A8 Quattro - I've got it!
Just picked it up, as promised. Black Metallic color, with
purple undertones. Tiptronic, which the dealer confirmed will not be
available in the United States. Light grey interior. About 7000 kms
on the car. Dealer says price of the Quattro will be about $65K.
Drove it back to work, 12 km. Initial impressions: does not feel
markedly bigger or heavier than my 200 TQW. Definitely punchier than
my IA Stage I car; love that low-end V8 torque! Only attracted stares
from a big Infinity and a big Lexus, which is probably fine with Audi:
I'm sure they would love to have the business after those folks get
bored with their cars.
DC area folks, give a call at (301) 270-8073 if you need directions
and you want to come by around 8:00PM tonight for a look see.
