    Blackwing Order Tracking - 2023 Model Year

    It will be interesting to see how Blackwing sales track in 2023. One would imagine by Q2 of 23 most of the enthusiasts market demand will have been met. We are already seeing much greater availability to automatics for sale in inventory. I perdict we will see a fairly dramatic fall in manual...

    Blackwing Order Tracking - 2022 Model Year

    Wow, two year waits for the folks down under seeking Audis. I guess there really are other enthusiasts who can relate to our pain...

    1st Song?

    I'm a jazz lover and semi pro sax player so my first tune in the car was this: But if I had it to do over again I would have played this to christen the car...

    Media dumps

    I'm not really interested in collecting cars. My 4BW is a daily driver. What I will say is that this article smacks of considerable truth. I considered the C8 but frankly, it simply doesn't suit my needs as a daily driven track toy. Performance wise, 0-60 times excluded, the 4BW can run with...

    Racing Helmet in the mail

    Can I also add that at 6'4, one of the major reasons I love the Blackwings is that I can actually get in and out of the car without almost always hitting my head and more importantly I can sit in an aggressive upright driving position and still pass tech without my helmet touching the ceiling...

    Blackwing Order Tracking - 2022 Model Year

    @Rob I do believe the last 2022 has finally fallen from the tracker!!!! A huge thanks to you for keeping us informed, in the know, and entertained over these last 2 1/2 model years. What a wild ride! If my informal math is correct. If you ordered a 2022 CT4 V BW your average wait time was 11.3...

    CT4-V What Don't You Like About Your CT4-V Blackwing

    Correct recirculation zones are classed as low pressure zones as a opposed to laminar flows. All cars develop a low pressure zone as the air flow rushes to fill the void left by the vehicle that was previously occupied that space. Spoiler cars tend to have more of this recirculation than wing...

    CT4-V What Don't You Like About Your CT4-V Blackwing

    Facts but that's what happens with spoiler cars vs wing cars. The low pressure zone is developing right against the car which means low drag, 🤩but all that junk stays on the rear bumper 😱 The areo on these cars are amazing. Truly love the way the design cuts vs pushes through air.

    94 Used CT4-V Blackwings for sale

    If you look at the registry, the overwhelming number of stock orders were fully loaded automatics. The inverse is true for the sale orders with a little more than 61٪ being manuals. The 4s were stocked ordered and often picked up as interim cars by people awaiting custom orders. Why because...

    94 Used CT4-V Blackwings for sale

    I wouldn’t put too much stock in the number of used vehicles being representative of dissatisfaction. For the most part dealer stock orders are always automatics. Dealers stock ordered more 4s than 5s. During the crazy times we had last year it was not uncommon for dealers to offer me a chance...

    Anyone get their Blackwing badge yet? And are you putting it on?

    Decision time has finally come to my garage and still, I'm torn. I sort of like flying under the radar for most of the public. Those who know already know. But then again it would reduce the number of people who ask if it is or not. Though most figure it out by the sound. They did design it to...

    Blackwing Order Tracking - 2022 Model Year

    I think it's time we came together as a complete murder and focused our Prayers, Karma, Chi, Chakra, the Force or whatever our individual chosen means of injecting good AND productive vibes into the universe, towards the keepers of the goat pen to finally release @Missdaisy2 .

    Tapout CT4-V Blackwing Carbon Fiber Intake Test Results

    I know how to read a dynograph. The stock set up (red line) is higher than both green and blue at 2.5k to 3k. 75mph in 6th is 2400 rpm. A quick blip (not WOT) to change lanes or casually pass is in the 2.5 to 3k range often with 0 to 2lbs of boost. On public roads in traffic, you almost never...

    Tapout CT4-V Blackwing Carbon Fiber Intake Test Results

    @WONT TAP I'm both excited and some what ambivalent about this intake. As a daily driver I spend a good deal of time operating the car in a window between 900 to 2500RPM. What's crazy is this car is brilliantly responsive in this range it has plenty of power even without making boost. This...
