    just saw this a few nights ago... it's pretty cool.

    I also downloaded it, its roughly 350mb video. If someone wants to host it, i'll gladly send the file tonight.

    the myth about breaking in your engine well, you'll see it in the show/video.

    Re: National Geo Shows R8 Production

    Does anyone know when this will air in the U.S.? I checked the NatGeoTV website and saw the episodes listed for the Lambo, Camaro, and a couple of other cars, but nothing on the R8. (I thought it might be included in the Lambo episode, but the capsule write-up said it was a visit to the Sant' Angelo factory.)

    There is another thread on this board about these shows too. In the UK the show is Mega Factories, In the US it is Ultimate Factories.

    I continue to check the NatGeoTV site and and they do not have the Audi R8 show listed yet, in the schedule through April 8th, for the US.
