I found these intresting:

7 radiators

Brakes are 19" standard (that is wrong now, audi typo i think)

Coolent level is checked with drivers door beeing open, and level is on a piller

Carbon engine cover indicates car has been semi derestricted by audi to 174mph

car will do 208mph iirc flat out

weighs 2.1 tonnes

there are 5 ENGINE sump plugs

it takes 9 litres of oil at 13 a litre +vat

Spark plugs require the engine beeing dropped

It comes with 19" wheels so the brakes won't be 19".

I just specced one up on the audi site and it only gave the option of 19" wheels.

19" brakes under 20's would still be cutting it a bit close though would it not

You can order it with 19's on there if you want so unless the change the brakes as well which i doubt.

Also look at the picture of the 20's.

Brakes discs are at least 2" smaller than the wheels.
