The 2009 Audi R8 is a carryover from the 2008 Audi R8, which is Audi's first ever mid-engine sports car. The 2009 R8 has a 420-hp V8 engine and AWD. It shares the mid-engine platform with the Lamborghini Gallardo. The Audi R8 features a standard manual in addition to the optional automated manual transmission. Audi claims a 0-62 mph time of 4.6 seconds, which many are deeming on the conservative side. The 2009 R8 offers the choice of LED or Xenon headlamps surrounded by LED running lights and indicators. The LEDs even make their way into the engine bay of the Audi R8, if you want to admire your V8 after hours. Options on the R8 include a Bang & Olufsen sound system featuring 12 specially designed speakers which adjust to changing road conditions to improve sound quality. There are 8 exterior color options, not counting the Side Blade, for the R8 ranging from Ibis White to Phantom Black. If you are looking for a balanced supercar that makes you look like a better driver than you really are, the Audi R8 is for you. You can drive it like a rookie, and it will make you feel like a pro.
