Yes, thats right - on my first weekend of owning my RS3, I managed a bit of fun with a Gallardo.
There's a bit more to the story though:
I was driving home from Aviemore on Sunday, and decided to take the scenic route via Tomintoul and over the Lecht Ski Centre - amazing stretch of road for those who don't know it, with loads of straights, twisty sections and camber changes etc.
I'd been having a bit of fun through the twisties and came up to a long straight. I was very tempted to gun it, but thought best not since I had a few mates in the car. Looked in my rear view mirror and saw a red Porsche GT3 closing me down. I was very tempted to have a go, but decided against it. And how fortunate that was - got to the end of the straight and a cop car came round the bend... I think the Porsche just got away with it.
So, went through another twisty section and now I look in my rear view mirror to see a black Gallardo. Right I thought, lets give this a go. TBH, I don't know how hard he was pushing it, but there were a few occassions I managed to pull away from him. I know on the straights I wouldn't stand a chance, but through the bends I think he was quite surprised.
After about 10mins of fun I decided to pull over and let him past - no point pushing the RS3 too hard on her first proper outing. Window was down, and by god that Gallardo sounded the bomb. Got a little thumbs up from him too...
All in all though, I am so happy with my purchase. The handling and acceleration is outstanding. I've read in a few reviews about understeer, but I never really noticed that too much. The car does slide a bit of you push it hard enough, but never so that I felt out of control.
Got some pics, but no idea how to post them. Can someone let me know how to do this?
