Audi R8 Coupe 2007

AUDI crashes the supercar party with a two-seater mid-engined sports car so accessible and complete that it evokes memories simultaneously of the Honda NSX, Porsche 911 and Ferrari Dino. The Volkswagen-owned luxury brand has been itching to build a car like this for decades, and even though Italian stablemate Lamborghini’s Gallardo has played a large part in the development of the striking R8, it is still very much an Audi – as well as a hardcore driver’s car, but with a softer, more forgiving side. This is a sensational vehicle.
