    :shock:...!!

    That's why i hate this money supremacy..!!
    Technology was never an issue for Ducati or any other such marque as they invest more than required in their R&D & ends up being bankrupt. Problem is too far advanced vehicles & very less sale volume due to higher price tags. Struggle for margins & that's how they do dip dip. it's nothing but Ducati's technology that Audi is buying it for. They won't mind another 1 billion dollar. Sure, it will help their R&D instead. They will filter out the things that could be used for Mass level production instead of low volume products & start their own bike company.

    I mean What the hell, A toy maker like Hero motorcycles... Boooo Hoooo Hoooo...!!!

    VW's Ducati purchase seems like the addition of a trophy brand, as a guy very aptly reported in the newspaper.

    Plus, now VW can claim that they have a competitor to BMW's world-beater superbike - S1000RR.

    But, it'll take much more from Ducati to beat the S1000RR. It's a modern legend already.:)

    I loved the "words of SUN" who once wrote me that although GTX was owned by some very good drivers, Good drivers will hardly get a hand on Linea/Punto. There are very few people who can really tap into the true potential of these vehicles, thanks to this wonderful media. All good talent is driving chinese stuff. These vehicles don't derserved to be in sight for longer than 30 secs (at least on highways & floating traffic). Rest of the stuff is just that crap:lol.

    I have the habit of letting them go for 100 feet away or so & then absolutely blasting through them@170-180.
    Shock them so deep that they feel terrified even of a parked FIAT henceforth:mrgreen:

    By the way, SX4 Petrol was the culprit yestrday. It was at some 130-140 km/hr when it overtook & disappeared with in 30-40 secs. He didn't even think of coming behind when i absoluely rocked his car with all the air-drag that 90 HP brought with it. Kill them sweetly. Don't let them be a competitor to you.

    They are also launching it in US as 2013 Yr Model. They internally has named it as 500 Ellezero:confused:?
    Car looks good though. Inspired from Mini Countrymen. Not bad if they can further make hay with 500's nameplate.

    Lol.. Ganges this Victoria looks so so so so... weak just like some one trapped in Sudan's draught:mrgreen:
    If you are aware that China is the biggest market for Audi's now. Last year it emerged as the biggest selling region for Audi.
    Audi/BMW's have come through a long way in designing aspects which was more of an Italian foray from early 80's.
    They really know these days how to put a car together. I like Audi's personally in it's own way. A6 has got something very charming in it that i am yet to discover:confused:. I love it's looks.
