The much-heralded R8 coupe takes center stage for Audi's 2008 model lineup. With a 420-horsepower, 4.2L mid-engine V8, the R8 can sprint to 60 mph in just over four seconds and can ably run through whatever curves you might be able to find, but the real story is in its visceral appeal. The R8 marries German engineering with Italian verve (the R8 shares its platform with the Lamborghini Gallardo) to great effect, and looks like nothing else on the road.
Supercar at half the price; head-turning looks; exhilarating performance; luxurious interior.
Audi's 2008 R8 delivers a driving and ownership experience that only the most exclusive marques can best, and it does so at a cost that is virtually half of most of its competitors. The striking styling, the mid-mounted engine, and the thrilling exhaust note come together to create a dynamic driving machine that is nothing short of exquisite.
