lt triplex supercharged V8 (Agera RS, Koenigsegg) This one needs no introduction. The legendary One:1 is powered by a supercharged 5.0 V8 that, with koenigsegg's patented triplex technology, makes about 1 MegaWatt of power. That's 1340bhp in car math. It is no surprise this car currently holds multiple world records for top speed and fastest acceleration runs. 6.5 Lt V12 (Aventador SV, Lamborghini) The best v12 Lamborghini ever made will probably be it's last one. The 6.5Lt v12 in this thing is tuned to perfection. The redline kicks in at 9250rpm and the motor, along with all the savegery, makes 750 bhp in the "SV". If that isn't great, I don't know what is. 6.0 Lt twin turbo W12 (CGT/CFS W12, Bentley.) This deserves a spot here purely on a technological basis. The w12, which was also introduced in the Audi A8 after first being afeatured in the VW Phaeton, is now used exclusively in the A8(Audi) and the Bentley’s continental flying spur. This w12 is rated to make 626bhp in the Bentley, which is understandable, considering that propels the 2.5 tonne luxo-barge to over 200mph with ease.. 3.8lt Twin turbo Flat 6 (911 GT2 RS, Porsche) The legendary flat-6 from Stuttgart has been honed to perfection over several years. What first started as an interesting approach now became their party piece. This terribly well balanced 3.8lt flat 6, in the new GT2rs, makes close to 700bhp. 6.3 Lt V12 (812 Superfast, Ferrari) Ferrari makes great v12 engines. That’s no secret. However, they hit it out of the park with this particular 6.3Lt v12, This one’s tuned to make 789bhp at 9500rpm. That’s… high strung. This engine also powers the LaFerrari series. Should I even bother talking about the exhaust noises.? 16.4 Lt W16 (Chiron, Bugatti) Do I have to explain myself with this one ? First seen in 2009, the w16 that produced 1001bhp came with 10 radiators and 4 turbos is nothing short of tech wizardry. In 2017, the same engine makes 1491bhp. Like I inferred, a no brainer. The above listed, according to me, are 10 of the greatest performance car engines. Ever. Some other honorable mentions include 6.0 Lt Twin turbo V12 (Q7 v12 TDi, Audi) "The Diesel v12 that made 500bhp" 5.2 Lt V10 (Audi & Lamborghini) 6.0 Lt V12 (BMW/Rolls Royce) 4.0 Lt Twin Turbo V8 (RS6/RS7, Audi) 4.2 Lt Twin Turbo V8 (720s, Mclaren) 6.3 Lt supercharged V8 (Demon, Dodge)

What happened to cars with four-wheel steering like the Mitsubishi Eclipse?

It was a promising technology that caught on particularly well with Japanese automakers, but was implemented far too quickly. Essentially, it was a prototype technology - and that wound up being a huge problem. The systems were complex, relatively unreliable, and didn’t have tight enough control over how aggressively the rear wheels steered. That last issue was arguably the biggest problem - having relatively simple control over what the rear wheels were doing made steering feel very, very strange. As a result, consumers pretty much uniformly didn’t like it - even though it was a genuine performance improvement. Here are a couple well-known examples of other cars with four-wheel (or all-wheel) steering - just in case you recognize any of them: Mitsubishi 3000 GT: Honda Prelude: Nissan 300ZX and Skyline GT-R: In particular, people who own the Skyline GT-R and 300ZX will often do a “HICAS delete” - which is slang for removing the steering rack and electronics that control the rear wheels. There are even Youtube videos dedicated to it: As electronic controls have improved in recent years, automakers have started adding it back into luxury cars - just with a lot more subtlety than before. Just to give a feeling for how common this is, four-wheel steering is either standard or optional on the Infiniti G35, Acura RLX, Porsche 911, Lexus GS, Audi A8, BMW 5/6/7 series, and Lamborghini Urus. That is not an exhaustive list by any means - almost every luxury car brand has at least one model available with it as an option.

What European cars would Americans pick as a perfect sleeper for racing?

What kind of racing? I'll assume you mean 'real world stoplight dragrace' racing [a very bad idea in the best of circumstances] and not 'take it to a racetrack with lefts AND rights' racing, which is the most fun you can have in cars and incidentally what most american cars are terrible at with a few exceptions. Flame on. Re the mk 4/5 r32 - it was (an awesome car and cult hero) never much of a performer when new [very heavy, n/a, slow, super understeery, wonky awd system], these days would barely keep up with a camry [w/ the 275hp v6]. The new Golf R is much more potent, but also very 'hot hatch' looking - hardly a 'sleeper'. Quad exhausts on a 4 cylinder? Pffft. Also they did make mk4 golf 4 doors. Very cool cars, especially in 1.8t / manual. The fast bmw's and benzes [m, amg] are also pretty shouty, not very sleepy. However the new m5 and big amg benzes make HUGE power and despite the badges and goofy blue brakes, most folks wouldn't be able to tell them apart from the lesser versions. My pick for 'unexpected boulevard bruiser' would be an a6/a7/a8 audi. These come with a 3.ot [supercharged v6] or 4.0t [twin turbo v8] depending on model - especially in something like an 3.0t a6 wagon [rare, but exist] - or the a8 [4.0tt] they are *very* fast cars and typically dyno much higher than what the manufacturer is rating them at. This extends to the "s" and "rs" versions which are even faster and virtually indistinguishable from the base models. Here's an S8 walking away from an R8 in a dragrace [despite the badge you'd never tell from a normal A8]. That's pretty damn sleepy. If it's more roadracing / track day stuff you're after.. a well setup e30 bmw can be very fast and surprise the crap out of much 'faster' cars on technical tracks. otherwise, the cars that are usually fast are the cars you'd expect to be fast - bmw m anything, audi r/rs anything, etc.

Are Audi cars reliable?

I’ll preface by mentioning that I’ve driven nearly 2 million kilometers in a variety of American, Japanese, British, French, German and Swedish cars. My father was a mechanic. My brother was service manager for both Toyota and VW dealerships. I’ve had VW cars and vans and still own the last VW truck sold in North America (bought new in Oct. ‘92), we’ve had 2 A6 wagons, 1 A6 twin-turbo sedan with 6-speed manual, I’m driving an A4 Quattro Avant now, and I’ve also owned Mercedes S-Class, and I have a ’93 300SEC Cabrio (the last year that they were hand-built by Karmann, with global production less than 1,000 units). If you are talking about Audis built in the last 20 years, the answer is YES they are reliable — provided that you perform the maintenance needed. If you have a turbo engine, such as the 1.8t or 2.0t (or TDI) then you must spend the $$$ for the approved oil. If you think you are saving $$$ by using normal oil, you will find that the oil is cooked as it goes through the glowing-hot turbo and turns into goo, and you will discover VW/Audi’s infamous “sludge problem”. The sludge problem is not a vehicle problem. It is an owner problem. Putting in cheap oil will not save money. Our 1998 A6 wagon (that was the old style, the sedans changed in ‘98, but wagons weren’t updated till ‘99) was purchased with > 200,000 MILES on it. My 2000 A6 2.7t had 170,000 miles on it. My wife’s second A6 wagon, a 2001, came from Utah with 168,000 miles on it. And the 2006 A4 was bought in Vancouver BC with 117,000 kms (due for a timing belt) and rattling like a diesel because it had no oil-pressure due to sludge, because the idiot dealer that bought it at the auction did a quick $29 oil-change on it. (the 2.0t takes oil that is normally CAD$17/litre but it comes on sale at Canadian Tire a few times a year for half that price). The cars are supremely reliable and parts are dirt-cheap online. But they CAN be expensive to fix if something breaks, and they are heavy so things will wear faster than a Japanese tin-can, so I’ll provide some advice for those looking at buying a European car in general, and Audi specifically: SERVICE: Take the car to the dealer while it is under warranty. But once the warranty is over, stay away from the dealer. They are too expensive. Find “the local guy” for your make of car (there’s at least one, in nearly every place) where people lineup to get their car serviced. THIS APPLIES TO EVERY BRAND OF CAR! (not including exotics) AVOID: the 1990s to mid 2000s V6 engines due to the high cost of timing belt replacements. Avoid the V8 due to the high cost of everything!! The 4-cyl. turbo engines, and the later V6 with the timing chain are your preferred engine. (and any version of the TDI diesel is great too, but I’m in Canada, where those are rare). GET THE QUATTRO! That means that you get a “Real transmission” too. There are Front-wheel-drive A4 models with a CVT transmission. Most have no problem, but some fail, and they aren’t something you can fix in your back yard and will be expensive. Personally, I would avoid the CVT. (I’d go for a manual, but my wife wants an A/T even though she’s owned 5-speed cars too). Plus, you’ll get more $$$ at re-sale if the car has AWD. At least anywhere that gets snow, or has dirt roads. IF you buy a high-mileage car with Auto trans, go get the tranny fluid changed, just as a preventive maintenance thing. If you’re getting the engine oil changed, then the tranny fluid change is probably well under $100 and its cheap insurance. (I’ve done this with VW, Audi, Ford, Volvo, etc. cars. I’ve never had an A/T fail. I’m not sure it helps, but it makes me feel better knowing that my car’s transmission with 200,000 miles on it has new fluid) CHECK the FRONT SUSPENSION on A4, A6, A8 if over 150,000 miles. These are heavy cars. Like the BMW 5-series, Mercedes E-Class and S-class, the front suspension will wear faster than that of a Civic or Mazda 3 or even Golf, Jetta, A3, Beetle, etc. and the A4 and larger has (had) a “virtual link” front suspension with 4 control arms on each side, each with an inboard bushing and out-board ball-joint (yes, 8 ball-joints in the front, versus a typical American or Japanese car with 2). However, due to their popularity, there are many suppliers offering replacement parts. You don’t change the ball-joint and bushing, you just swap out the entire arm. Miele “10-piece kits” with 8 control arms and 2 tie-rods (the steering linkage) can be found online under US$500. Labour is a couple hours per side. So budget $1000 to replace the front suspension/steering components when you’re getting closer to 200,000 miles (320,000 kms). And that service requires a wheel alignment too. BTW: This is what a 2001 A6 Quattro Avant with 185,000 miles look like after spending $1k to replace the front suspension, plus $700 for an Eibach Sport Suspension kit (springs and shocks) and $520 for 17″ S6 wheels with Falken Ziex tires. My wife’s 2nd A6 in Regina Saskatchewan on our annual cross-Canada (Vancouver to Ontario) road-trip, which we completed in 2 days (cruise control @ 140 kmph across the prairies). Yes, I was stopped by the RCMP, but only once, and the constable spent over 10 minutes asking questions about the car before letting us go without a ticket :) CHECK THE MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE BEFORE BUYING. The used car lots around here have lots of Audis with around 115,000 to 120,000 kms. That’s when they are due for a timing belt ($1,500 for 4-cyl, but $3,500 for older V6), DSG fluid change, differential fluid change, radiator flush, brake-fluid flush …. around CAD$3,500 in service for the 4-cyl turbo engines! The owner sees that quotation from the service department, and says “how much is it worth as a trade-in?”. The cars get traded, and rather than do the expensive maintenance, the dealer sends them to the auction, and they land in a used-car dealership. But THE CAR NEEDING MAINTENANCE COULD BE THE BEST DEAL. If you do one thing: get the dealer to have the timing belt changed at a VW or Audi dealership, and include the receipt for the work (for warranty purposes) before you buy. Example: in 2016 I found a mint 1-owner 2006 (first year of new body, so looks “newer”) A4 2.0t Quattro Avant that’s NOT Silver on Black with all the power-memory-seats, front/rear heated seats, automatic lights and wipers, etc., but 117,000 kms. I got the VIN and checked Audi, and they had no record of the timing belt being changed (VW/Audi are on one database, so I can get a VIN for a car in Florida and check the service records for free at any Audi dealership in Canada for example … they will also print out wiring diagrams and stuff for you for free too, so you don’t need to buy manuals … important if you are importing US cars and need to modify lights to DRL). Similar cars were around $14k at other dealers. This dealer had dropped their asking price down to $12k. I bought the car for $10,500 with taxes IN, and the timing belt replaced by the VW dealer a few blocks away (the Passat and GTI had the same 2.0t engine). If I back out the taxes (12%) and $1,500 timing belt change (with new oil and filter) then the car cost me $7,875 … and now its good for another 117,000 kms. I did have to deal with the sludge. Online, VW owners in the US are spending US$1200 to have the dealer clean out the engine and install a new oil pickup. My German mechanic, Verner, (he was a BMW mechanic in Germany before immigrating to Canada) removed the oil-pan and cleaned everything out, cleaned the original oil pickup, re-installed with sealant to prevent leaks, filled it with the best synthetic oil, plus the optional Audi hi-volume oil filter for under CAD$650 including taxes. That fall, we drove the car to San Francisco, and then down the coast to San Luis Obispo just for a fun road-trip. It now has > 150,000 kms and has only had oil-changes and new tires. SUMMARY: Buying a 5 to 10 year old Audi, I get a car with 100,000 kms on it for 20% of the cost of a new one (an A4 Allroad with options like our A4 is CAD$55,000) including an investment in maintenance. Brakes are cheaper than Japanese cars and last longer. The exhaust systems will last 500,000 miles. You have to replace tires, wipers, and batteries regardless of the car, and the costs are pretty much the same. I would drive from Vancouver to Key West in this car with no hesitation (and I’ve driven that in the past, via Cape Breton Island going south, and via San Diego coming home). And I know that if I get in an accident, my chances of survival are much higher than in a common American or Japanese car. Meanwhile, I get to enjoy a superbly comfortable car with good handling, a good audio system, AWD for those rare days when we have snow, fantastic climate control, the insanely fast window defrosting typical of German (and also Volvo) cars for less than my friends buying a new Altima or Camry or Accord. Oil changes definitely cost more, but that applies to ALL turbo engines, including the new Hondas, etc. YES Audis are reliable. And they last a long time. If you don’t screw up on the maintenance.

Which is most luxury car brand out of these three (Audi, Mercedes or BMW?

Mercedes makes the best luxury limousines. This S560 is the best car in its class and if you want some of the best performances for a limousine, the best option (out of anything produced by Audi, BMW, or Mercedes) can be this AMG S63 or even this AMG S65, which sadly will no longer be produced in the very near future and if you want even more luxury you can opt for the Mercedes-Maybach S650, which has no Audi/BMW counterpart, and in my opinion is on par with the Rolls-Royce Phantom and the Bentley Mulsanne I happen to think that BMW currently makes the best luxury SUVs, namely the X5 and the X7. They just look so much better than their Audi and Mercedes counterparts, and their quality is second to none. While the upcoming GLS-class is much less luxurious than the current S-class (which it is supposed to SUVize), the interior of this X7 is way better than that of the 7 series, and the X7’s front grill is much less awkward than that of the upcoming 2020 7 series. Mercedes makes the best luxury coupes, like this S560 And also the best luxury cabriolets, like this S560 and also the best sports cars, like this AMG GT The BMW M850i and the upcoming BMW M8 are equally excellent cars that combine sport, luxury and a gorgeous design in a way only BMW can (but I do not particularly like its interior) This Audi A8 is the most technologically advanced car you can buy, possibly (but it is still less good than an S560). Tragically, it has fake exhaust tips, which is a crime and the upcoming Audi RS6 should be the very best in its class, if it is a dignified sequel to its predecessor
