The botton we all eating our favourate honey.

LOL What?...

And yes, it does have a proper manual, Im glad they offer one it it in this type of acar, S-Tronic is faster, but no DCT can every inflict the same kind of joy to me a nice H-pattern can, However, in this type of car, im glad they offer both and don't ditch it in favor of simple performance.

Although, I wouldn't call myself a hardcore driver, but I do frequent the end of the month trackdays at the local circuits, not as much as I used to, but still frequent.

@PassWord

...What "Real" Car Enthusist isn't a manual type?...

Not many from what ive seen.

@Br2 As i thought you are a manual type...May i ask how old are you ?

When it comes to what is better, There is no definitive answer, EVERYTHING which goes that route, is always an Opinion. I don't "Particularly" believe there is such a thing as better, or best.

But saying whats what is only and everyones opinion. But like ive said, I believe the best DCT on the market today is the PDK followed by the S-Tronic. Know which car is better, ill never know, I think a GT3 is better then both cars, same with a ZO6, and I would take them over both, but does that mean its actually better? No, it doesn't. just opinion.

Im a manual type of guy, so I could care less since I wont buy a Auto or DCT by choice, atleast not if I can help it.

@Dario911 Mayby you are right, i dont know. Ferrari's gearbox is better than 997's PDK. Mayby 991 has better gearbox but we must wait for tests performed by serious magazines to proof that. For now it is an opinion.

Dario911  8y ago

@dddd: Sorry, but the best gearbox is the new PDK on the 991 series. Faster and smoother than Ferrari gearbox.


User avatar

@Br2+ Ferrari's gearbox is considered as the best now. Even in great comparison (Road and Track ?) - 458, Mp4-12c, 997 Turbo S PDK, SLS AMG , Noble - ppl who know supercars say that 458 has the best gearbox and it was direct comparison.

Everything about a car is subjective, Looks, sound, performance, tech etc even laptimes. So, Saying that. As far as DCTs go, I say Audis S-Tronic Gearbox is better then Ferraris F1 Gearbox, But as far as best DCT, I would give it to Porsche no question. Better or more exotic interior or quality doesn't make a better car, Wether which one is better, I cant say, nor would I say one is better then the other, but I no which one id chose.

Anybody that doesn't worship Ferrari like you is absurd in your view


User avatar

dddd  8y ago

@Br2+ look? It is subjective...Interior also coze 458 Italia has more exotic interior and also has very good quality.

Gearbox ? Are you serious ? Ferrari's F1 gearbox is the best now...denying that is absurd.


User avatar

...Well, Know who DIDNT know those 2 wouldn't show up here?...Am I connected with Psychic Friends HotLine?.....Hello?..

Anywhoo, R8 has better gearbox definetley, Looks better, sounds better, better interior, I don't really care for either engines, nor am I a badge or drivetrain or country whore, so that doesn't matter, R8 would be easier to afford and maintain, Comfort and looks are subjective..(But so isn't everything I just listed-_-)

You wouldn't have to put the R8 away in the winter(Nor wood you any car really)

For me, I don't see any reason to take a 458 over a R8 V10 Plus, Sure its faster and maybe more of a hoot to drive, But how often would one do that being your average joe?..

Meh, Ill just take a ZO6 AND GT3 for the price of both(Not including options lol)

@Driver i understand that you are a fan of Audi but Lamborghini knows how to make great supercars and Audi also can make supercars - R8 is proof...Audi R8 Plus is piece of realy good supercar.

But Ferrari has V8 engine and despite that it has more power and better throttle response. And also sound of 458 Italia's engine is awesome. Gearbox of Ferrari is well known - its the best gearbox nowadays (only pneumatic gearboxes in race cars are better). It does not mean that R8 has bad gearbox, its new gearbox also is realy good.

And R8 Plus V10 has more torque ? 458 Italia and R8 Plus have the same amount of NM...4,5l vs 5,2l...

@obam
have u ever compared base technical data of Gallardo and R8...they dont even share the same wheelbase... and they dont share the chassis, the only part Audi took from the Gallardo was the shitty e-gear automatic transmission which is now replaced by a proper dual clutch transmission.
Next to that ALL Gallardo chassis are completely build and painted in Germany since the first one and all Gallardo engines are build by Audi since the first one in Audis engine plant in Gyoer

@obam That's why R8 is slower than Italia. If it will be fully Audi it would be the fastest.
@dddd new 7 speed S-tronic is great. And better engine I mean V10 with more torque, much better sound and not burning like a torch (Ferrari...)


User avatar

dddd  8y ago

@Driver lol you must learn something about cars then or you are a fanatic fanboy of Audi...458 Italia has much better tech, engine and gearbox...

R8 is a fantastic car. No doubt about that. But Audi's engine and gearbox are not even close to those of 458 Italia.

R8 for me without a doubt. R8 drives like perfect RWD car, have better engine, better tech and looks thousands times better, actually it is one of the best looking cars ever made.
