7-speed dual-clutch automatic
It's almost sunset on Pismo Beach and the shadows are getting long. Your long-legged weekend companion is begging for just a few more minutes of sun. You give in, again, and toss out another reminder that there is a reservation waiting for you in Paso Robles in less than an hour. Thankfully there is also a limited-edition 540 hp Audi R8 RWS (for Rear Wheel Series) waiting nearby.
Your feet are still sandy, but there isn't time to tidy up, so you fire up the 5.2L V10 engine and click the 7-speed dual-clutch transmission into first gear. There are 40 miles to cover and roughly the same number of minutes until you're expected at a multi-course meal accompanied by amazing wine selections from the region. Luckily this German machine can hit 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds and top out at almost 200 miles per hour.
You make quick work of the 101, Audi's first non-Quattro car since the early Auto Union days handles both highways and backroads with aplomb. Luckily, you slip the pristine Ibis white Audi into the valet line with barely ten minutes to spare. Just enough time to freshen up and check in before dinner.
