Does NO ONE want to win a dollar? Everyone still has a chance to win that thirty bucks, so keep on guessing what these cars happen to be.
Since no one decided to make an effort on Day 2 (which we’ll say is still up for grabs), and yesterday I got a little backtracked, we’ll do a double dose of guessing goodness today.
Get that cup of coffee and click that mouse, because we’re going into the archives for today’s two (yes, count ’em, 2) pictures. As always, throw the answers in the comments section, and label your guesses Quiz Picture 1 and Quiz Picture 2.
Winners will be announced, as always, in the following post. PayPal info will be exchanged. You will win a dollar.
QUIZ TIME: Day 1
QUIZ TIME: Day 2
And, just so we keep it up to date: Audi’s officially unveling its RS5 in Geneva next week (along with the A1), and under its hood will reside a 450-horse 4.2 liter V8 tuned by quattro that gets twists out 317 lb-ft of torque while returning nearly 22 mpg. There’s a gallery of official images below. As for some other quick facts: 0-100 km/h comes in 4.6 seconds, top speed is 155 mph (restricted) or 174 mph (unrestricted). Only available transmission: Audi’s DCT, the 7-speed S-Tronic. Base price: €77,700 or $105,000. Handy-dandy PR tech excerpt:
“New quattro technology: the crown-gear differential
Like all RS models, the RS 5 also applies its power to the road with quattro permanent all-wheel drive. As for the center differential, which regulates power distribution between the front and rear axles, Audi – the leading all-wheel-drive brand – unveils the next generation: a crown-gear differential.
The self-locking crown-gear center differential is compact and lightweight – and attains a high efficiency ratio.
Thanks to its package of plates, the differential can widely vary the distribution of torque between the front and rear axles. If necessary, up to 70 percent can flow to the front or as much as 85 percent toward the tail end. The 40:60 ratio of the standard rear-biased configuration ensures sporty handling.
This new differential operates in conjunction with electronic torque vectoring, which affects all four wheels. If one of the inside wheels becomes imbalanced while the vehicle is at its operational limits, then the system slightly decelerates the wheel to obviate wheel spin. This results in terrific traction on the one hand while generating a yaw moment which aids cornering.
As a perfect complement to the new quattro drivetrain, Audi can optionally position the sport differential at the rear axle. It actively distributes torque between the rear wheels in order to further boost stability and grip at the vehicle’s limits of handling. The electronic management of the RS 5 sport differential was designed to be uncompromisingly dynamic.”
