Gimpy Matt Farah and the Audi R8 5.2 FSI V10 - click above to watch the video

In front of that stunning blue Audi R8 5.2 FSI V10 is the erstwhile host of The Smoking Tire and all-around good guy, Matt Farah. And while Farah might be a gifted video host, he's not the world's best snowboarder – i.e. he hosed his knee landing a snickerdoodle 720 backside grind. Or whatever the kids call them tricks. Sorry, Matt, but it's true.

But what a nightmare! The perfect car on the perfect road and he just got a pint of blood drained out of his right knee the previous day. What on earth to do? A substitute – brilliant! Get someone else to walk and talk – so to speak – like Matt. And most importantly, drive like him. But who? Who out there could possibly fill his size 12 Pilotis? We think you know where this is heading, and we think it's time for you to jump to watch the video.

      The R8 is a very good car but i think the deal breaker with this car and the GTR is looks. They both perform great so the deciding factor would be looks IMO...I feel the people who most of the time up up buying cars like the Audi...dont really know anytthing about the car and cars in general. All they care its that its fast and looks expensive.

      The GTR driver on the other hand doesnt have a history in the US and you would only know about it thru research and a actually interest in autos.

      Matt Farah is a Tool, I don't know why they hell they have him reviewing anything. By law he shouldn’t be allowed to drive anything over 200HP much less review it.

      1. He thinks his sh*t doesn't stink
      2. He's overly fat, ugly, and obnoxious
      3. He's a douche bag

      @Jonny...
      How does one get a job like this? I would be happy getting paid $0 to drive an Audi R8 V10 and just shoot the $hit. Hell! I'd pay money to be in that position.

      wasnt that song from the Prodigy's new album or did they just remix it?

      Hey Jonny, some of your reviews were off the mark and I ragged you pretty hard for them, but I have to admit you did a decent job.

      Good for you-sure you have a fun year ahead of you.

      Good video, Matt & his crew have been producing some pretty quality stuff since the Garage 419 days. Not sure how they make money, since it seems like the audience is still quite small, but whatever, keep up the good work Matt.

      That was a waste of 14 minutes. Bad review of a good car.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Douchery.
        • 5 Years Ago
        agreed
        • 5 Years Ago
        Yep. Though Johnny was pretty good. Matt needs to take it down a couple notches though, yeesh.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Thanks Tim!

      Matt, if you had me as your guest driver instead Johnny Cheaperman who only drove for nothing, I would have slipped you $100 and we could have taken the R8 to the local gentleman's club after for some research on the female perspective of the R8...
