Went to observe my grandson drive a Lamborgini today. He's a polce
officer and there is a local business that rents high-end cars by the
day. The Lambo is $650 for a week-day, and $500 a day for more than
one day. They had a Porsche 911 Turbo cab, a Bently Continental GT,
and the Lambo. I told him to do the Bently, but I was overruled. This
company has a police and fireman appreciation day each year where they
allow those that sign up a chance to run their exotics.
Jeff took off and the sounds were fantastic. Sounded more like a
motorcycle than a 4 wheeler. He came back 20 minutes later totally
. He's been to a couple of driving schools, including
the one I used to teach, and he has driven my RS6 at the track. He
said he'd druther the RS6. Steering, transmission, and handling were
better! Surprised the hell out of me.
The "Yikes" came in on the way home when my wife and I stopped by an
Audi dealer to check on a bike carrier for the A8L. They wanted $700+
for the two roof rack bars, and the bike carrier set-up. That back
seat is looking better all the time.
