I haven’t cut George from Fourtitude any slack* after hearing he hung out with Allan McNish and put in some laps in the 2009 Audi R8 5.2 FSI V10. I mean come on, it’s not like any of us will see a weekend like this, so I had to live it via his point of view. Who wants to wait around for a drive in an Audi R8 5.2 FSI V10?
An iPhone ring tears me out of a state that’s a bit of a mash-up, mixing sheer bliss with hyperawareness of my surroundings. My mobile’s the last thing on my mind as I sit at the flat-bottomed wheel of the new Audi R8 V10, having just manhandled a fantastic canyon road on the way to driving nirvana. Car after car of Napa Valley commuters willingly moved aside for me to pass by in a wake of throaty baritone V10 growl. Now that was over all too quickly. My mobile was shrilly, calling me back to reality as it sat vibrating in the cupholder.
